I’ll keep this one, it’s beauty.

Oh sure this is classy but I put my booze in a paper bag and I’m a just a cheap drunkard you gotta problame with that let’s take this outside you wanna go you wanna go you think you’re a tough guy you’re not so tough!

I have this flask!

It is definitely a looker.

Alas, it broke the night it was gifted to me (nigh on ten years ago) when a sharp drop upon the floor of a pub in Brussels. The gasket got unseated and the window fell out; I put it back together, but it had a minute leak ever since.

The good news is all I needed was a hard rubber mallet to knock it all back into place a few years back, and it has been working swell ever since.

Pretty.
$31CDN for one on amazon.ca.
$93 for the set of two… Yeesh.


#6

Bourbon, Irish Whiskey and Rum.

Irish - OK - but why are the rest capitalized?

Over the years there have been a number of BB ads for various flasks.

Who carries flasks anymore, except as part of a period costume?

I’ve never seen anyone pull out a flask anywhere. When and where are they being used?


#9

no idea. i find this combo both cheaper and more effective.


#10

Last time flasks were mentioned @japhroaig called me a philistine because despite owning one, I said I was never in a situation where I needed to be out and about with whiskey on hand.

I now own two, because I got this one for Father’s Day.

I still have no need for a flask. I need a new lifestyle.


#11

I have one! I take it out whenever i’m going anywhere where the booze is either too expensive, or too shitty. It’s good for late night drunk walks home, during winter.


#12

I swear he just passed it to me!


#13

I generally find I am not alone to be carrying a flash when at public events. I don’t take it with for a trip to the market, but if I travel by ground or sea, I have it with me.


#14

But it’s for alcohol, not water or coffee/tea? And for a short while – a few hours at most – not a fortnight in the wilderness or anything like that? It just seems like a lot of weight and volume to lug around for the occasional sip of hard alcohol.

I guess we don’t go to the same sorts of public events, or I’m really unobservant!


#15

But there is no good space on it to engrave the titles of the feature films you’ve worked on

I have a couple of flasks- the Portside one, and a somewhat larger, traditional, curved pocket flask (maybe 8 ounces). I use them all the time.

-At music festivals, where it’s nice to have something nippy to pass around or even for good old self-inebriation.
-Burning Man, where it’s surprisingly easy to find yourself two miles from camp and being gifted a mixer without an alcohol. Or where you might want to gift a drink.
-At weddings, where a classy flask with a good scotch in it is generally well received. Think: informal toasts during the inevitable delays.
-At park BBQs where plopping a bottle of whiskey in the beer/soda cooler is a bit weird, but some select folks might appreciate a bit of decent what-have-you. Even family events that would not want an entire bottle of liquor showing up will often be fine with a flask, since the amount is so small.

In my experience, here are some flask tips:

-Flasks are meant to be shared. Bring it for yourself, and you’re a selfish alcoholic, bring it to pass around, and you’re a generous friend.
-Consider the occasion. Cheap tequila is great for an outdoor festival, expensive whiskey good for more formal occasions.
-Consider the use. If you’re bringing something to mix drinks with on the go, or to save money at a day-long event, go larger. If the intention is more ceremonial, go small and focus on quality.
-Sometimes I carry both- the larger one to spike drinks during the day, the smaller one to drink neat for “the occasion.”
-Go hard- flasks are small, so there won’t be much and it’ll be taken in small amounts. Hard liquor shines here, mixed drinks fall flat.

And before y’all freak out- I’m not a raging alcoholic. I use mine maybe once a month on average, and I’m an avid festival goer. It’s a nice way to class up a rowdy festival, and inject a bit of liveliness into a stodgy event without being too frat boy about it.

That is an excellent use for a flask. If you have snow, you can even make some pretty decent margaritias.


#18

Yup… backpacking. Small, lightweight.


#19

Agreed. I I think the only time I have used it is at the occasional folk music festival.

Being a modern adult is so boring sometimes.

I have a flask or two, but I’ve never used them since I don’t drink. But I’ve always wanted to have something I could sip out of them! Sodee-pop? Nah, too small for that. Hot chocolate? Maybe not insulated well enough.

What’s something yummy I could sip out of a flask that doesn’t have to be alcoholic?
