POP & STOP: #SAVETHEBEER - Opener and Sealer

 AS SEEN ON...

Every minute of every day, beers are abandoned, lost and wasted. Fresh craft brew, spilled and gone. Perhaps you are savoring your favorite beer throughout the night and just want to keep it fresh. Or maybe you just don’t want your beer spilling all over where it shouldn't be. Either way, we've got the answer!

It’s time to save the beer.

Introducing Pop & Stop, one of the world’s first two-in-one bottle opener and sealer, made right here in the USA using 3D printer technology.

Simple Sealing

BUT… most products on the market don’t solve the problem well. This one does.

Open. Drink. Seal.  It's that simple!

Key chain sized, it’s perfect for replacing that old bottle opener you have because it comes with the added capability of sealing the beer bottle, trapping that wonderful, wonderful carbonation. 

The secret to anti-gravity beer
The secret to anti-gravity beer

Pop & Stop is ideal for you, and really, anyone who loves beer. 

Designed by an Aerospace engineer and beer lover, we are raising money to take this product to the next level.  Right now, we are using a 3D printer to make these.  That's cool, but what we really need is a mold to help take this to the next level. 

We plan on keeping all the manufacturing in the USA, so we need your help. The rise of craft beer is an American phenomenon--let's keep it local.  The mold will help us customize Pop & Stop for you or your company.  When we raise enough money for a plastic mold, we'll take it to the next step with metal--an aerospace-grade item. Think of all the beer you will save for you and others... Support us and share with your friends!

Some of the ways Pop & Stop serves you:

1. Keeps the freshness of your beer for 48 hrs or more

2. Keeps strangers or friends from adding things to your beer

3. Helps avoid spillage during bumps, drops and knocks

4. Opens and seals at your leisure

5. Identifies your beer with different color options or personalization

6. Works on all beer types except some twist offs

7. Works on most glass bottled soda

8. Each unit opens hundreds of bottles in its lifetime

We are patent pending and have a dozen more designs we are hoping to launch in 2015, along with many more functional applications.

First and foremost, our passion started with craft beer and the tremendous waste we saw of a national treasure. Help us help the nation and the industry! Join the movement and we will all be eternally thankful!

Support, share, promote and let us know if we can help in any way!

Risks and challenges

Like many Crowdfunding campaigns, manufacturing and shipping is the trickiest item. In some ways, it is like telling your significant other you will meet them in 30 minutes... and then running into traffic. You know, and she knows, that you will get there, but it will take a little longer than expected (and your significant other will forgive you).

Luckily, with modern apps, you can re-route to get around the traffic. That's what we've done--made back up plans and alternative routes that are conservative so your product gets to you on time.

We are knocking out the 3D printed rewards now, so there is little risk there. That's the beauty of 3D printing--if you want it, you can build it.
