  • The Vermonter Flask: Made by Vermonters for the USA

    Posted on March 27, 2014


    There's been some pretty terrific things to come out of the state of Vermont. Maple syrup. Cheese. Ben and Jerry's ice cream.


    I'd like to add a new terrific thing to this list: The Vermonter Flask. This here new sturdy flask is handcrafted right in Vermont (so you know it's made in the USA) and constructed of American copper. What makes this flask different than the others in the Jacob Bromwell product lineup? It features a handy-dandy screw top that guarantees that it's 100% leakproof. So go ahead, fill it to the brim with 9 ounces of your favorite beverage or liquor and have peace of mind that every precious drop will be contained.


    Not only it is guaranteed not to leak, but like all of my products, it also comes with a lifetime guarantee. If you're not happy with it in any way, you may return it for an exchange or a full refund. That's my promise to you. You can learn more about The Vermonter Flask right over here.

  • Springing Into Daylight Savings Time

    Posted on March 7, 2014



    This Sunday, March 9, marks the beginning of Daylight Savings Time--which means all you folks need to turn your clocks ahead one hour Saturday night, lest you show up for work an hour late on Monday, or miss important appointments! But why DO we have this annoying ritual of "springing" clocks ahead in the spring and "falling" them back in the autumn? Ah, that's an itchy question...


    Most folks reckon that DST was due to American farmers from my generation who needed an extra hour of daylight to work their fields. The real deal is that a gentleman from New Zealand named George Vernon Hudson proposed the practice so that he would have more daylight to collect insects (he was an entomologist, and a rather selfish sounding fellow in my opinion!) An Englishman named William Willett advocated DST in Great Britain because he was an avid golfer and the extra hour would give him more time to hit the links!


    DST didn't become officially adopted until 1916, when Germany and its WWI allies implemented it to conserve coal during wartime. And it didn't truly catch one in the U.S. until the energy crisis of the 1970s.


    The irony is that although we appear to be "gaining" an hour of daylight starting this weekend, we're really losing an hour from changing the hour that ol' Jacob here could be using to manufacture more American made housewares for you folks...or catching some ZZZZZs! I guess I'll have to wait until October for that!

  • A Flask Fit for a Hollywood Legend

    Posted on February 11, 2014


    Has there ever been another motion picture star as tough, rugged and all-American as John Wayne? He starred in 142 movies, and helped to epitomize the on-screen cowboy with his "true grit." John Wayne once said that "A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do." And what this man's gotta do is bring you unique and genuine made in America products...and that includes one of my newest items, the John Wayne Edition Flask!


    This limited edition, beautiful flask is built the same as our copper Great American Flask (which means that it is soldiered, not welded) but enclosed in a hand-dyed, leather carrying case with integrated belt clip (which makes it perfect for taking along for trail rides--whether by foot, beast or bicycle!) The distinctive copper chain and authentic American birch stopper tell you that this flask means business--just like ol' Rooster Cogburn himself.


    In a few weeks, the motion picture stars and producers will gather at the 86th annual Academy Awards to recognize the best in the movie biz. Well, I reckon this flask oughta receive its own award, partner. A Jacob Bromwell exclusive, this flask is only available on my site. To learn more and to order your own, just click here.
