Forget stuffed animals, claw your way to a beer

NEW YORK (CNN) – It’s a quick and cheap way to quench a thirst. You just have to be good at the game.

Ryan Schwarz has helped change the classic game of fetch, “As far as the game in general, it’s simple, it’s classic. Again, everybody is familiar with how to play it.”

So with the basics already there Ryan along with his wife Laura and friend J.R. started to think. “We just started talking about different ideas of what would be a little more fun than the usual stuffed animal,” said Laura Schwarz.

Laura was about to grab on to an idea clearly outside the box. The three worked on a prototype and found a company in New Jersey to give them a hand in having it built.

The game is pretty much the same, you put a buck or two in and work your magic trying to pick up one of the 38 bottles.

“Everyone is competitive to a certain degree whether they want to admit it or not and this brings out the best in people I think,” Ryan continued.

The three are a little surprised no one has latched on to this idea already, after all, the game has been around for decades. Ryan said, “And so many inventions I see and I’m like, gosh – why didn’t we think of that?”

Only this time they did think it, held on, and got their prize. “So many great ideas never come to life because people just aren’t willing to take that leap of faith. And we just said, you know, if it failed at least we had fun and at the very least we each have a Brew Buckit in our basement,” said Ryan.
