The fine print
At ThirstBat, we know how much fun can be had over a few beers. But we're also mindful of the risks - heavy drinking can lead to illness, injury, or something much worse.
When using ThirstBat, you must always take care to drink responsibly. Never drink more than you can handle, and always stay safe when you are under the influence of alcohol. We do not promote binge drinking in any way, shape or form.
All of our products are meant for recreational use and do not require the consumption of alcohol in order to function. A thirst can be suitably smashed with simply ice cold water or a sports drink! We are therefore in no way responsible for any over-consumption of alcohol while using ThirstBat. Anyone consuming alcohol with a ThirstBat does so with the understanding that he or she is solely responsible for the amount consumed, and does so at his or her own risk.
Also, don't ever consume spirits via a ThirstBat! The alcohol content of spirits is far higher than that of beer. There's a reason for why we don't call it a vodka bong!
