SotaStick was created by a hockey player with a broken wood hockey stick looking for a fun way to open his bottle of beer. The original SotaStick hockey stick bottle opener was created in 2015 and the brand launched in 2016. The brand name takes the “Sota” out of Minnesota and the “Stick” out of Hockey Stick. We teamed up with a group of local artists and illustrators when the brand launched in 2016 to create original artwork that is featured on our apparel and man cave artwork. Designed and screen printed by Minnesota sports fans, for Minnesota sports fans.
