How to Keep Your Beer Colder for Longer

There’s nothing better than sipping on a cold beer on a hot summer day. It’s relaxing, tasty, and refreshing all at the same time. The problem is that if you don’t drink the beer fast enough, it will quickly start to warm up and create a drink that is less than appealing. Warm beer is something no-one enjoys! So how can you make sure that your beer stays colder for longer? We’ve cracked the code and are offering up some great tips.

A Good Quality Stoneware Beer Stein

One of the best and easiest ways to keep your beverage colder for longer is to invest in a high-quality beer stein made of stoneware. Stoneware and pottery are known for being the absolute best choice for keeping liquids cold. They do a better job than metals and glass. Stoneware tends to be pretty hardy too, allowing you to get many years of use out of it.

Make an Outdoor Cooler

You don’t have to invest in anything fancy for this tip to work, all you need to do is create an outdoor cooler that is filled with ice. While the big coolers are great for storing unopened bottles/cans of beer, once you have opened them you can’t exactly put them back in the cooler. Instead you may want to pick up a few small buckets.

Your coolers can be made of metal or even pottery such as a flower pot. You’ll want to pass on anything plastic as it won’t hold the cold for long. The idea is that each person will have their own individual cooler. Place ice in the bucket, but don’t overfill it. You want just enough to cover the bottom 1/3 of the bucket. You can then place your beer can or bottle in the bucket each time you finish taking a sip.

Use Insulated Drink Holders

There are a number of drink holders on the market that insulate your beverage, keeping it colder for longer. It can be a sleeve, a cup or bottle holder, or a cup/mug that you pour your beverage into. Often these holders need to be stored in the freezer in advance so they get cold enough. It’s a good idea to have a few spares on hand so as one starts to warm up you can trade it for another in the freezer.

Get a Hand from Nature

While this tip isn’t as effective, getting a hand from nature can sometimes be a great tip. This could mean storing your beer outdoors during the winter, which is often more cold than a fridge. Your beer will have a colder starting temperature, therefore you may be able to get through it before it warms up. Rivers and streams can also make for a wonderful way to keep beer cold when camping. And of course, whenever possible you want to keep your beer in the shade.

Enjoy a Cold Brew

These tips are sure to help you enjoy that cold brew a little easier and for longer, even on those hot summer days.
