We're all on the hunt for outdoor products that are going to enhance our experiences, and beer gear is no exception. On a recent 90-degree day in sunny Colorado, I drank beer from eight different vessels (with help from a few friends) designed to keep my beer ice-cold and therefore, make drinking beer outdoors as pleasant of an experience as it should be.
Each beer started at 38 degrees (with the exception of two bottles tested). I took the temperature of the beer after 30 minutes to see how each was fairing in the heat of my backyard. I used beer from Upslope Brewing since it's made to be enjoyed outdoors and I used a standard beer thermometer from my local brewery and homebrew supply store, Brewmented.
Find out how each brand performed and what features each has to offer.
