Two Holiday Gifts for Beer Fans
Tis the season to find a gift for your upcoming holiday party, secret Santa or Yankee swap. Santa delivered a couple neat treats my way to try out and review. Let’s see what we have!
To start, the Chillsner alone is a conversation piece. Look at it… The look alone is reason number one to pick one up for a Yankee swap. To use, you store the pack in the freezer for 45 minutes. When cold you take it out and insert it in your beer. I used a beer fresh out of the fridge and let it sit for 15 mins. It locks right into your beer and doesn’t fall out thanks to a tight seal. Just as described it keeps the beer cold. The one downside of the product is it sometimes has a metallic taste like a can does but seams to go away after the first couple sips. I’d like to try this on a warm bottle to see how long it takes to chill it. The Chillsner does the job and comes in a pack of 2 for $30 at the Corkcicle website.
I definitely recommend it for a beer fan because it is a fun product and does the job.
But what if you want to keep your beer even colder? Get a koozie. But not just any koozie, an ugly sweater koozie! I have seen these at random breweries but this one specifically came from Sam Adams. Snazzy ey? Why should you have all the fun when you can have a sweater for your beer?
