It is summer time which means we will all be ripping the covers off of our barbecue’s and getting a lot of man meat going on the grill (yep, we know exactly how that sounded). While the warmer weather is awesome and we love this time of the year, we realize that the heat can sometimes mean our beer isn’t as cold as it should be. A few minutes in the scorching sun and even a Miller Lite doesn’t taste great. While there will be several coolers we feature over the next few weeks, sometimes it is too much to try and throw together a whole cooler. We want something simple and easy to use that doesn’t create a huge mess.
Chillsner is a new gadget we found that screams simplicity but is so innovative that we had to feature it. There have been some different chilling icicles that we have seen meant for wine bottles but haven’t seen anything for the everyday beer drinker until we stumbled across the Chillsner. The concept is simple with a simple screw top that fits to most standard bottles with a frozen “stick” that goes down into the beer. It becomes an ice cube for your drink without actually having any water or condensation come off that might compromise the taste of your beer.
The part we really liked about the Chillsner is you are able to actually use a drink through feature that funnels beer through the icicle allowing water to be instantly chilled as it goes down your gullet. The reason this is awesome is we all know how the plastic ice cubes people try to convince us of getting for our whiskey take to actually cool the drink down. This feature creates an ice luge for the beer to run down allowing for the perfect chilly temperature every time.
