This is great for someone who has no refrigeration, or doesn't know how to make ice. Spoiler alert: ice is what happens when it gets too cold.

It's just like the product in a water bottle that freezes first.  But it's just ment to open a beer, sip down a little. Drop this vented cap so the 'Corkcicle Chillsner' keeps the beer cold.  But it foams the crap out of your beer.

I always thought those things looked and sounded like a stupid idea. Many of the "products" on the market are depressing. It's stupid, greedy people trying to make a buck off of other stupid people. Ah, capitalism, ain't it neat? And whenever I hear or read the word "Product", like in a review or something on Amazon, I get that same thought in my head about stupid, greedy people trying to make a buck off of other stupid people. Bit of a cynical viewpoint, I guess...

Its amazing... like Coors thinking their customers are to dumb to chill their own beer so they change their labels to help them figure it out.  It's ridiculous

My mom gave me one of those last year. It's the thought that counts, I guess.

Well, it's no 5.2 stabilizer. Pretty horrendous, though.   :)

Someone gave me one last year. Totally foams up the beer. Leaves you with following choices: drink half a cold beer right away and lose other half, drink warmer than optimal right away, put beer in fridge and drink later, have foresight to keep beer at serving temperature.

Right! It was so bad, as soon as I unwrapped it, she brought me one she bought for my dad and wanted me to try it out!  I didn't have the heart to tell her I really didn't want anything to penetrate my beer before I enjoy it, but you can guess how that went.

Can't tell if he has a man bun - I'll assume he does until I see otherwise.   :)
