Warm beer sucks. There is no way of getting around that simple fact. Keeping your can or bottle cold while tailgating is difficult especially in the early part of football season when the temperatures are quite high. Normal, neoprene coozies usually can’t cut it this time of year and you need to bring in something a bit more suited for the job.
We recently had the chance to try out the ColdKeeper Can.
The ColdKeeper Can is a double insulated personal beverage cooler that fits standard sized bottles and cans. The double wall vacuum design chills your beverage while keeping your hand dry. Holding the can in your hand will not result in any body heat transfer. Made of 18″/8″ stainless steel, the ColdKeeper Can is also durable and looks good too. Fits all standard size 12 oz. cans and bottles. Proprietary LockTight Gasket seals in the cold and keeps your beverage secure even at the most rowdy tailgate party.
(Disclaimer: We received a sample of the ColdKeeper Can free of charge. The fact this sample was provided to us for free in no way influenced our opinion of the product nor did it impact our ability to test and review the product fairly and objectively.)
We first tested out the ColdKeeper Can at home before taking it tailgating. We took two sodas out of the refrigerator which keeps things cold at 42 F. We placed one can in the ColdKeeper Can and put one out on the counter. We let them sit for an hour without opening them. The ambient air temperature in the house was 76 F.
After an hour passed, we opened both cans and inserted a digital thermometer in them. As you can see in the photos below, the one in the ColdKeeper Can was significantly colder. The can that was left out of the ColdKeeper was almost room temperature.
Later in the week, we took the ColdKeeper Can tailgating. The air temperature for the Chargers/Cardinals pre-season game was in the low 80’s with plenty of direct sunlight in the parking lot. We snapped a few photos of the ColdKeeper Can while tailgating.
After thoroughly testing the ColdKeeper Can at home and in the parking lot, it is definitely “Tailgate Approved”. Sturdy and tough yet the stainless steel design is sleek and classic. Priced at $17.99, the ColdKeeper Can is available for purchase from Amazon.
