Cool Beer Koozies
Koozies. Cozies. Coozies. Whatever you you like to call ‘em. They all perform the same function, and that’s keeping your beer cold. For years we didn’t know if beer koozies actually helped keep our beverage cold, or if it was just another marketing ploy to make money. So do koozies keep beer cold? Thankfully in 2013 the fine gentlemen of the University of Washington in Seattle decided to put some real science behind it, thoroughly testing koozies. The end result. Yes, these things do work. Oddly enough, it’s the fact that they help prevent condensation from building on the outside of the can that is the real selling point versus actually keeping your booze insulated. Regardless of how beer koozies work, they do work. These things have become our best friends for tailgating, backyard parties, beach outings, and just about every situation that requires a beer in hand. There’ s a lot of choices out there when it comes to koozies, so naturally we decided to showcase 15 cool koozies that you can purchase right now.
