Re: The Ultimate Beer Bottle Insulator

What a shameless plug for a dumb product. This site is going down the tubes.

I recommend everyone try it once!
Is it still available in 2015?
Not that I saw... but they have a lot of new beers.

Yea the can insulators don't work for me... they don't fit snuggly around the bottle... only cans. Also, I like to keep the sun off my bottles - it only takes a minute or two of full sun to destroy the subtle taste of a good beer.

Re: The Ultimate Beer Bottle Insulator

I ordered one, so I will give you my opinion when I get it.

I did as well, although I doubt I'll end up with several. When it's hot, beer gets warm fast, and I'm not British

Re: The Ultimate Beer Bottle Insulator

I'm not much of a beer drinker but if I have one, I prefer icy cold. A good Scotch will be fine neat but vodka should be kept in the freezer

Re: The Ultimate Beer Bottle Insulator

Initially looks cool, but seems like it would eat up storage space and it doesn't fit my multiple uses rule. Shame it can't be a water bottle too. Isn't $20 rather dear for a koozie? Maybe not for you yachties, but I own a boat.

I have a couple neoprene koozies that work with 12oz bottles or cans and they take up nearly no storage space. My pint glasses are virtually indestructible.

Re: The Ultimate Beer Bottle Insulator

Looks nice, but probably won't make it to my boat. Storage, disposal, and weight limit me to cans on board. I have ordered a new Yeti Rambler though. I believe it's a stainless vacuum cup that should do a great job keeping drinks cold. The only drawback is the lid doesn't fully seal, so travel is limited. If it keeps drinks as cold as I've heard, my Tervis Tumblers days are numbered!

We have a bar area dedicated We cut down on the range of liquors we keep on board - would keep the staples such as tequila and vodka and rum all the way to appertiffs. But... that's too much. Now we just keep rum and beer, which freed up a lot of space.

So, we bought a few of those thermos brand stainless can coolers and they work very well. We use the bottle coolers to complement our can coolers. I like taking a couple of beers to the beach without having to lug the cooler and ice. Also, they are great for concealing beers during no-bottle festivals

Re: The Ultimate Beer Bottle Insulator

Mine never sits around long enough to get warm. I need larger bottles.

That one doesn't protect the bottle from sunlight as well. Also, it's more expensive.

I like being able to reseal the bottle. There are times where I have just cracked open a nice bottle of beer at the end of my work day and my wife gets back and wants to go out or whatever. Rather than waste my $12 by chugging down the beer I like to keep it on hand for later. So, you screw the top on and put it back in the fridge for a few hours.

Re: The Ultimate Beer Bottle Insulator

OK, I promised to review the thing, I got mine in the mail today.
What I was expecting was a vacuum bottle, very much like the Thermos brand can insulator I have that works excellent, put a clod can in it and ten minutes later it's not cold, indicating it's very well insualted.
What I got was a thin aluminum "bottle" with a thin piece of Neoprene in it for insulation, I mean thin, like maybe .125 at most.
And it stinks, to be fair it says it will stink and if the smell offends remove the neoprene and put it in the drier with a drier sheet.
I could live with the smell as I know like a wet suit it will dissipate, good thing to because to remove it, you would have to tear it out, it's rather well glued into the bottle.

But, and heres the rub, it doesn't work very well at all, put a cold bottle of Beer in it and it promptly starts to sweat, indicating of course that it is a poor insulator.
My belief is it's a waste of money, I didn't get what I paid for, I paid so much my expectations were high, I wanted it to be as good as the can insulator as I prefer my Beer bottled, but I'll throw this thing out.

Don't be a drama queen - they have a 100% money back guarantee. Send it back. I think they will even pay for return shipping.

Really? Mine works very well. I did a test... I used a bottled beer from my fridge going into a warm cooler. The ambient temperature was 80 degrees. I think for the 5th reading my laser thermometer was not calibrated or something. It takes me about 30 minutes to drink a beer and I usually drink IPA's so, it held the temp that is perfect for the beer I like.

Minutes - Temp (F)

0 - 38
10 - 41
20 - 45
30 - 47
40 - 45
50 - 49
60 - 50

Here is a list of the optimum temperatures for beer. If you drink light beer fast I could see why you would be unhappy:

Very Cold: 35-40 degrees
American Adjunct Lagers (“Macros”)
Malt Liquors
Light or low alcohol beers

Cold: 40-45 degrees
Pilsner
Light-bodied lagers
Kolsch
Belgian Wit
Hefeweizen
Berliner weisse
American Wheat

Cool: 45-50 degrees
American Pale Ales
Medium-bodied lagers
India Pale Ale (IPA)
Porters
Alt
Irish Stouts
Sweet Stout

Cellar Temp: 50-55 degrees
Sour Ales
Lambic/Gueuze
English Bitter
Strong Ales
Baltic Porters
Bocks
Scotch Ales
Belgian Ales
Trappist Ales
Warm: 55-60 degrees
Imperial Stouts
Belgian Quads
Belgian Strong Ales
Barley Wines
Old Ales
Dopplebock
Eisbock

Stars above,

You really are a beer enthusiast like I've never encountered!! I'd be afraid to serve you a beer on board.
