How To: Chill Your Beer Instantly Using Compressed Air

Chill Your Beer Instantly Using Compressed Air

Everyone has one of those friends that just can't make good judgement calls. All of my friends happen to be like that, except for me, of course (I'm perfect). So that's why I'm never surprised when they bring back a 24-pack of warm beers, after explicitly being told to make sure to get cold ones.

And my friends don't just find warm beers; they find the warmest possible beers at the market, sitting next to the furnace or something. It's as if they found some sort of secret portal at the market and marched down directly to hell to steal the beer straight from the devil's hand.

I'm not even exaggerating or anything. It's THAT warm.

Then we have to play the awesome waiting game while we stuff the beers into the freezer and wait almost an hour to get our beers to the perfect temperature. Who in their right mind wants to wait an hour to drink?


I would rather have my beers instantly cold when they get there, but sometimes we have to make due with what we have. Thanks to Instructables user Imnopeas, you can now chill your beers in just a few minutes! All you have to do is gather the following tools:

  • Drill with 3/32" drill bit
  • Bottle of compressed air (without bitterant)
  • Duct tape
  • Plastic container
  • Beer

Put on your gloves and use the drill to make a small hole in the container where you will place the compressed air straw in to. Place the beers inside the plastic container and wrap it up with duct tape (securely). Place the air straw inside the container hole and squeeze the bottle for about a minute.

The container will rattle, but won't break open if you've placed enough duct tape around it. Now just open up the container and you've got yourself some cold brewskis!

You can also try this method involving a cold ice bath and some salt. Let us know which one works better for you or if you have any other ways to instantly chill your beers!
