How To: Keep beer cold

Keep beer cold

If your beer seems too warm, you could always drink it faster! Or, you could keep it cold longer with these tricks.
You Will Need
* A foam beer cozy
* Styrofoam
* Aluminum foil
* Wet socks
* Rope
* A tree branch
* A tent

Step 1
Keep your hands off the beer can or bottle as much as possible to prevent your body heat from warming it up.

Step 2
Use a foam beer cozy that's at least a half-inch thick. Choose a light color; dark colors absorb more heat.

Like to knit? Make a wool cozy; it works almost as well as a foam one.

Step 3
If you've got a block of Styrofoam, stick your can or bottle into it. Testers found that this keeps beer cool even better than a cozy.

Step 4
No Styrofoam or cozy available? Wrap your beer in some aluminum foil.

Step 5
Keep beer cool at a campsite by sticking each can in a wet sock and using rope to tie it to a tree branch. The combination of wind and wetness will keep them cold until you're ready to pop one.

Step 6
You can also dig a shallow hole in the ground in a corner of your tent, and shove some cans into it. The shaded ground will keep your beer cool.

Fact: Draft beer is usually around 38 degrees Fahrenheit, refrigerated beer is around 35 degrees, and beer from an ice chest can dip down to 32 degrees.
