Summertime is approaching, and everyone's favorite activity abounds: that's right—drinking on patios. Because this is a such a beloved activity, companies are falling all over themselves to create products that make the experience even better. The newest product is the Chillsner ($30 for a set of 2, Uncommon Goods), which is essentially a freezable tube that you insert into your beer that will chill it from the inside. The Chillsner's design allows you to drink from the bottle while it's cooling the bottle down. That's all well and good, but some minimal planning would negate this situation. How hard is it to pick up some cold beer?
Here are the scenarios in which you would need a Chillsner:
1. You're not a borderline alcoholic and you don't have beer constantly chilling in your fridge.
2. You live in an alternate universe where no stores sell already chilled beer.
3. You are a slow, slow, s-l-o-w drinker and by the time you get through a measly 12 oz bottle, it's already lukewarm.
Cheers, I guess.
