Summer Requi-beer-ments

How terrible is that pun? Awful.

Kevin here with my second BEerCRAFTY article. Thanks to all for checking out my post on the White House brewing!

Summer is here and the beer is cold. Cans, bottles, growlers, bombers, whatever… it’s time to enjoy at the park, in the backyard, at the beach, on the course, or at the game. After enjoying some BBQ, beers, corn hole, and Kan Jam a few weeks back at a Mets game tailgate, I’ve decided to put together a list of my Summer Beer Essentials. Enjoy!

Summer Beer Essentials

3) Reef Fanning Flip Flops

Flip Flop

Okay, yeah. I know this doesn’t sound like a beer essential but it definitely is. I’ve owned a pair or two of these flip flops since 2006. Not only are they extremely comfortable, they have a bottle opener on the bottom! If you forget about carrying around an opener on your keys or in your wallet, you have one on you at all times. Never have an issue getting that bottle opened again. Snag a pair at your local shoe store or on

2) Coolest Cooler

Coolest Cooler

The Coolest Cooler was a massive hit on Kickstarter and they are filling orders this month! Not only does the Coolest keep your beer ice cold, it has a bluetooth speaker, a blender, a USB charger and more. You are truly set to have the best summer experience possible with one of these. Check them out here!

1) Spin Chill

Spin Chill

The Spin Chill may be one of the most interesting beer gadgets I’ve seen. The Spin Chill gets your drink cold within minutes and can handle both cans and bottles. Forget to put your beers in the cooler before you went out? No longer a problem. The Spin Chill also guarantees no foam or exploding beers. They put the science of how it works right on their site. The creators of the Spin Chill, Ty and Trevor, exclaim that “we don’t drink warm beer in America” and #WarmBeerSucks. We tend to agree. Pick up a Spin Chill for your next outing here.
