Next to an empty cup, there’s nothing worse than a warm beer. It’s an all too familiar hardship that affects everyone, especially during these hot summer months. Short of ruining your brew with an iced cube or constantly sticking it in the cooler, there’s not much you can do to keep things cool. But some geniuses over on the other side of the world might be answering our cold beer prayers.
Japanese beer company Kirin Ichiban recently debuted their Beer Slushy Maker. Yes, you read that right. Before you get too excited, we’re not going to be drinking beer slushies any time soon. What the new at home contraption actually does is freeze beer into foam to top off your glass. Basically, you’re using frozen beer to keep your drink cold. And the best part: once that frozen beer melts, it just adds more beer to your glass. It’s a win, win.
Apparently, the Beer Slushy Maker can keep your beer cold for up to thirty minutes. If it takes you any longer than a half hour to drink a beer, you need to reevaluate.
