The Corkcicle Will Rescue You From Warm Beer and Wine

Few things are worse than trying to reward yourself with a cold beer at the end of a long day, only to find all your beer is warm. It’s a problem that has plagued mankind for centuries, but thanks to good ol’ American ingenuity, Corkcicle is the solution for chilling brews—and chilling/maintaining wine temps—in a pinch.

For beer enthusiasts, there’s the Chillsner, Corkcicle’s vented stainless steel icicle. Chillsner (Best name? Best name.) slips into beers, forms an air-tight seal, and has drink-through vents that let you sip cold, crisp libations directly from the bottle without spilling a drop. Filled with a special cooling gel, the Chillsner reaches peak chill after just 45 minutes in the freezer.

If wine’s more your taste, the original Corkcicle is like Goldilocks' magic wand (just go with it). Corkcicle keeps reds cellar-cool and whites icy cold without the need for an ice bucket. For reds, leave your Corkcicle in the bottle for 15 minutes for a pour that’s a smidge below room temperature—perfect. If you’re drinking white, serve the first glass and pop a Corkcicle in the bottle to keep it at juuust the right temperature.

Both the Chillsner and Corkcicle are of course totally reusable. Give ‘em a quick rinse and pop ‘em in the freezer for the next time you're craving a cold one.
