The new Cold Cavern Beer Froster may be one of the worst ideas I’ve ever heard of! This beer freezer is designed to keep your beer “chilled to the optimal temperature”, which is apparently 24 degrees Fahrenheit. That is, of course, below freezing, so you’ll have a frosted bottle (and probably slushy beer) waiting for you at all times. If you’re the type of person who drinks “American-style light lagers” (i.e. Bud Light, Miller Light, Coors Light), then you probably like your beer almost painfully cold; if thats the case, this will be the perfect gift for you. But if you like, you know, good beers served properly, you’ll want to stick with a standard fridge, since this one will certainly freeze the flavor right out of a decent beer.
As I’m sure many readers know, the coldest a beer should be served is 40-45 degrees for lagers; which is about about standard fridge temp. Darker lagers and wheat beers should be served at around 48 degrees, and ales should be served at about 50-55 degrees (so should take those out of the fridge and let them sit for a few minutes before drinking). Belgian beers, on the other hand, should be served closer to room temperature.
If the MSRP of $1050 doesn’t scare you off, the fact that the Cold Cavern Beer Froster will ruin any decent beer you drink, and make you look like a fool (sorry if thats a little too harsh), certainly should.
