The Yeti thing

Postby Niner » Sat May 27, 2017 9:24 pm

Yeti makes coolers and various drink holders. In my part of the country they are very popular and kind of a in the know fad. The ice chests they make are good and really expensive and people don't leave them in the bed of their trucks unguarded less they be stolen by fashionable thieves.
I bought a drink holder for my wife a year or so ago because she has a thing about her beer remaining ice cold long enough for her to sip it empty. I got some can beer the other day, usually I get bottles and put them in an insulated sock, but there was a special on cans and the Yeti does cans or bottles. So .. since my wife really doesn't like the holder for various reason that I don't share, I tried out the Yeti.

One thing about the Yeti is... it ain't cheap. This aluminum canister cost $25 ,although you can get them on sale on and off for less. For what I paid for it I could have gotten a case of better beer than I usually drink. But...I digress.

In any case. With a full beer it weighs in at 22 ounces. Without a beer it's about 9 ounces.

Bottom line... it keeps the beer relatively cold. The down side is the weight and that you can't tell how much you have left by lifting it. You get down toward the actual bottom and it feels like you have half a beer left. But... whatever. :bigsmile:

I still have some of these sleeves left over from living in AZ, I just keep a couple in the fridge
next to the beer. Even though they have Coors Light printed on them, I don't drink that water... :cool:
Usually it's Dos Equis Amber....... :D

My wife likes Coors Light. Like you, I think it would be cheaper to just drink water and the water would taste better.

But... what you need is a beer cozy... is that what they call them?..... that has a bottle opener on the back for those upscale beers without the screw on top. :D

Mine don't have the built in bottle opener, I just have several openers stuck to the
door of the fridge with magnets, that's where I open them...... :mrgreen:
