Do you enjoy drinking beverages out of glass bottles? Me too..but more often than not when out in a public setting there is a sign that says no glass containers. This isn’t a problem now and let me tell you how I can once again enjoy using glass bottles with my Icy Bev Kooler.

The Icy Bev Kooler is a Stainless Steel Bottle that is designed to fit over glass bottles and keep them cooler longer. The Bev Kooler also protect the glass bottle from breaking.
Being one that usually has an insulated bottle or canister in my hand, I was pretty excited to give the Icy Bev Kooler a try.
The concept of the product is awesome. If you enjoy your beverages from a glass container, there are a lot of places that you can’t take them with you, like around the pool deck. Glass bottles also sweat and do not keep your beverage cool for long. NOT to mention once opened, any carbonated beverage starts to go flat right away.
When I received the Koolers it took a little trial and error (mostly user error) to figure out how they worked. The top screws off and has a rubber piece inside it. Make sure to remove that piece and flip it around it is needs to be inserted in your glass bottle once it is placed inside the Kooler.
Then remove the bottom of the unit by unscrewing it and removing the paperwork (this is the point that the user error dropped dramatically! Inside the Kooler is a neoprene liner that is removable (and I recommend removing it and washing in hot soapy water and allowing to dry before using as it smells…like a neoprene liner). I also remove the liner when storing the Koolers so it can air out between uses.
Setting up the Koolers requires the neoprene liner to be inserted inside before you place the Kooler over your glass bottle. Note: the liner can be a bit tricky to get inside the Kooler and pressed along the outside walls enough to allow your bottle to be inserted. It will be snug but the liner does “give” somewhat to allow the glass bottle to slide into the Kooler. My suggestion is to NOT open your glass bottle until you have it inside the Kooler.
At this point you can open your bottle and insert the rubber stopper that comes inside the lid. This will keep your beverage sealed until ready to enjoy.
The Icy Bev Kooler doesn’t fit all bottles (glass or plastic) so you will need to try them out to make sure they will work with your beverage of choice. I found they fit most of the taller and thinner bottles quite well.
The top includes a bottle opener and loop which can be attached to your belt or backpack.
These would make a great gift for someone that prefers uses glass bottles and needs to be mindful of their surroundings. Several of ours ended up on the boat with the crew, which is the perfect place to use them. My favorite use is when I am outside in the yard or by the pool as it keeps my beverage cool and I don’t have to be bothered by those pesky little bugs that like to find their way into open containers.
Grand Fusion Housewares sells the Icy Bev Koolers (and a large line of other cool things to help you organize your life) on Amazon. They are available in several colors. They can also be personalized by adding a sticker or logo of your favorite team, band, or name of your company.
