What are backyard parties without a beer? A cold beer.
If like to drink beer slowly, but still want to have it cold as long as possible, there are few simple solutions.
Some call them bottle coolers, beer jackets, or koozies, but they all serve one purpose – to insulate a chilled beverage from warming by air or sun. They are extremely portable, versatile in use, and comes in a variety of designs and price ranges. Every drinker can find one that definitely fits his bottle cooling needs.
As with all products, there are awesome beer coolers, and once you shouldn’t waste your money. Here are (according to us) the best beer coolers, can holders and koozies of 2021.
In a hurry? Here are our best beer bottle cooler picks:
Asobu Frosty Beer 2 Gois a fantastic three-piece koozie. Made of vacuum-insulated double-walled stainless steel, the bottom unit is designed to hold a beer can, a middle unit that covers the to part of the bottle, and a top piece that is here to cover the whole beverage when you are not drinking.
A great thing about Asobu Frosty Beer 2 Go is the fact that the bottom piece can be used on its own – it doesn’t matter if you need to cool a can or bottle.
This awesome addition to theYETI Rambler family is extremely durable, well-designed, and will keep your drinks as cold as possible. TheYETI Colsteris clad in sweat-proof stainless steel walls with double wall insulation which is helping to keep your beer sheltered from the warm temperature that comes from your hands while you are drinking. It even includes a Load-and-Lock Gasket that secures your drink in place.
BevGuard technology to keep your drinks 20x colder
No Sweat Design
BrüMate Hopsulator Slimis very similar to the previous product on our list, YETI Rambler Colster, in that it keeps your beer cold until the last drop. This triple-insulated, stainless steel cooler is specially designed to fit 12-ounce slim cans. What´s more, this koozie features push-lock technology for easy can insertion and removal and an insulation system that is able to keep the beer up to 20x colder than a standard bottle sleeve.
While the slim version is designed for 12-ounce cans, there is also a version that fits both 12 oz and 16 oz cans (Hopsulator Trio) and even a version for glass bottles – Hopsulator BOTT’L.
More respectable than a traditional foam cooler, Thermos Can Insulator is able to keep a chilled beverage cold for up to 3 hours. Designed mainly for 12-ounce cans but is also capable of holding larger cans. Thermos is a double-wall vacuum insulated product, so it helps to keep the best temperature retention you can get. Thermos says it keeps your drink cold 10 times longer than if you had a naked beer can.
Most can koozies work in a similar fashion. They look like a sleeve that slips around the can. On the other hand, the RTIC can koozie has a specially designed mechanism that works as an actual cooler. In fact, the insulated stainless steel body acts like a cooler, so your beer is completely insulated for maximum cold retention, while still easily accessible from drinking.

Fits most 12-ounce aluminum cans and standard bottles
Keeps your hand from getting cold
Double-walled stainless steel
It´s hard to say which koozie is better, it´s always a matter of personal preference, but until now, we introduced the best selling can coolers on the market. And the Corkcicle Arctican definitely belongs among these best sellers. It combines a chilled gel core and can koozie into one stylish unit. It works on a simple principle.
The base on the can holder is unscrewed and should be kept in the freezer. After some time, you remove the cooling gel from the freezer and twist it back onto the holder. A simple, yet effective method to keep your drink cold for up to 3 hours.

Maintains the temperature of a cold beverage for up to 12 hours
TheOrca Rocket is a stainless steel koozie that serves the purpose of keeping your drinks cold, yet still, protect it from dropping the beverage. It fits both cans and bottles of 12-once size, has a built-in bottle opener on the bottom, and vacuum-insulated stainless steel body. According to the manufacturer, the Orca Rocket is able to maintain the temperature of a cold beverage for up to 12 hours and without outer condensation.
