Summer is almost upon us. And just as your skin needs that extra layer of sunblock to shield it from the sun’s heat, your beer too, needs some added protection so it can retain its taste. After all, there’s really nothing worse than cracking open a cold one on a hot day by the beach, only to realise it smells like a musty basement or even worse, tastes like wet cardboard.
Luckily, it’s 2020, and there’s a solution for pretty much everything these days. Enter Alexander Nicolazzi, a craft enthusiast in St. Louis, Missouri who came up with the idea of creating jackets for oversized 650 / 750ml bottles of beer a.ka. “Bombers”. Made of the highest quality neoprene for maximum insulation and embellished with signature heavy-gauge gold alloy zippers, these trendy jackets promise to slash down the rate at which your drink warms up in the sun by a whopping 50 percent, thereby allowing your beer to preserve its quality. Not to mention the fact that it totally ups the “Instagrammable” quotient of your summer photos.
