These Beer Koozies Keep Drinks Cold for Hours

Liquor / Chloe Jeong

If you’ve ever sipped a beer outdoors, you know that with beautiful weather comes warm beers. A great cooler will help with this problem, but a koozie has long been the ultimate cure to keeping your drink cool at all times. Whether you’re sipping beer, cider, wine, soda, or hard seltzer, a new wave of excellent, high-tech beer koozies is here to keep your beer frosty for up to 24 hours. 

These stellar drink holders are designed to fit beer cans, beer bottles, and skinny seltzers, with sweatproof construction to keep your hands dry and condensation at bay. The best of them feature double-walled insulation and an attractive design to keep drinks chilled for hours. Some versions even feature a built-in beer opener.

Whether you’re looking for a high-quality koozie to gift to your favorite suds lover or just an excellent option for your own imbibing needs, here are the best-designed beer koozies available right now. 

Best Overall: YETI Rambler 12 oz. Colster Can Insulator

Tailgates, patio drinks, camping and beyond: a koozie is a Southern drinking staple for a reason. These options will keep drinks frigid, regardless of the surrounding temperature or the heat of your hand. 

The YETI Rambler is one of the most durable options on the market, thanks to thick-gauge steel and a double-walled vacuum. Outfitted with a load-and-lock gasket, all you need to do to remove and replace a bottle is to turn the gasket a quarter-turn. To clean the koozie, simply pop it in the dishwasher.

This koozie holds everything from standard 12-ounce cans and longneck bottles. Depending on your drink of choice, this particular option also comes in 16-ounces and 12-ounce slim (think White Claws) options. Every sip tastes like you’ve just pulled your drink from the fridge—One review promises “If you lose this with a beer in it, whenever you find it, that beer will be cold.”

Best for Bottles: BrüMate Hopsulator BOTT'L Cooler

BrüMate Hopsulator BOTT'L Double-walled Stainless Steel Insulated Bottle Cooler

BrüMate produces some of the best drink coolers on the market (their insulated flasks are particularly excellent). 

The durable stainless steel in the BrüMate Hopsulator BOTT'L Cooler plays double duty: keeping the temperature consistent while protecting glass bottles from shattering. An innovative double-walled stainless steel construction with a layer of copper in between (copper is known for being excellent at retaining cold temperatures) keeps the drink 20 times colder than a standard neoprene koozie. The insulator perfectly wraps around the body of the bottle and keeps drinks ice-cold without condensation forming on the outside.

To use it, simply unscrew the gasket at the top and pull out the bottle. Two different gaskets are included in each kit and between the two, this koozie will fit all standard bottles.

Best for Cans: TahoeBay 12 Blank Beer Can Coolers

TahoeBay 12 Blank Beer Can Coolers

This breezy koozie set is most similar to the easy-going koozies seen at barbecues and sports games. They come in every color imaginable (including patterns and a variety of pastels) and boast absolutely no brands or tags, meaning, with a little creative effort, you can add your own design via screen printing or fabric markers.

Made with scuba-knit polyester, these koozies are excellent to have on hand for every occasion—for when friends drop over or you are hosting for a crowd. The beer koozies come in sets of 12, 25, 100, 200...up to 1000: pick up a big set for the next event, or for a restaurant or bar. Custom print them with a logo or statement and let guests take them home as a petite souvenir.

Best Combo: BrüMate HOPSULATOR TRíO

Looking for a koozie that holds whatever drink you’re in the mood for? BrüMate's three-in-one can cooler is designed to fit cans of all sizes, including 12-ounce and 16-ounce drinks. Regardless of how cold your beverage is, the smart design will keep the exterior of the cooler bone-dry. To change out a can, just unscrew the gasket, replace it with a new drink, and a push-lock technology will secure the beverage. Though this koozie does hold 16-ounce cans, it’s slim enough to fit neatly in standard cup holders. 

If you don’t feel like placing the can inside the cooler, the Hopsulator doubles as a pint glass, complete with a lid for sipping from. A non-slip base on the bottom keeps drinks in place. Beer aside, the Hopsulator will also insulate both cold and hot beverages—think tea, coffee, and hot toddies.

Best Design: Asobu Frosty Beer 2 Go Can Cooler with Beer Opener

Asobu Frosty Beer 2 Go Vacuum Insulated Double Walled Stainless Steel Beer Bottle and Can Cooler with Beer Opener

Asobu’s high-tech option is easily one of the most impressive on the market. Not only does the vacuum-sealed unit keep bottles frosty for up to six hours, but the unit completely wraps around the entire bottle—right up to the lip of the bottle—for maximum chill. The Asobu chiller fits all standard-sized bottles.

If a canned beer is more your style, simply unhinge the top half of the unit and the bottle neck chiller pops right off—perfect for housing standard-size aluminum cans. To top it all off, the lid is fitted with a built-in bottle opener for cracking open bottles on the go.

Best Insulated: RTIC Tall Can Cooler

For fans of craft beers, if you’re going to spend the extra money on great beer, you want a beer koozie to keep the beer at an ideal sipping temperature. Consistently one of the top-rated beer koozies on the market, RTIC’s heavy-duty beer koozie is built to last. Stainless-steel, double-walled vacuum-insulated, with locking gasket seals for maximum temperature retention to keep the cold in. 

That said, it’s uber-easy to clean—just rinse and place it in the dishwasher. Note these are a bit thicker than most koozies, so your drink may have a tough time fitting in cup holders. This particular option is designed for larger, 16-ounce cans though RTIC also makes smaller options for beers and 12-ounce cans.

These customizable koozies are a particularly excellent call for bachelorettes parties, wedding parties, and events you’d like to remember.

A patent-pending flexible gripper holds bottles and cans securely in the insulator, while a bottom pad on the cooler protects the unit from slipping or sliding, curbing the potential to spill your drink.

Best Budget: Sunkey Neoprene Beer Bottle Sleeve Cover

Need a low-key beer koozie for you and a crew? This set of six beer bottle koozies features a neoprene sleeve that unzips to hug your beer bottle and keep it cool. Waterproof, insulated, dirt-resistant and stretchy, it’s a low-effort, high-performing take on a koozie. 

Far lighter than other options, these koozies look to heavy-duty neoprene (the same material that keeps divers warm in the deep sea) to protect bottles from warming up. The low-maintenance options can be thrown in the washing machine to clean and fold flat for easy storage. At just a few dollars each, they are perfect for vacations, parties, or places you don’t mind losing a koozie. Just because these are affordable options, the koozies are still constructed with premium neoprene, strong stitching, and durable construction.
