We previously looked at the best mini kegerators, in this article we are going to cover something similar but different: our choice of the best beer bottle coolers available today – we’re all about the frosty this month!
The Best Beer Bottle Coolers
When choosing the best beer bottle cooler you have a staggering amount of good – and not-so-good – products to pick from. Here at Mixstik we aim to help you purchase the right cooler for you first time! We want you to feel your choice is money well-spent with many years of hassle-free use ahead.
Whether you call them coolers or koozies, this article features products we are happy to recommend and use ourselves.
BrüMate Hopsulator Slim Double-walled can cooler
We love BrüMate’s stainless steel insulated can coolers. These take 12 oz slim cans and come in an impressive array of eye-catching colours and finishes. These have an advantage over neoprene coolers in that they can keep your chilled beverage colder for up to 20 times longer. The BrüMate has a neat feature of a push-lock gasket mechanism which makes using this a child’s play. All you do is push your chosen slim can (not the Heineken ones) into the cooler and you’re done. When you want to remove it you just twist the gasket to release it.
The BrüMate succeeds in keeping your hands dry and your furniture free from condensation rings thanks to its impressive insulation
Play Platoon Neoprene Bottle Coolers (set of six)
Many beer bottle coolers can be accused of looking a bit same-y. Well, with the Play Platoon’s neoprene coolers you will really stand out! At the budget end of the scale, you still get a lot for your money. First off, this set includes six different, super-bright bottle coolers which look awesome. In the pack you will receive a red, orange, yellow green, blue and purple koozie. They are made of the same material that is used in swimsuits and you get all the benefits. The extra-thick 3 mm neoprene is a great insulator, keeping your beer cold and keeping your hand dry; no sweaty, slippery bottle to hold. The material has impact absorption too so these bottle coolers which offers you the benefit of some protection against breakages.
With a bottle inside, the cooler is stable so you don’t need to worry about it toppling over like some cheaper brands have a habit of doing. They can even be printed on, making them ideal for prizes, special occasions, branding and companies. We also like how Play Platoon offer a lifetime replacement warranty where they will replace a cooler should it become faulty.
OMMO Beer Bottle Cooler (stainless steel)
OMMO’s stainless steel, double-insulated beer bottle holders use a BPA-free neoprene inner and padded base for cushioning and longer-lasting cooling. The neck of the vessel fits bottles up to 12 oz. So, if you’re a Coors, Heineken or Stella Artois drinker this will be an ideal fit for them. We’ve found that the lining does a great job of supporting bottles so they don’t rattle inside the metal housing.
The eye-catching bonus with this cooler is the fantastic metal bottle opener. It looks like a laser-cut ace of spades which uses integral prongs to pop tops off with ease.
In the field – or on a picnic to be exact – the OMMO does a good job of keeping your beer ice-cold. It even manages to work in direct sunlight for a short time as the stainless steel reflects a lot of the sun’s warmth. The cooler is dry to the touch, no condensation builds up on the exterior thanks to the insulating properties of the neoprene.
The OMMO uses a three-section screw system which makes inserting the bottle and securing it inside a breeze. It also allows for easy disassembly and cleaning. It’s dishwasher-safe too into the bargain.
OMMO offers a 24-month guarantee, a 30-day money back or return, and aftersales support within 2 hours. For this reason and its stay-cool duration, classy appearance and its build quality we recommend this product.
Find Funny Gift Ideas American flag bottle cooler (stainless steel)
For the patriotic American, this could be the koozie for you. This stainless steel bottle cooler features a well-applied print of the Stars and Stripes which gives us tingly feelings every time we use it. This cooler measures 10.5” x 2.5” and accepts most 12 oz bottles of your favorite beer.
It uses a neoprene liner for the all-important padding and insulation. The food-grade stainless steel shell is robust and offers enough security for your bottle to shrug off all but the most damaging dings and dents. It’s not as good as the OMMO in direct sunlight because of the darker finish but it still performs similarly in the shade or in a bag. The twist top works well, giving a reliable seal time after time. It comes with a standard bottle opener too which clips to the lid and here you also have an eye you can feed a belt cord through for ease of carrying.
We like to use these when at the beach or in deep countryside; there’s something comforting about a hiking trip where you still carry a link back to ‘civilization’.
North Heart 2-in-1 Beer Bottle and Can cooler (stainless steel)
The North Heart cooler looks stunning, it really is a great design, boasting a nicely tactile finish and a beautiful minimalist logo. As with all our choices we don’t just select a cooler on one aspect alone. The North Heart performs well, keeping beer ice-cold for hours. This is due to a combination of double-walled stainless-steel and a vacuum seal for good measure. A rubber gasket in the neck holds your bottle tightly and more securely than neoprene alone because of the wide range of different sizes out there. The textured outer gives you a comfortable and sure grip; it also resists condensation owing to its superior insulation.

The North Heart’s party piece is that it splits midway so you can use it as a beer or a soda can coozie too. The overall size of the cooler is well-though-out too, it fits snugly into everyday cup-holders.
Asobu Frosty Beer 2 Go (stainless steel)
Asobu’s cooler is another premium product, and one which comes in six different designs. All have the matt black silicone top half but the lower half gives you the option of metallic silver, black, copper, stainless steel, a cheetah print or one bearing the Stars and Stripes. No matter which version you settle on, they all keep your beer frosty for many hours; the double stainless-steel wall and vacuum seal see to that.
This cooler splits like the North Heart model, allowing you to use it for beer and soda cans too. Its rubber gasket supports whichever bottle you prefer, whether Heineken, Bud Light or Corona Extra. Its silicone cap houses a strong metal bottle opener – a true all-in-one product!
LionRox Chillax12 Beer Bottle cooler (stainless steel)
Design and substance continue to abound with the Chillax12 from LionRox. Let’s take its appearance first and it is certainly a looker; the powder-coated finish gives it its premium flare. It is available in six stylish colors: blush pink, daffodil yellow, navy blue, glacier white, graphite, and jet black. We do like a bit of color in our koozies. The Chillax12 build quality and attention to detail is topnotch too. As with other premium coolers in our list it features double-walled stainless steel but with copper coatings for that extra insulation. It’s little wonder as this product was designed in Australia, a nation who love their beer cold. As with all the coolers we recommend, this doesn’t have condensation build up either so your hand stays dry and your grip is solid.
The LionRox is our third cooler that can split to serve as a can koozie too. It accommodates the majority of cans and also most bottles too. The range of vessels you can use this for helps make this a great cooler to take on your trips out no matter the heat.
Amayza Original Beer Bottle Insulator and Cooler (copper)
Our last cooler in our article for best bottle coolers is this amazing Amayza. What can we say about this that hasn’t already been said about our other choices in the premium bracket? Well let’s cover the basics first: We get a three-way splitting vessel for bottles and cans, a double-walled stainless-steel housing with a vacuum seal, and a high-grade black powder-coated finish. Amayza is also one of the first companies with this kind of koozies on the shelves. The powder coating is resistant to damage and we think these coolers will last you a long time before showing signs of wear.
You get a bottle opener bundled with the Amayza and it’s attached through the cap by a handy keyring.
Everything about the Amayza shouts quality and class. If you carry one of these you will receive admiring glances for those in the know and you’ll also benefit from having one of the coldest beers around when out and about.
We know you want to buy only the best beer bottle cooler and, we’re confident that you’ll find just that in this article. Whether you want best value for money for occasional usage or for great quality for life you can find it all here.
