Buyer’s Guide: Best Beer Mugs for the Freezer

Freezable beer mugs keep your beer as cool as possible for as long as possible. However, not all mugs work in the same manner. While some simply offer better insulation, others have freezing gel or other substance that substitutes for ice.

Another main difference in freezer mugs or chillers is the material. The most common ones are glass, steel, and acrylic. Let’s see if the material makes a difference in how efficient your freezer mug is.

Glass: Beer mugs or steins made of glass have a classy, traditional look that many people love. While its stylish, glass doesn’t keep the beer cold for too long. However, there are some mugs made of thicker, quality glass, which can offer better insulation. If you are someone who chugs down a pint in a minute, glass is a good option.

Stainless Steel: Stainless steel is the modern alternative to glass. It looks sleek, stylish, yet rugged at the same time. Most SS steins are double-walled for insulation and can keep your beer cold for hours. The best part is that these mugs are perfect for hot beverages as well

Acrylic:  The best thing about the acrylic mug is that they can look exactly like traditional glass mugs. They are sturdier, and with the double-wall design, they can keep your beer cold for a long time. However, not all acrylic beer mugs have double walls and freezer gel. Also, unlike glass, acrylic will lose its shine and luster over time.

FAQs: Best Beer Mugs for the Freezer

What is the best temperature for beer?

Experts believe that there is a perfect temperature for every type of beer. For starters, premium lagers are best served at 42 degrees, ales around 44 degrees, while British beers are preferable at 55 degrees.

Why does beer taste bad after it gets warm?

Heat can expedite the process of oxidation. While some beers develop a stale flavor after oxidation, others can get too sweet and malty at a warmer temperature.

Is warm beer more potent?

Warm beer isn’t exactly more potent, but the myth about people getting more drunk on warm beer isn’t entirely wrong. Warm alcoholic beverages do absorb into the bloodstream faster than colder ones do.

Can you drink beer with ice?

There is no potential harm in putting ice in beer. However, most people do not like the watered-down taste of beer after adding ice. Therefore, it is ideal for serving beer in a mug that doesn’t let it get warm too quickly.
