    Default eCool In-Ground Beer Cooler

    The worst thing about summer outings is the ice. Someone always forgets to bring the ice. (We need to stop inviting those people out.) And so, you're stuck with warm beer. WORST SUMMER PREDICAMENT.

    There's one innovative company that's looking to put an end to the ice dilemma once and for all. They've gone and replaced ice with dirt. The eCool In-Ground Cooler stores your drinks in the earth, using the naturally cooler temperatures below our feet to make your beverages ice cold. Here's how it works: dig a hole in the ground -- the company recommends using a garden drill, unless, as they say, you're a real man who prefers a shovel -- insert the eCool, add up to 24 cans (of beer, of course) and use the simple crank mechanism to feed cooled cans to the top and into your hands. Cold beer, no ice, pure genius.



    The eCool In-Ground cooler is eco friendly AND saves you money on ice (or electricity), but it will set you back $349. We do have a few issues with this cooler, aside from the price. One, you have to dig a hole. In the ground. That's some serious hard work for a cold drink. And two, it's not portable, which is one of our favorite qualities in a cooler. The eCool is more like a dirty refrigerator.

    But you can leave the eCool in the ground year round. And this cooler will, according to them, make the world a better place... one earth-cooled beer at a time. Yeah.

    Awesome idea but a ridiculous price. They need to drop about $300 from the price and they would sell like hot cakes (or cold beers)
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    How cold does the beer get? Looks like it would only be slightly cooled. Think I'll stick with a cooler or fridge.
