What's in the Box?!

Whether you call it a chilly bin, esky, ice chest, icebox, or just a plain old cooler, we decided you probably should have the right tools for the right moments.

It’s mid-July, and there’s a terrifying plague of warm drinks out there.


In the sweltering heat of mid-summer, everyone knows a warm beverage just ain’t gonna cut it. So we created a list of coolers, each created to be a tool to end the warm beer pandemic.


Park hang? Beach day? Aprés hike? Concert tailgate? No problem. Whatever you’re up to for the rest of the summer, there’s a cooler for that.


One more question to answer: What’s the damn point of a cooler if you don’t have the right beverage to put in it?


Not to fear... Thanks to high-level intel from our friends over at Sierra Nevada, we’re able to hook you up with the optimal beer for each cooler on the list, all available for purchase on the Handoff app.


Beverages inbound... Cold ones 🥶


Titan Deep Freeze Backpack Cooler

Holds 24 12 oz. cans. Pack in. Pack out. Designed for you to bring your drinks to the far reaches of the wilderness. Fair warning, the farther you go, the heavier this backpack feels, so be sure not to bite off more than you can chew when you’re schlepping beers with this big bad bag.

This astonishingly practical mechanism is built to impress (and indulge).


A Big Beer for Big Chillin: Sierra Nevada Big Little Thing Imperial IPA


Yeti Roadie Hard Cooler

Holds 18 12 oz. cans. Perfect for car camping, an aprés hike tailgate, or posting up for any sort of riverside activity. It’s a cooler designed to move as you move. Simple, mobile, and just the right amount of space for drinks for you and a few friends.


Rockets for Your Roadie: Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA


Crazy Coolers Motorized Cooler

Aptly named, the craziness of this chilly bin is unrivaled. Attached to a 4-wheel scooter, this is your ride or die cooler, with you wherever you need to go (likely just short distances).


Some Wild to go with your Crazy: Sierra Nevada Wild Little Thing Slightly Sour Ale


Igloo Trailmate Journey

Holy Guacamole… this is the real deal right here. An all terrain cooler complete with wheels, cupholders, a serving tray, a mobile device stand… This is the most practical way for you to comfortably get your beers to the far reaches of the world. Climb a volcano and this sucker will keep your beer cold in the face of boiling hot magma… In case you couldn’t tell, this is the Handoff Team’s frontrunner.


Trailmate Tailgate Beers: Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Thing IPA


Igloo Quick and Cool


150 Quarts… holds roughly 248 12 oz cans. This is the Big honker, big kahuna, big cheese, ideal cooler for hosting big events and it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than buying an extra fridge. It’s gonna take a lot to fill this puppy up... Because this puppy is a great dane.


248 Beers to fill the space: Sierra Nevada 12-Pack Sampler (you’re gonna need 20.66666 sampler packs to fill this thing.. Don’t worry about carrying them. We’ll just bring 'em over 😉 )



Big shoutout to Sierra Nevada for making all of the ideal beers for any situation. Summer days present a lot of cool situations… but you can make ‘em cooler with, well... a cooler 🧊


Pick your box, and we’re always more than happy to fill it up. Stay cool, y’all!
