Psst … Over here. Yeah, you. You’re a beer snob too, huh? Have you attempted to take glassware on vacation just for drinking beer? Me too. It didn’t work out so well, did it? Does the thought of drinking a Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA from the bottle send chills down your spine? I understand.

Looking for a true American summer beer to drink this Fourth of July?
You don’t need to seek the oldest beer in America or the largest brewery. You don’t need to find a beer named “Capt’n Merica” with a red, white, and blue label motif. Nor should you seek a beer brewed with bald eagle feathers as the most American summer beer.

Yeti started constructing wicked tough coolers in 2006. In years prior, I speculate they built Army tanks. Both the Yeti Rambler Tumbler and the Rambler Colster are practically bullet proof (although I am not prepared to test that theory) and reliably keep beverages cold throughout the blazing hot summer.
