A football game has two segments to it: The tailgate and the game itself. Both are equally important, and one could argue that the tailgating aspect of it is even more significant, depending on your team's record. One common misfortune found at tailgates is the problem of running out of cold drinks and having to wait for the warm ones to cool down on the ice. Refusing to wait 20-30 minutes for their drink to cool down, Ty Parker and Trevor Abbott have developed two similar products to speed up the process
Using their engineering knowledge, the two co-founders recently started Spin Chill, "A portable, hands-free device used to chill a beer or wine (soda for youngsters) in 30-60 seconds." Whether using the Chill Bit (requires a power drill) or the Beerouette (a self-contained device), the Spin Chill system cools down the drink by "introducing convection to both the inside and outside of the container and increasing the surface area in contact with ice, increasing the rate of heat transfer by a minimum of 20 times faster." Also, a bonus to using Spin Chill is the fact that it also creates less foam, contrary to the belief that it would create more after spinning the can. The science behind it has been proved by the guys and they describe the details on their Kickstarter page.
Every tailgate party needs to have a Beerouette. Spin Chill will come in handy as you realize that all of the cold beer is gone. It has the potential of adding value to the tailgating experience. With a pending patent, it would be interesting to see if Ty and Trevor would pursue the idea of doing the complete opposite of what Spin Chill does, warming up cold liquids, such as coffee and tea.
Overall, the idea of a cooling a warm beer at a quick rate POPs.
