“I’d really love a warm beer”, said no one ever.
Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered—your drink that is. That’s because CHILLOOZIE is the latest, greatest, coolest, coldest, best-est drink coozie on the market. In fact, it’s the world’s FIRST vacuum sealed coozie for your pint glass that can keep your drink cold for up to two hours.

The world’s slowest drinker, that’s who. The real problem with drinking from a naked pint glass doesn't happen in hours, but rather in just a few minutes. That's how fast a beer can become undrinkable in a naked pint glass.
Beer is meant to be served (and consumed) in a relatively small temperature window, depending upon its style. Most range from 5 to 10 degrees.
A beer's flavor profile is built upon a delicate balance between the forces of hot and cold as heat magnifies certain flavor components, while cold subdues them. As a beer grows warmer, it naturally loses that balance and thus becomes less and less tasty.
The clock starts ticking on flavor loss the moment that your beer is poured. If you don't hurry, you may miss out on that perfect flavor window in just a few minutes!
Traditional coozies provide little to no insulation for your drink. Beyond adding a touch of personality, they don’t do much more than keep your warm hand from touching the cold beer. And frankly, that’s just not enough. As lovers of deliciously cold beer, heat is our mortal enemy. And it is our duty to eliminate it.
CHILLOOZIE is made of two layers of stainless steel separated by a vacuum seal, which will help maintain your beverages temperature and will never sweat. Its dual-wall technology forms a vacuum barrier between your drink and the outside temperature, enabling your drink to stay at its ideal drinking temperature for hours on end. Most likely even longer than it ever takes for you to drink it.
For that little bit of extra chill, drop a Chill Pill into your CHILLOOZIE before you drop in your glass. Our Chill Pill is a refreezable gel filled plastic cooler that will help keep your CHILLOOZIE even colder. Think of it like putting a large super-powered ice cube into your beer...without actually putting ice in your beer.
The frozen Chill Pill works by lowering the internal temperature of the interior metal surrounding the glass itself. This helps to bring down the internal temperature of the CHILLOOZIE and thus your drink's temperature and keep it colder for longer.
It's always a good idea to keep a few extra Chill Pills in the freezer or cooler... you never know when an extra one might come in handy.
CHILLOOZIE sports a soft yet durable silicone bottom, so you never have to worry about where you set your beer down next. Water rings and scuff marks will soon become a a thing of the past!
It's amazing how quickly a naked pint warms up. So whether you’re standing under the blistering sun at a family BBQ, or sitting in the shade on your front porch with friends, CHILLOOZIE will help your drink stay chill so you can always be doing the same.
Sometimes, you don’t want to use a glass? And that works too! The CHILLOOZIE doubles as its own cup and holds up to 20 ounces of liquid goodness! Its low profile outer rim was designed especially for sipping.
The CHILLOOZIE works with hot stuff as well, which is why we’ve included a silicone top... Pop one on top for when you want to drink some coffee or tea.
Don't see the reward combination that you're looking for? Or want to get some extra Chill Pills? Don't worry, you'll be able to order more a la cart after our campaign is over...
Portland is a city of beer lovers, and rightfully so. Within the the state of Oregon alone there are nearly 180 brewing companies operating over 225 brewing facilities in 71 cities. Guess which city has a majority of those breweries? You guessed it. Portland.
Being from this great beer-laden city, we’ve developed an appreciation for a well-crafted beverage and wanted to enjoy it’s great taste for as long as we can. So we decided to come up with product that helps people do just that.
Our mission is to stay chill, plain and simple. We started CHILLOOZIE not only because we love great beer, but also because we know that the time you spend enjoying it is just as important as the beer itself. We’re interested in more than keeping drinks chilled... we're interested in what that cold drink provides: sanctitude, great flavor and a chance to relax with friends or even just by yourself. What started as a few friends sitting in the shallows of the Willamette River grudgingly choking down warm beer has grown into a burgeoning company with a passion for great products that bring people together!
Our mascot, the sloth, loves to keep things chill. That’s why we chose him. He’s relaxed, he’s slow, and he loves to just hang out and stay chill. Next time you’re sipping that ice-cold beer on a hot day, we encourage you to close your eyes, imagine a sloth with a winter cap, and try not to smile. He’s magic, we tell you.
After a year and a half of perfecting our design, testing prototypes, and reworking those designs in accordance with factory tooling, we’ve finally arrived at a finished product. Our manufacturing partner has just finished up tooling, so we'll be ready to place an order once our Kickstarter campaign wraps up.
Risks and challenges
The CHILLOOZIE team includes people with design, manufacturing and fulfillment experience. We’ve made award winning products before and are confident in our ability to deliver to our Kickstarter backers.
While most of the hard parts of the process have been completed, it’s possible that we could run into delays if unforeseen environmental factors pop up along the way. That said, we've been preparing for much of the past year for this launch and have a number of safeguards in place to ensure it goes smoothly.
With your support, we're confident that we can deliver a great product that we can all be proud of.
