The Epidemic.

There is an epidemic that has been running rampant for decades, maybe even centuries. It doesn't discriminate, it doesn't judge, it doesn't care, and if we don't take action, it's going to get worse.

The epidemic that we speak of ruins your golf game, destroys barbeques and slices your bare feet at the swimming pool. If you haven't already guessed it, we are talking about warm beer and broken bottles.  

We have the solution. We have the cure. 

BottleKeeper: The True Story

On a warm but fateful summer day, we were sitting lazily on a beach with our Uncle Van. As Uncle Van’s beautifully full push-broom mustache was gently wavering in the sea breeze, we began complaining about the warm beer simmering in our ‘red solo cups’.

There are few things that can kill your mood on a relaxing, warm summer day, but the taste of obnoxiously warm beer filling your mouth is absolutely one of them. This is not one of those problems that you come across every day, but when it occurs, it’s just devastating.

As we pondered the depth of our predicament, a serious brainstorm began regarding potential solutions that would allow us to enjoy the cool refreshing taste of carbonated joy in a way that didn’t require us to slam the beer in 3 minutes or less…as much as you try, you just can’t slam them all.

It was at that very moment that a golden light flashed above Cousin Matt’s head as if Zeus himself had sent a bolt of lightening from the heavens above; “what if we could leave the beer in the bottle and put the bottle in something that would keep it cold, like one of those stainless steel water bottles?” and BAM!, BottleKeeper was born.

As illustrated below, BottleKeeper has a 1/4 inch thick neoprene sleeve that lines the walls of a stainless steel container that just so happens to keep the contents substantially colder than a standard beer “koozie”. It’s science.

The result of this highly technic​al advance in scientific research is that your beer is kept colder, longer, and by the way, you don’t have to keep pretending that it’s not beer you’re drinking in that not so inconspicuous ‘red solo cup’…yet another problem solved. Oh look, BottleKeeper also protects that beer from it’s other arch-enemy, gravity.

We would like you to join us and take the ever important step of acknowledging that you, too, do not enjoy broken bottles or warm beer (sorry England). We charge you, keeper of the funds, with the responsibility to help eliminate the warm beer and broken bottle epidemic by supporting BottleKeeper and sharing it with your friends. Don’t be selfish, it’s really a matter of safety.

Wait, there's more! BottleKeeper keeps beer cold and intact; at the pool, at the beach, in the park or the woods, on a boat, on a plane, on the moon (we're guessing here, we haven't been able to test this yet), on the sidewalk or at a baseball game, a football game, a softball game, a kickball game, a handball game, a whiffle ball game, a golf match, a tennis match, a badminton match, a wresting match, and even, although we don't suggest it, during a karate match. 

Let's be straight, BottleKeeper keeps beer cold anywhere that you would like to enjoy the legal delight of cold suds. It's even FAA safe and allowed on all domestic and international flights (although they don't serve bottles on planes, except those tiny liquor bottles, so we're not real sure what to do here, but you can still take it on a plane if you want).

After taking charge of your enthusiastic future as a beer loving consumer, you can rest assured that every nickel raised in this campaign is going to be invested in our first manufacturing run. We are fully committed to you and to BottleKeeper. At this point, we have personally funded the creation and cost of the molds, so we're already very invested in completing this project. Now we ask you to get involved in changing the world by eliminating warm beer and broken bottles, once and for all.

A Special Note; although we know you're a responsible adult, we're not condoning or recommending that you break the law by using BottleKeeper to drink a beer where you shouldn't. Just saying.

BottleKeeper's Progress

In a matter of months we have successfully filed trademarks, a patent, created prototypes, performed preliminary heat transfer testing, created pertinent CAD/engineering drawings, performed substantial 'due diligence' to create a relationship with a stainless steel bottle manufacturer in China, ordered the molds for the first production run and compared Kickstarter to Fundable for a Crowdfunding platform...Fundable won. 

We have a functional landing page at TheBottleKeeper.com, where we have been successfully collecting emails for over two months and are beginning to secure 'pre-orders' with retailers across the country, with more significant volumes recently (50+ units). We're also actively growing a social media presence for BottleKeeper on both Facebook and Twitter. He's probably going to punch us both for saying this, but he has a rather "unique" personality.

How is BottleKeeper Different?

With the competition being a standard beer 'koozie' and a 'red solo cup', BottleKeeper is leaps and bounds ahead. Let's be honest, drinking beer out of a plastic cup is like surfing with a t-bone steak tied to your leg...it just doesn't make sense.

As entrepreneurs, Adam and Matt have been involved in a number of startups, from medical device and health insurance reimbursement technology companies, to mobile applications and alternative fuel conversion systems for commercial vehicles at a national level. We have the combined experience that will allow BottleKeeper to take the cold beer epidemic by storm.

Brewtis the BottleKeeper - Chief Beer Protector (CBP)

I believe that all beer has the right to remain cold. I intend to protect that right. I love beer. And America. 


Brewtis, although quite young, has grown a bit of an attitude. Despite the fact that he's only 3 months old, he's been heard saying things like, "if you try to put that Smirnoff Ice inside me, I'm going to put it inside you" and "touch my burger and I'm going to punch you in your beer hole". He did subsequently punch that guy in his "beer hole". Let's just say that he's serious about beer and all activities that accompany beer. Other than that, I wouldn't twist his lid too much...
