The only thing worse than having only warm beer on hand? Having no beer on hand.

Step 1: Stack beers
Stack a layer of beers, horizontally, on the bottom of the empty cooler.

Don't pack the beer in so tightly that there's no room for ice to flow between cans or bottles.

Step 2: Pour ice
Pour ice over the beer.

Step 3: Sprinkle salt
Sprinkle rock salt on top; it lowers the freezing point of ice, meaning the ice will melt into a freezing cold beer bath.

Be sure to warn guests that there's rock salt in the ice so they don't unwittingly eat it!

Step 4: Stack second layer
Neatly stack a second layer of beer into the cooler.

Step 5: Apply more ice
Apply more ice and rock salt.

Step 6: Keep adding layers
Keep adding new layers of beer, ice and salt until your cooler is full, and then keep the lid on—when there aren't hands reaching in for another.

Did You Know?
Some beer connoisseurs believe beer tastes best at no less than 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
