The Most Idiotic Beer Inventions And Innovations Of All Time

As per Jesse Hughey, here are the most idiotic beer inventions and innovations of all time:

  1. Beer Hour (Biru Awa) Beer Can Dispenser

  2. The Koozie

  3. The keychain bottle opener

  4. The Vortex bottle

  5. Cold activated cans and bottles

  6. The vented wide-mouth can

  7. Shoot A Brew cooler

  8. Beer helmet

I can't personally imagine not having my opener on my keyring, but the rest of them mostly deserve to be on the list. Read the rationale for each at the Dallas Observer.

I used to love using a koozie in the old days. But now a day I drink all my beer in a glass. I just us gloves when I'm fishing in cold weather.

I think they mean that Coors Light is the #6, not the can itself...

Who doesn't use a koozie when they are playing golf or fishing or at the beach. And a key ring opener is a must! Silly those are included.

We all remember the standout beer brand of the mid 1900s, a beer called Rheingold which was first produced in the early years of 1883 and permeated society to become a top-selling beverage due to its fair pricing and solid taste. Rheingold’s appeal was so influential that during the 1950s, it accounted for a third of the New York’s beer market, revealing its widespread appreciation. Its pigeon mascot fits its New York origins and seemingly represents the soaring nature, specifically the taking off and popularity of this beer.

Furthermore, the brand bolstered its recognition by holding annual Miss Rheingold Competitions, in order to find beautiful women to represent the brand and its image. Apart from this endeavor, Rheingold sought to promote their brand by top advertising, hiring celebrities such as John Wayne and the Marx Brothers to represent the beer in popular television commercials. However, the most notable aspect about this beer is that it is making a comeback today, when it was acquired by the liquor company DrinksAmericas in 2005.

I first came across this retro beer at a party a couple of weeks ago, and let me tell you that I loved its mellow flavor as well as the incredible amount of history which is associated with the brand. The fact that my dad used to drink this beer boggles my mind and shows just how pertinent the Rheingold brand is to various age groups, whether young or old. Everyone around me at the party enjoyed the beer too, as they kept on asking questions about this drink that they had never heard of before. If you haven’t heard of it or want to inquire about more information regarding this amazing beverage, hit up the beer’s website at, to be pleasantly introduced to New York’s Prime Beer! Take a look, then a taste, and you will agree with me that Rheingold is here to stay.
