People have traditionally built hidden safes to help secure their valuable items from theft. For those whose priorities run to keeping their beer safe, there is now the Biersafe ($70+), an outdoor underground tube that will hold 16 bottles in a cool refrigerated state without using electricity.
The Biersafe is installed by digging a hole in the ground for its 4-foot deep cylinder and comes with a locking cast iron lid that has a built-in bottle opener. Inside the safe is an aluminum rack that lifts out, holding 4 bottles at each level, kept naturally chilled by the surrounding earth.
A bit of landscaping will conceal your stash from inquisitive sight, or you can use it as a conversation piece at your next backyard cookout. Best of all, by using Eart’s cooling power, you save on utilities while still enjoying a cold brew.
