With the love of our lives, the common stubby cooler, holder or Koozie, we are endevouring to find out more about where this humble item came from. This is part 1 of the adventure as we delve into the murky depths of an ice cold beer. :)

 

Known as the Beer Koozie in the USA, the stubby holder has origins from a company who trademarked the name Koozie in 1979 in Texas. Origionally designed as a drink cooler out of syrofoam, over the year stubby holders or koozies have developed into using other materials. The most common material currently is Neoprene, commonly know as wetsuit rubber. This rubber, is a synthetic material and as such is able to have ink inpregnated into it using a process called heat sublimation. Using specially designed inks, to deal with the temperature change, the result is the ability to print full colour images onto what was original white wesuit rubber.

The idea behind the stubby cooler, is to keep the drink insulated. The first developer saw a niche for a product to be used in warmer climates and as such the koozie is now common in many western countries with warm climates. Because of the simplicity of the design, cycinder with a base, the stubby holder has become a bit of a cult item of most Australian Men. They are found in their favourite drinking locations, be it their local bar or shed out the back, but the real growth has come with companies realising the advertising potential of the space.
