Put them next to my ex wifes lawyers heart.

 

Failing to find a lawyers heart, taking them from the fridge and putting them in the freezer 30 to 45 minutes prior to opening works well.

 

Decant quickly down ones warm and dry throat.

At last, isnt it nice to read something light , funny and without a ferang covertly promoting his big head.

YES!

 

Having said that, beer only stays cold for the first five inches of its journey, tragically.

Use a double-walled glass, as I do for many years, also for my drinkingwater the whole day.

For a little to order at Ali, or maybe Lazada.

Personally, I also hate ice in my beer as it can be a source of "Bangkok Belly" from contamination - dirty water, dirty hands (if no tongs)! Quite common to see Thais and farangs picking out ice cubes with their fingers to put into drinks (beer, whisky/soda etc.). In bars, I always state "no ice" (mai namkhaeng kap) and check that my beer bottle or can comes from a chill cabinet. In my local bar here in Cambodia, the bottles and cans are stored in chill cabinets as are the glasses. The draught beers are dispensed through cooling units. So, no ice at all. At festivals, parties etc. I keep cans or bottles in a cool box containing ice cubes also making sure I clean drops of water from ring pull cans before opening and drinking - possible contaminated water again! I know many will think this is ridiculous but it is from experience and I no longer have to dash to the loo!

In a bar, insist on a beer condom and immediately drink your beer down to the top of the condom.  The bit in the condom stays cold, the bit outside it heats up , which heats up the whole beer.

Those bloody Americans. This thread reminded me of the Coors Light commercials I grew up with back in the States.

 

An ice covered train or semi truck carrying the beer would bust into the scene blowing snow everywhere, and a party with lots of young, attractive people would ensue. The announcer would then extol the virtues of the beer, "Ice cold! Super cold! Colder and bolder!", or something to that effect.

 

As the years passed, this emphasis on coldness got more and more ridiculous, with special coating inside the cans to keep it colder, a specially designed spout to optimize the pouring of the beer faster, so it wouldn't get warm, and then finally, the logo on the can would change to blue when you knew it was cold enough. Yeah, the beer was cold, or could be depending on your efforts. Just about the only good thing about that garbage, and the only way it was tolerable.

Good advice.

I keep a glass mug in the freezer, and small bottles or cans in the refrigerator itself. Any ice I use in other mixed drinks is made from boiled water.

I stick mine in the freezer at least two hours before I am going to start drinking!

That's a good idea, but I'm not sure I can convince the wife to get out of bed two hours before me.
