Slide in a Cold 12-Pack Case of Beer or Seltzer to Keep Your Drinks Cold for up to 7 Hours- No Ice
We’re 5 close friends with completely different backgrounds united by one simple thing: we love cold beer. When we were assigned a class project to create an idea that solved a problem we faced, we knew exactly what it would revolve around. We found ourselves drinking warm beer at a tailgate in Clemson, South Carolina. For the love of all that is holy, why are we drinking warm beer? We all had $300 coolers that could keep beer cold for a few weeks but didn’t use them to keep our beer cold for a few hours? This made no sense.
Well, we didn’t use our coolers because we didn’t want to have to deal with ice and hauling the huge thing all the way to our tailgate a mile from where we parked. So, instead, we stopped by the convenience store, grabbed a cold case, and just carried it with us to drink it as it got warm. We found our problem, Warm, Beer. Sucks! With this in mind, we noticed something very profound at the tailgate next to ours. It might seem normal to most, but what it represented was life changing. We saw someone take a cold beer out of a cooler and put it into a can insulator. What we really saw was someone take a cold beer out of what made it cold (the cooler) and put it into something to keep it cold for the entire time they’ll actually enjoy it (the Insulating Sleeve). That's when it hit us: Why the Heck isn't there a can Insulator for a whole case!
We took it out of a fridge (what made it cold), but we needed something to put it in to keep it cold for the entire time we were actually going to enjoy it without the ice or hassle! Right then and there, the vision for the Kanga Kase Mate was born. There was no going back. We realized what we had to do: end the tyranny of Big Cooler and set millions free from having to choose between cold or convenience.
A History of cold drinks
Spring 2017 - The Kase Mate Is Born:
Kanga Was The Result Of A Class Project at Clemson University. The Project tasked each group to find a solution to a problem they faced. So, naturally (being the 20-somethings that we were) our problem was that of warm beer. And, while we only made a B on the project, we walked away with something much better. A dream, and means to fulfill that dream.
