Video: There's nothing like cracking a cold beer on a hot summer day, but what if your six-pack isn't chilled? You've got to find a way to get those brews frosty, lest you face the horror of a lukewarm libation. That's why we're trying a couple of methods to cool your beer quickly.

It's not shocking that the ice worked, but it was surprising just how tepid the wet paper towel was.
