Bottled beer on ice in a Polar Bear Cooler and Bushmills in a Platypus Wine Preserver: http://www.rei.com/product/781835
These rock for liquor, easy to "stuff" in panniers, etc. They are also tough.

As Belgians we know how to transport real beer.
Two 6-pack of Ciney brown in the paniers
and 5 liter of Maes-pils at the back . Always good

I have a deep respect and appreciation for what you Europeans have passed down to us Americans as far as beer goes. But really, have you seen what we've been doing without the purity laws. We are now brewing some of the finest brews on the planet. Same goes for what we're doing with coffee, the French, Italians, and Turks have nothing on us anymore.

Best beer I ever had was one you pulled out of that cooler and handed to me somewhere in the middle of the Chihuahuan Desert in Mexico.

I like beer as much as the next guy, but carrying it on a motorcycle is too much of a pain. Takes up too much room, can't keep it cold, gets all shook up etc. This is a much more practical approach. Plastic travel model. We ride in Ar. frequently and there are a lot of dry counties down there.

Polar bear (thanks Stonewall) 2 for 1 deal. Camo so you can hide the cold ones from the FFs back at camp.

RR, what's that brand name and model number? Pic?

Thumb Riding with Beer

I`ve found the best way to transport beer when riding is to find a store Pick out your beer Pay for it, and have the girl behind the counter hold onto it for you as you both ride back to camp

Problem solved:
12 oz. of whisky in a can. Slight aluminum taste no extra charge.

I converted my tailpack into a padded cooler. It's big enough for a sixer and padded well enough that it shouldn't shake up drinks too bad. Hard to tell though, haven't tested it fully yet.

This is my favorite option as well. But when all else fails I just buy daily beer in tallboys (during an evening stop just before making camp) and stick'em in my Camelback. I just buy enough for one evening and suppliment with the Reverend Jim Beam.

I bring along one of those insulated mylar type bags that you can often buy at the grocery store. You know the ones, about the size of a pizza box. They take up very little room when not in use. I pick up some ice and beer at the last town I go though. The ice goes in the insulated bag along with a beer or two and I loosen the straps on my duffel and then tighten them down with the ice in place. I pretty much only drink micro brew pale ales, and lucky for me, there's quite a few good ones now available in cans. Used to be you could only get micro brews in bottles. Cans are a little easier to pack and they also cool down faster once on ice.

Here's my easy cooling method:
1. Wrap those cold beer from the fridge tightly in a fleece jacket and other clothing, place them deep in your pack/bag away from the sun. Need a beer during the day? They're still cool even on a hot day.
2. After arriving at your camping destination, immediately tie parachute cord/tie line to the plastic holder or through the pull tabs.
3. Tie other end of line to a heavy rock, place the rock in a lake or river or tie to a tree if a heavy rock isn't available.
4. Deposit beer into cold lake or river (mother nature's cooler)
5. Set up camp and cook a meal letting beer have time to cool further
6. Pull beer out of water as needed

The method above works best with cans but can be used with bottles, if you trust your knots.

I try to get it as close to the camp site as possible.

Scotch really does travel much better.
