    Post ride brew cooler

    I have a Galaxy 15-quart Lunchbox. It's perfect for post-ride, as it holds 12 cans and enough ice for the day. It's not tall enough to fit bottles upright, but I don't care too much about that. I'm pretty sure Galaxy is out of business, though. Yeti is the current king of the cooler world.

    Here's the manufacturer's product photo:

    And here's mine in "action." Notice it makes a great spot for stickers.

    A good friend of mine has a more sophisticated setup, though.

    My main weekly ride begins and ends at my house, so this is my main after ride beer cooler:

    Ride Bikes, Drink Craft Beer, Repeat.

    Know these before you post:

    We call them eskys down here (Australia) but how do you cool lets say just a can or two that you either want to take on the ride with you or have waiting for you in the car? I dont want to deal with ice and the esky when I'm going on an after work ride but I still like to enjoy a cool beer when I'm back at my car (or alternatively take one with me).

    Man, if I decide to bring some beer on the bike I just drink it warm/whatever coolness it retained during the ride.


    Alternatively, I steal my wife's trendy looking lunchbox and leave it locked in the car.

    Anyone have reviews on the Yeti cooler they'd like to share? I am about to pull the trigger. I know there's a lot of knock-offs out there and wanted some advice.

    (I am hoping I don't need to start a new thread-this is somewhat on topic).

    Got this for a Christmas gift. Has a divided area on top you can put food, etc to keep it cool without getting soggy. A couple of those ice packs, and it's good to go, and cheap.

    I no longer drink beer until I'm home. However I can understand the need tor a suspension bike as a seat post rack will hold a 6 pack. Keep from shaking it up on the way home.
