With over seven months of quarantine under most of our belts, now more than ever it has become important to find opportunities to safely leave the apartment or house. Whether you grab a surfboard at the end of the day to spend a few hours riding waves or find a trail nearby to hike on the weekends, getting out and getting active is one of the only ways to stay centered and sane.

Of course, we’re beer nerds. So any physical activity we do usually ends with a celebratory beer or two. When we’re spending a day at the beach or trekking up a mountain top, these are the best pieces of beer gear we bring to ensure that our beer stays fresh and cold. After all, beer doesn’t like quarantining either.

YETI Hopper Backflip

Last year we teamed up with YETI during our women in craft beer festival Beers With(out) Beards. (PS: We just hosted this year’s virtual event and you can find all of the livestreams of each digital program here.) The Austin-based outdoor company hooked up every participating brewery with one of these bad boys. From personal experience, I can tell you they are amazing. These backpack/cooler hybrids fit up to 20 cans and most importantly keep them cold for hours and hours. Whether you’re hiking, camping, barbecuing, or picnicking, one of these YETI coolers should be in your arsenal.

Eagle’s Nest Outfitters Camping Hammock

There is no better feeling after a long hike or arduous climb than falling back into a comfy hammock pinned between two trees. And then cracking open a cold one. This Eagle’s Nest hammock is made for two, but it’s versatile and compact. Perfect for lounging around by the campfire or catching a few Zzzs in the summer breeze. The lounger is built into a bag with a clip, so you can easily add it to your pack and it at only 19oz you’ll never notice the added weight. Plus, we love the variety of colors it comes in.
