Now you know what happens when you freeze beer.

Now you know what happens when you freeze beer.

A few weeks prior, a good friend had been over for a barbecue and brought a few bottles of Becks. Being all smart and everything, we thought, “Hey, let’s put them in the freezer to get them cold right away.”

  1. Yep, did this with a glass bottle of Diet Coke, a day later there was a huge explosion in the freezer, still digging out fizzy ice. Whoopsie but it has to be done.

    • Ouch. The funny thing is I never noticed an explosion or anything; I don’t know if it happened slowly or in one big burst. It was a mess to clean either way, of course.

  2. I used to do this with Smirnoff Ice and the bottles didn’t explode. The stuff didn’t even turn solid until I opened the bottle, but then (and only then) the top would freeze into an ice cube, trapping all the liquid inside.

    if you take the bottle out of the freezer at the right time, you get a nice alcoholic snow cone…

    • Ha – that’s amazing! I guess the alcohol content is just enough to stop it from completely freezing up. I should point out this was non-alcoholic beer, so that probably explains why it froze so readily. I might have to try that with Smirnoff Ice now.

Tell me something!
