Yes. That's what an extra fridge is for
good thinkin'.

and people say alcohol kills brain cells. I say they don't know wtf they're talkin' 'bout!
We've got an extra minifridge here serving in that capacity, and a second one of those that gets plugged in for parties since the main fridge is somewhat small.
Reminds me of my days in what you would probably call a 'dorm'; I know I was the third guy to have "The Fridge" -it could hold three cases of beer below the actual 'fridge' part of it -kept at a PERFECT 8 ºC (three degrees more than normal fridge temp) and another two cases in the actual fridge part -double that amount if it was cans (which we didn't have here back then)
I know of at least two other guys having it after me.

It only takes about 20 seconds for it to settle enough to open safely. On the device. I've seen these tested in/on consumer shows/magazines/websites. The consensus seems to be they don't work very well in getting a complete chill.

I have a friend who had something like that, and another friend who currently owns it. Amazingly enough, it's 20 years old and still works.

Sizewise, this thing is almost perfectly in the middle between a standard minifridge and a full sized home fridge. It's friggin' heavy too. With two of us lifting, we could barely manage two flights of stairs.

Anything that makes it easier to get a cold one to my lips faster is an okay device in my book.

After all, a One that is not cold is scarcely a One at all!

Priorities, my good man. One can not stress too highly the importance of having a cold supply ready to hand.

"Cerveza para llevar" is Spanish.
And are you not aware of the massive Mexican populations of the Southwest?

Nevermind the word "go" is in english as are the "open" signs.

^This is a two to four minute chill! -that's the great thing about it!
The speed depends mostly on the temperature of the coolant. If that's ice water, it's going to be no lower than 0'C. But if you used brine slush straight out the freezer at -20'C, you could expect to shave a couple of minutes off that time.

You're tempted to make a couple of litres of brine slush and try it now aren't you?

[Dissolve salt in boiling water until no more will dissolve. It may take up to a kilogram of salt for two liters of water. Allow this to cool then place in the freezer overnight. It will be cryogenic slush by the morning. Is dangerous due to its ability to freeze skin rapidly if any of it splashes on you. Can be reused once it warms up.]

Guys, you both missed the most obvious indicator of where this is shot. It's in Texas. The vehicles have Texas plates and the neon beer signs are in English.

I like, tried to read the license plates, but couldn't. I don't know how you could see that.
