Koozies at the OBC

Custom Koozies @ The OBC

People ask me – what is the deal with the OBC?  And all I have to say is Custom Koozies are what we are about!

You see, everyone loves custom koozies and no one more than this guy!  I have worked at various custom koozie companies around the world and I can say that by far and away the OBC is where it is at…

People then ask me – well, why do I need Koozies – it is November 7, 2011 and is it not about to be winter?  Well folks, I got news for you – Winter is not just a great time to drink a cold beer – it is the best time.  Snuggle down on the couch – crank up the fire place – crack a cold one – cover it with a koozie and you have nothing to worry about.  Your hand stays warm and your beer stays cold.  Enough said!

Google changes and Qurans Burn

What next, cant make custom koozies?

So, I was scrolling through the news this morning and I stumble across a few interesting stories; google is making some changes and they plan on burning Qurans.  I can believe it, now I am just waiting on them to tell me, I can have my custom koozies, personalized koozies, cheap koozies, or can koozies made any more.

Seriously what are you thinking changing google, ever hear the expression, if it aint broke, dont fix it… I like google, matter of fact, I love google, lets leave it alone.

Now, I have a really big WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU THINKING BURNING THE QURAN?

My pops always taught me, just because you can do something, doesnt me you should.  Yes, we have the first amendment right to burn the Quran.  Yes, I am sure they burn the flag, the bible, and whatever else; but that doesnt mean we should answer them with the same, amateur, hate filled, bull shit response.  All we are doing is giving the weak minded peps over there something to get angry about, and who will pay the price?  Our troops…

Guys, think twice act once…

Beer Koozies

Invention of Beer Koozies

The beer Koozie is an insulated fabric sleeve that wraps around cans and bottles to keep beer and other beverages cold. When empty it is easily collapsible so it takes up little room when stored. It is unclear who the original inventor is, but a series of U.S. patents trace its history all the way back to 1921 and an invention called a “cozy” for insulating portable gas generators.

The Krazy Koozie

1. In 2007, Kyle Brandon Jones of Glen Rose, Texas, was granted a U.S. patent for the Krazy Koozie. In his patent application, he describes the Krazy Koozie as a device that is similar to a wide variety of other products on the market. Like those other products, the Krazy Koozie wraps around beverage containers and protects the hands from hot drinks and insulates cold beverages. but Jones’ Koozie also expands and contracts to hold a variety of different sizes and shapes of beverage containers. Jones’ patent application is a useful guide to the history of Koozies because it contains references to related patents that date back to 1921.

The Earliest Koozies

2. David and Russell Duncan patented the earliest known Koozie in 1921 for a “cozy for portable gas generators.” The United States granted another related patent in 1929 for a linoleum jacket to William Waggoner.

The First Beverage Koozie

3. The first owner of a patent on a beer Koozie was Bonnie McGough of Caldwell, Idaho. She received her patent in October 1981 for a device she called the “insulated beverage cozy.” This insulated cozy was made for use with 12-oz. cans. The cozy had inner and outer fabric walls with a chamber in between for insulating material and an elastic band at the top for holding the beverage snugly inside the cozy.

Improving on Mcgough’s Design

4. In 1987, Scott Henderson of Plano, Texas, received a patent for a product he described as a fold-up insulated beverage container holder with a stabilizing support base. This Koozie offered a specially designed base that could collapse with the rest of the Koozie, but which also added stability so that when someone put their Koozie-covered drink down on a flat surface it wouldn’t wobble or fall over.

Today’s Koozie Market

5. There are so many different Koozies on the market today, it’s hard to say who invented what. There is not even any agreement on how to spell the Koozie. It has been referred to as a Koozie, koozy, cosy, cozie, cozy and any other spelling you can imagine. They come in all manner of shapes, colors and sizes. Some have sports team logos on them. Some have beer brewery logos. Some have zippers. Some have buttons. The only thing we can say for sure is that we know a Koozie when we see one.
