When it comes to hiking trips, backyard BBQs, and camping a good cooler to keep your beverage nice and cold in the hot summer sun — and out of the paws of any nosy animals — is necessary. The great thing about a quality cooler is that it lasts many years before you have to replace it so it will save you money in the long run. Here are six coolers that will keep your beverages ice cold in the hot summer heat!

Units with a glass door are ideal for displaying the drinks you have on hand for entertaining, while a solid stainless steel door allows you to store things discreetly. Beverage refrigerators free up space in the kitchen refrigerator to store other items and make it easier to find a desired drink. Some built-in beverage coolers come with finished sides so they can be left as freestanding units.

To camouflage your bar refrigerator, try using a butcher block slab as a makeshift counter and attach a magnetic caddy for silverware storage. For a secret stash, tuck your refrigerator into a repurposed dresser. Want more personality? Add a pattern with washi tape for custom dorm decor, or check out nostalgic designs from trusted brands like IGLOO. If you prefer a simple look, browse classic black or stainless steel styles.
