I used quotes in the title around “instantly” because there is some setup time involved in this trick that involves a freezer, but the trick is still impressive as it is.
If you haven’t watched the video above yet, what you will see is a liquid beer that instantly turns to ice once it is slammed onto a counter top. In order to perform this trick you need to take the beer (in a glass bottle) and leave it completely undisturbed in a freezer for 3 hours. Do not place the beer in the door of the freezer if you intend to open the freezer door. Any slight disturbance to the beer may cause the trick to fail.
Once the beer has been in the freezer for 3 hours, remove it and tap it against a hard surface. Almost instantly you’ll see the beer change from liquid to solid right before your eyes.
Based on recent experience, short neck bottles don’t work as well. A buddy talked up the trick all night and then when he attempted it with a Heineken bottle it completely failed leaving him looking like an idiot so find a bottle with a longer neck, like a Corona. If you have any other tips on how to make it work every time, without fail, please let us know in the comments and don’t forget to follow us on Twittter @drink101
