Beer Belt or Hops Holster? The Eternal Question

Don't ask us why, but there are some days when you need to have six beers on you, but you can't carry them in a cooler or bag. Maybe you're going for a jog, maybe you're sneaking them into a movie theater, but whatever your reason, we've done the research to find out your options.

Not only do the Beer Belt and the Hops Holster offer amazing portability and comfort, you can bet you'll be on the cutting edge of fashion. Or maybe not. Whether it's for you or for a beer drinking friend, we've compared the two so you'll know which one to buy. All in all, we think the Hops Holster is the better deal, but we leave the final decision up to you.

Beer Belt

Beer Belt ModelSlogan: "Never Be Thirsty Again"

Price: $14.95

Stats: "Hold a six-pack without your hands! Our fully adjustable beer belt allows for hands free convenience while keeping your precious beer at no further than an arm’s length. Accommodates both cans and bottles."

Our Thoughts: While their model does add some sex appeal, the beer belt loses some points because its "pockets" are open on the sides, so we can't see it keeping the beer very cold. You'd better hope it's snowing outside if you want cold beer, or plan to drink up pretty quickly.

Hops Holster

Hops HolsterSlogan: "Forget Double Fisting - Roll With Six Cans at a Time"

Price: $14.95

Stats: "Adjustable waist: 28" to 48" Height of each beer pocket = 4" plus 3/4" lower for the strap that holds can at bottom. So 4 and 3'4" inches is height of each pocket. Diameter of each individual beer pocket is 3" Hidden pocket: 5" wide x 3 and 1/2" long vertically."

Our Thoughts: The Hops Holster features neoprene pockets, the same material used in wet suits and the like, and each pocket functions as a mini-cooler. The Hops Holster site also features keg coolers and shoulder bags, if wearing beer in a belt doesn't quite do it for you.

Available at:, or call 888-886-HOPS.

The can grenade koozie belt blows these two out the water! For the same price, you get both a zippable neoprene top and a detachability so you can drink the beer with the cooler on it.
