Beer Blizzard on Shark Tank
|Beer Blizzard 6-pack appearing on the|
in Episode 725
The Beer Blizzard's patented product take's advantage of any beer koozie on the market by keeping the drink insulated, and then takes advantage of all beer cans and bottles having hollowed-out bottoms. You simply pop in a Beer Blizzard into the bottom of the can or bottle and then inside the koozie that'll keep your beer from getting warm.
The entrepreneur's bringing the Beer Blizzard to the Shark Tank in Episode 725 this Friday night is Tom "Ozzy" Osborne, and Mike Robb from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. To raise the necessary capital getting the Beer Blizzard from concept to a retail product, they started a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter April 25, 2014. The Kickstarter campaign ended June 9, 2014, with 2044 financial backers raising over $43,500.00 making the Beer Blizzard product a reality.
I'm not sure how Beer Blizzard got part of their Shark Tank appearance released before this Episode 725 first airs on TV,
but it looks like they're having a great time dealing with the Sharks. The Sharks do happen to notice in the video posted below that Beer Blizzard already has the "As Seen On TV" on the packaging. It was an honest response at the time, but only if the Beer Blizzard made the final cut getting on the Shark Tank Show.
Beer Blizzard before Shark Tank Episode 725It doesn't take a Beer Connoisseur to realize there's an enormous market for a product like the Beer Blizzard. On a hot Summer day out at the lake, I probably dump out half the beers opened just because I can't stand warm beer. But I do like an ice-cold beer from time to time. It seems like the Beer Blizzard has everything going for it heading into the Shark Tank. Everything that is but the name of the product that might make a few Sharks shy away.
The thing about Koozie's is they are designed for ALL can and bottle beverages, not just beer. The name alone would stop me from placing a Beer Blizzard under my Kid's soda even though it gets just as warm as a beer. It's a great idea, but why they chose to limit the product's market is a little confusing at this point. It'll be interesting seeing if the Shark's bring up this valid point for not branding the product to its full potential.
Watch the Beer Blizzard on the next Shark Tank Show this Friday night, 3/18/2016, and see if the Shark's invest in the beer cooler guaranteed to keep cans and bottle beverage from getting too warm inside a koozie.
