- Fill a container (something insulted like a cooler is best) with ice, water, and lots of salt. You really can't overdo it on the salt here, but you can overdo it on ice. Make sure to add enough water to surround the drinks, since that gives you the maximal surface area to cool the beer inside.
- Submerge your cans and/or bottles as much as possible. Make sure that they aren't packed too tightly, since you want the icy water to flow around each container. If you've put the drinks in a cooler with a top, close the top.
- Wait. This should only take about five minutes.
- That's it! Enjoy your chilled beer.
