AdvancedPierre Food Safety Director Tom Osborne and Pennsylvania law associate Michael Robb invented the Beer Blizzard, a plastic disc of thermal gel that can cool a can of beer to “blizzard cold” temperatures. Many “Shark Tank” fans have wondered where the Beer Blizzard is now and if they can still buy one.
Beer Blizzard actually wasn’t much of a success while it was on “Shark Tank.” Although Mark Cuban initially offered a deal of $100,000 for 25% ownership, it soon fell through, and Beer Blizzard found support from both Wal-Mart and a Kickstarter that raised $5,000.
Following this success, Beer Blizzard attempted a licensing agreement with NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., but that too fell through. As a result, the company went out of business in 2018, forcing fans of Beer Blizzard to look for other ways to keep their drinks cool.
