Coors Light Cold Activation Temperature Indicator Decoder

Hey! I bought a thermometer. Prepare to be bored to death with my super-accurate temperature measurements!

For those humans who don't own a thermometer, the beer marketplace provides a solution. Coors Light beer cans are manufactured with a precise two-stage thermometer, which, by color change, indicates an exact temperature from between 60° and 41° Fahrenheit. At warm temperatures, the bars are both gray. At cooler temps, the bars are blue.

Below are five photos of the colored bars, and the temperature of the beer inside the can at the time the photo was taken. Yes, these photos were taken at the same time as the "Fastest Way to Cool Down Beer" experiment.

Step one. Warm beer. Both bars are gray. The beer in the can was 60°F.

Step two. Cool beer. The bar on the top is blue, the bottom one is gray. Is the photo out of focus, or is there condensation on the glass? We will never know. The beer in the can was 53°F.

Step three. Cold beer. The bar on the top is blue, the bottom one is bluish-gray. The beer in the can was 48°F.

Step four. Very cold beer. The bar on the top is blue, the bottom one too, but not quite as blue as the top one. The beer in the can was 43°F.

And Finally, step five. "Super cold" beer. The bars are identically blue. The beer in the can was 41°F.

There you have it! This information probably belongs in Wikipedia, but some teetotaler from Baltimore keeps erasing it, so I'll just have to keep it here.

If you share your empty Coors Light cans with your kids, they can do experiments with cold water, ice and salt. Maybe your beer-drinking habit will foster in your kids a lifelong love of science!

Just don't use the cold activation bars as an indicator for sickness revealed by an elevated body temperature.

CPS hates that.
