cools your beer more or less instantly.

drink up quickly (stoopid UK licensing hours) or your beer will be on the floor.

       This'd be a Bad Thing for those among us who are inclined to drink lager. Lager has bubbles put in it because it tastes of not much. Wet glasses ==> flat pints ==> a diminished drinking experience.
my face your, Dec 07 2002

       Wonders if alcohol raises or lowers the melting point of ice. Or how patrons will drink up without melting the handle.   

       The better bars (yeah, I know you don't have any of those in Britain ;) do chill glasses before serving.
DrCurry, Dec 07 2002

       pondering this and have decided that a wooden handle would be good.
po, Dec 08 2002

       Fishbone - this would make the beer Ice cold. Real ale should not be cold .... lager maybe.   

       Wold be good in the summer for servicg cider, though...... hmm. Fishbone withdrawn pending further research.

       "a wooden handle would be good" - why not forget the glass and do beer popsicles?
dalek, Dec 09 2002

       Beer would taste like water from the melting ice.

       Baked - although for vodka - see link.
herilane, Dec 09 2002

       I'd be a little nervous...   

       Unless the beer was already quite cold, wouldn't the temperature change have the potential to crack the ice? I know ice cubes snap and crack when I pur cold juice, or other beverages onto them.   

       If you can't solve that difficult though, it would make for an excellent practical joke, especially in pubs which leave the glass cups in the frezer until serving. A simple switch to the "Evil" category might be all you need here.

       "cools your beer more or less instantly"...   

       No, not at all. Unless the vessel was very narrow, or in some other way had a massive surface area/volume ratio, the cooling wouldn't be instant at all. In fact, I think you'd find that without constant stirring, it would take quite some time to cool down the beer. Unless you were putting already ice-cold beer into the ice cup.....   

       mmmmm. Beer......
Custardguts, Aug 04 2006

       Hmmm... [+]Cold beer (lager rather than bitter... Everyone knows, it's best to put a good bitter in the microwave for a few seconds, before drinking)... But [-] I think the BSI/ISO would want to ensure that the contents weren't otherwise corrupted by the container... What TYPE of water too? Thames? Washing-up? or Other (more likely in the pubs round here) (Yuch!)? [+/-]

       Gy liks! Gy liks are stuck to the tankard!
bungston, Aug 04 2006

       How about a prank glass that consists of glass everywhere but the bottom? You put it in a mold, add some water, freeze it and hey presto - a glass that will hold your drink only for a limited time.   

       An icy bottom wouldn't be very noticable if the ice is clear enough.   

       <pun-prevent>and yes - I know icy bottoms may be prevented by long woollen underwear, but let's not go there, okay?</pun-prevent>

       welcome to the madness [forthur]   

       people have commented on my cold extremities...
po, Aug 12 2006

       [po] Madness? I thought this was pretty much the usual level here at HB?   

       Hmmm. Thinking about cold extremities - I mean ice bottoms to glasses gave me another idea. Before I post it here: does anyone know if any kind of cooling coasters have already been suggested here?
