The construction of the Slopeside Beer Tube Storage is relatively simple: It’s a basic downspout pipe from Home Depot buried in the snow and stocked with beer. Inside the bottom of the tube is a smaller cap tethered to a nylon cord. When the cord is pulled from the top, all the drinks slide upward to your hand. (Officially it’s been dubbed it the Mountain Pop 3000.)
Maintain the top of the tube. If too much snow and ice tumble inside the tube, you can jam your beers and have a hard time getting them free. At worst, you’ll have to retrieve them later in the spring.
