Never mind the looming spectre of economic collapse. The European Union is pouring some of its funds towards researching how to chill beer really fast, The Daily Mail reports.
The makers of the Rapidcool device, London-based Enviro-Cool, claim that the product can cool beer cans and bottles to 4 degrees Celcius, or 39.5 degrees Fahrenheit, within 45 seconds.
The E.U. granted Enviro-Cool £760,000, or $1.2 million, in research funding to develop the device.
