Summer reminds us of some of the most important things in life. The bright sunshine, t-shirt weather, and, perhaps most importantly, spending time with loved ones. Warmer weather offers a huge variety of outdoor gatherings, from campfires to picnics at the beach. When winter eventually comes, having a hot drink that is easy to travel with is a top priority. Through these events, one particular problem tends to persist. How are you supposed to travel with your drink? 

Traditional drinkware can present problems for outdoor use. What happens if a glass shatters? What if you spill your drink moving from one place to the next? Luckily, specially crafted outdoor drinkware can solve these issues and more with style and sustainability. From wine to coffee, BrüMate offers an excellent selection of outdoor drinkware for all of your beverage needs, hot or cold.

What Makes for Good Outdoor Drinkware? 

So what makes for a great piece of outdoor drinkware? When we’re thinking about an outdoor setting, there are a number of important factors to consider. The outdoors can be unpredictable with drastic changes in temperature, the elements themselves, and plenty of opportunities to damage your drinkware. Typically, drinkware made of glass isn’t great for transportation, temperature control, or other issues the outdoors may present. 

There are a couple things to keep in mind when picking out your next outdoor drinkware piece.


Ask yourself: What kinds of activities will I be doing outdoors? What sort of beverage do I want this for? When am I planning on using my new drinkware? These questions can help you narrow down the right type of drinkware for you. 


From hikes to parties, outdoor drinkware needs to be able to handle the journey. Drinkware made of metal can be a great option for a shatter-proof experience.

Temperature Control

From sweltering summer heat to bitterly cold winds, our beverages are often affected by the temperature. A great piece of outdoor drinkware should keep your cold drinks chilled and your hot drinks warm throughout the day.


From a misplaced elbow in a crowd to a deep crack in the sidewalk, the risks for spilling your drink outdoors are nearly endless. A quality lid design can protect your drink from the little accidents that can occur when you’re having a great time outdoors.

Now that we’ve covered some of the basic qualities to look out for, let’s take a look at the top options for outdoor drinkware to suit any situation. 

The 7 Best Outdoor Drinkware Products You Need This Summer

Quality drinkware can cover many categories. Different types of beverages require different types of drinkware, with specialized characteristics to suit all of your drinking needs. Now that we know more about what makes good outdoor drinkware overall, let’s tackle some of the specifics. From tumblers to full sets, we have all of your outdoor drinkware needs covered.

The Leading Outdoor Insulated Beer Tumbler


The perfect outdoor beer tumbler can be difficult to find. How can you keep your beer chilled in the summer sun?

With its patented three-in-one design you can customize your can cooler to your liking, accommodating both 16oz and 12oz cans.

The Top Poolside Champagne Flute
