The BIERSAFE installation


Almost as easy as drinking beer

There are 3 ways to install the beer safe in your garden (Our tip: use a hand auger)

With the help of a hand-auger you can drill the convenient hole independently. But for that you need a drill extension to 115 cm drilling depth, because standard drills stop at 80cm depth.

This effective version takes only 20-30 minutes and presupposes a normal nature of the ground. The drill also works through stony and tight soil with roots. Thicker stones can be loosened and removed with the wobble-technique (strongly wobble the shaft while twisting and drilling). To relieve the first twists of the hand drilling, the drilling person can stand on a podium (for example a reverse beer crate) to have a better drill contact pressure. Furthermore a wheel barrow for the ca. 50kg earth excavation should be available. Afterwards press the underground tube in the drilled hole. Do it with slight to medium pressure (don’t do it with force). If the ground is tight or clayey, remove more earth from the side walls. After you sank in the underground tube, fill possible outer gaps with earth. Don’t forget the coverage!

Option: Borrowing a hand-auger (only possible within Germany)

We lend the auger together with the extension for the independent installation of the BIERSAFE. Order it without complications and after the use just send it back to us.

Borrowing - How it works
  1. Next to the desired BIERSAFE the client also buys a hand drill (used and well maintained) with a T-bar extension inclusive.

  2. Shipping (via DHL) of the BIERSAFE and drill to the customer (Keep the packaging/box in any case)

  3. After receiving the product: Customer drills the BIERSAFE hole

  4. After sinking the BIERSAFE: Disclaimer of the drill purchase by the customer (written via email, fax, letter) MORE INFORMATION

  5. Reuse the original packaging and stick the provided retour label on it

  6. Transfer the retour package to DHL

  7. After receiving the retour package: Refund of the drill purchasing price minus rental fee(charge depends on loan period; see charge list)

Rental fee

The charges for the hand drill are based upon the loan period.

  • 1-7 days = 25 €

  • 8-14 days = 30 €

  • 15 days and more = right of rescission becomes void and the drill passes into possession of the client

The loan period starts/ends at the day of the delivery referred to DHL – shipment tracking.

Ask for the service of the drilling from a specialist (for example gardening and landscape building, well driller or fence builder). Mention the required size of the hole in any case: Diameter: 20cm, depth depending on the model (60 - 115 cm). The price for this service should be negotiated individually in advance to avoid expensive surprises.

With the spade dig a hollow which will be filled up around after the use of the BIERSAFE. The hollow should be 115 cm deep at the deepest spot (depending on the variant). Because of the high excavation volume the hollow involves a bigger effort for the client.

Tips & Tricks


The BIERSAFE is in season all year round!

With a few simple tips and tricks, you can literally get the best out of your BIERSAFE, and not just in the summer.

It is summer and very hot?

  • Location: shadow place!

  • Just cool down with some ice!

  • Wet the immediately surrounding soil generously with water (about 3-5 large watering cans).

  • Direct watering of the earth pipe shaft is also possible. However, please note that the water may only seep away very slowly through the perforated cylinder base.

  • For an optimal result, use the night cooling effect and load the BIERSAFE the evening before!

All this supports the cooling effect on very hot days!

The three lower levels of the BIERSAFE can stay loaded even in frosty times. If it gets too cold to leave the beer crate outside, the BIERSAFE offers protection from the cold.

The frame can be spray-washed with water without any difficulty. To clean the underground tube, simply take a camp cloth, bind it around a broom stick and wipe out the pipe. If necessary suck dammed cleaning water out with the help of a drill pump or a wet / dry cleaner.

Tip: A rusting on the crown cap can occur, if the bottles are stored in the BIERSAFE for a longer period (>four weeks). This doesn’t do any harm to the inside of the bottle.
