I assume that you could run the reefer unit in reverse to keep the beer warm...its been so freaking cold that a warm beer sounds better then a cold one
Usually the alcohol content in beer was enough to prevent freezing when the beer was shipped in insulated boxcars - but not always.Guess the trunk of my car doesn't count as "insulated"

When Ontario Midland Railroad began, one of its significant customers was Spartan Beverage in Webster. They accounted for 252 carloads in the shortline's first year. Unfortunately, the beer distributor had been at odds with the village about a proposed warehouse expansion, and upon losing that battle had purchased land in Henrietta for a whole new facility. OMID was told "If we had known how much of an improvement you folks would be over the service we had been getting from Conrail, we probably would have found a way to stay here. But it's too late to change back now."
