Why Offering a Custom Beer Bucket is a Good Marketing Idea:

Not only can you use them for cooling beers but you can also use them for other beverages such as soda, juice, water, and liquor. This means extended brand exposure as the branding on the body of the bucket is on full display every time the customer uses their marketing gift.
