Some locals were able to enjoy a cocktail with the Founder Ryan Grepper on Friday, as well as grab their own Coolest Cooler.

A 'Coolest PDX Pickup Party' was held in downtown Portland, where backers of the cooler were able to pickup their very own Coolest Cooler and mingle with the Founder who is also a Portland native.

The Coolest became the highest funded Kickstarter project of 2014, raising more than $13 million.

The cooler is full of fun features, like a bluetooth speaker, USB charger, bottle opener and high-speed blender, and much more.

"I'm so grateful for all of our backers that they supported this project, because frankly with crowdfunding, this would not have existed without them," said Grepper. "It solves all of these other problems that sometimes you don't even realize you had until suddenly you say oh like there's a knife right where I need it."

A total of 60,000 backers helped make the Coolest Cooler possible. The product is now being shipped to them.

Grepper said he plans to unveil a new invention soon.
