The DrinkTanks 64-ounce Insulated Growler beckons you to bring the party, not the cans
DrinkTanks wants you to know that the planet consumes about 200 billion aluminum cans per year – or 6,700 per second. It’s a sobering fact, one that could drive a person to drink. So, feel free! Focused on bringing the party, not the cans, DrinkTanks has a line of insulated growlers that strives to shorten the stack of cans that can circle the globe every 17 hours.
A Solid System
Adventure Pro liked the concept so much our editor tested The Classic 64-ounce Insulated Growler. After his tests, he discovered that the beauty of the product is not that its double-walled vacuum insulation maintains an internal temperature for 45 hours for cold beverages (20 hours for hot). Or that its unique stainless steel passivation process preserves taste and ensures no imparted flavors. Or even that the Double-Down closure system creates an airtight and vacuum seal. No, he emptied the growler too fast to verify temperature longevity or detect tainted flavor. But he noted that the product’s quality is obvious and the closure system is indeed solid.
The real beauty of the growler resides in the option to switch the closure system for a proprietary Keg Cap (sold separately) that turns the growler into a personal mini-keg. The Keg Cap has a tap with a CO2 injector with a regulator, which means the growler dispenses beer with the perfect amount of carbonation and pressure.
Easy to Use
The initial thought was that the assembly of the Keg Cap might require technical expertise. It doesn’t. Testing found it easy to assemble and use. www.drinktanks.com
