Hands On: Portland Growler Company Hand Made Growlers


A hands on review of hand made Portland Growler Company Growlers.  Here’s a closer look and some thoughts.

The box

 The swing top closure is very similar to other swing top growlers I own.  It’s ceramic with a rubber seal.  It feels substantial and closes well.  No leaks and mine kept carbonation well.

A look inside

“The gang” as I call them.  From left to right: Grigri in Satin Grey, Grigri Growlette in Gloss Blue, Sprocket in Matte Black

Each growler has this indentation mean for the swing top closure to go down into.  I have found that it will close successfully even when this is not lined up.  I’m guessing it’s best to go ahead and line it up though.

Several different colors, designs, finishes and handle styles are available.  This picture shows the handle of the Grigri in Satin Grey.

Here’s the Sprocket in Matte Black.

Here is the flip top removed

Close up

A look behind the scenes of the Portland Growler Company.  These are hand made by real people in Portland, Oregon.

These growlers are hand made, functional works of art.   They look great and function well.  I’m glad to have these in my growler collection.

A variety of Portland Growler Company Growlers are available via uncommongoods…
