The DrinkTanks Growler is a Stainless, Double Wall, Vacuum Insulated Growler. It has an optional Keg Cap that converts the growler into a mini draft keg. It’s also available in a larger gallon size. Multiple color options are available.
Back side of the product tag contains contact information for Drink Tanks in addition to some information about the growler – 64 Oz (1.9L), 18/8 Stainless Steel, Double Wall Vacuum Insulation, BPA Free and Lifetime Warranty.
The standard cap installed on the growler. Both caps have an o-ring and a double bail locking system. Remember to engage both bails. I have forgotten the side that stays on the cap and that doesn’t make for a great seal. :). When both bails are engaged the cap has a very solid seal.
Prior to installing the Keg Cap, you’re supposed to pour one glass of beer. Next remove the standard cap and install the Keg Cap. Finally give the growler a charge of CO2. The PRV lets off CO2 at 10 PSI. The instructions also say that you “You don’t need much CO2”. I find that especially true as the growler gets down to the last pint or two. If you need more CO2 at this point, just give it a light tap, don’t go until the PRV starts letting out CO2. I’ve had foaming problems when doing that. Towards the end… a light tap of CO2 is enough.

I’ve wanted this growler for a long time, since it was in the Kickstarter stage. I’m glad to finally own one. It is well built and has a great set of features. The double wall insulation means beer stays cold for longer and the personal draft keg option is very cool.
Growler Filling Tips and Tricks
Place a clean growler in your kegerator with an ounce or two of Star San in the bottom. After the growler is completely chilled, swish the Star San around to coat the inside and discard. Now you have a sanitized, cold and wet growler that’s ready to fill. The cold and wet part will help reduce foaming. Turn down the pressure on your kegerator (maybe 3 or 4 PSI) and fill using a piece of tubing on your faucet that is long enough to reach the bottom of your growler. Doing this will keep foaming to a minimum and decrease the introduction of oxygen. Cap on foam and you’re done. Related: Growler Fillers
