Thanks to HBF Reader Dan for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

YUKON GROWLERS Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Beer Growler or Water Bottle - Cold for 24 Hours or Hot for 12 Hours - 64 OZ

64 oz Yukon Growler.  Stainless steel, double wall, vacuum insulated.  Vacuum insulation helps keep your beer or other liquid cold for a long time and also, typically, eliminate sweating on the outside of the growler.  Made of high quality 304 stainless.

This model includes a government warning that some states require for refilling at a commercial brewery.  If you’re unsure what your state requires, double check that if it’s important to you.

Black rubberized coating works with chalk.  Lid features a silicone gasket to help keep carbonation in and prevent leaks.

3/1/17 6 AM Central: This highly rated growler is selling for $26.99. Shipping to most US addresses is also free with Prime Membership or a qualifying order. Price, shipping and availability can change quickly.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.  See Recent Amazon Finds and our Amazon Fillers Resource Page to help you put together an order that qualifies for free shipping.

from Dan: “I recently purchased one and it is well made and keeps beer cold and carbonated for a long time. At $26.99 and free shipping with prime, it is a great deal.
This growler was recently reviewed in Craft Beer & Brewing magazine Notes: The matte-black finish and cord-attached lid of the Yukon growler gave it a unique look, and while we were nervous at first about the rough feel when tightening it, upon opening it we were excited by the exuberant carbonation. The growler and lid felt sturdy, and the ability to write on it with chalk adds a certain element of hipness for those who care about aesthetics as much as the beer itself.”
