DrinkTanks stainless steel growler review - Mommy Scene

If you’re like me and enjoy a cold bevvy now and again, then I’m sure you’ll agree on the importance of having the proper gear on hand. There’s just something about the experience that a draught beer provides that is not the same from a bottle or can. The glass growler (more of a jug) has filled its niche well to remedy this, but I find it’s often not long after it’s been taken from the refrigerator that the beverage inside begins to warm. Unless you’re pouring 4 pints in 4 minutes, this can be less than ideal — especially for those times you want your delicious brew to go with you. Step in, DrinkTanks stainless steel growlers.

DrinkTanks stainless steel growler with double-wall vacuum insulation - Mommy Scene review

Now I’m sure most of you are familiar with the benefits of double wall vacuum insulation in stainless steel containers for travel mugs and the like. Even with a few hours of road tripping, I can expect the DrinkTanks Stainless Steel Growler to keep my liquid goodness cool and fresh. (For up to 24 hours, no less!) For me this is the main benefit of the stainless style growler, and worth the investment right off the bat. While the cost may be reasonably more than its glass counterpart, I feel the DrinkTanks 64oz Growler offers enough features to outweigh that extra cost investment. In addition to the thermal insulation, stainless steel is just plain durable. You drop it and it’s not going to shatter. A stainless steel growler may get a scratch or a ding, but it’s going to hold up over time — and keep the liquid contents cold and fresh. Partnering equally well with the durability of the steel, the handle is also sturdy with plenty of a handhold to grip.

DrinkTanks Personal Stainless Steel Growler review - Mommy Scene

Some folks find that metal potentially has an impact on the flavor of the beverage. For the amount of time I keep the drink in the container from filling to dispensing, I certainly don’t find that to be the case with the DrinkTanks Growler. Give the stainless growler a good initial rinse and you’re good to go. There’s no tinny or metallic taste to be found. Overall, I find the DrinkTanks Growler to be a joy to use and I’ve already received comments of praise wherever it’s filled or shared.

DrinkTanks Personal Growler is carbonation friendly - Mommy Scene review

DrinkTanks 64oz Growlers feature double-wall vacuum insulation, keeping your beer, cider, or iced tea cold for 24 hours and coffee or hot chocolate hot for 12 hours. Beverages remain at the right temperature with no sweating or condensation.

The leakproof design ensures your liquids stay inside your growler whether it’s bouncing around in the back of your truck or laying on its side in your fridge.

DrinkTanks Growlers are carbonation-friendly and remedy the problem of having to drink the whole thing in a day. A filled growler will keep carbonated beverages fresh for a full week, thanks to the patented add-on Keg Cap system.

These insulated growlers are made from superior materials such as high-grade 18/8 stainless steel, the same quality of steel that brewers use for their brewing tanks. Because your beverage only touches steel, there’s no leaching of flavors. DrinkTanks growlers are also easy to clean and are dishwasher safe.
