I really like beer. Whether at basecamp, at the pub or at home, a tasty brew can certainly make for a relaxing time.
For me, traveling around and enjoying the delicious brews from brewpub and bars has become a pastime. Here is the issue, though: Drinking and driving. Yes you can have a beer or even two with a meal in a couple of hours at the pub. However, I want to enjoy more than that and driving home from a remote brewery with a belly full of alcohol is not a good idea.
Most places will fill a growler for you to take home. This, however, has its own set of issues. The growler is sweaty from the cold beer inside and unless you have a cooler or equivalent with you it is hard to keep it cool enough until you get to a place where you can enjoy it. Enter Hydro Flask’s Growler.
Hydro Flask’s Growler has a series of double wall, vacuum-sealed double insulated bottles that keep cold things cold for twenty four hours or more. Sixty four ounce insulated beer vessels that will keep beer cold and fresh for even the longest drive. I started using Hydro Flask products in the desert in Arizona. They are BPA free and insulated, and they are both “cool” (literally and figuratively) as well as eco-friendly. With the release of the growler, I can go to the pub or brewery, fill up with a delicious beverage, and head back home to enjoy.
I have found nothing that matches the quality of materials and function that is even close to the price. Also they have a program to give five percent back for each bottle sold to eco-friendly charities.
As for me, I am off to get some Lagunitas IPA and some Green Flash. Dinner is going to be good tonight!
