Growlers are a great tool. You head over to your favorite brewery or growler fill station and fill up with 64 ounces of your favorite brew. The only problem is that once the beer goes into an unpressurized container it starts to go flat and it will only last a few days at most. With the Ukeg growler you pressurize it with a CO2 cartridge and you can hold your precious brew for much longer. They're expensive but if you love growlers then it's a must have. You can also save a good amount of money by just getting a standard growler at your favorite fill station.
