Brewers craft beer that’s too good to pour down a drain and isn’t always available in bottles. But drain-pour often happens when beer goes flat in a glass growler. The uKeg solves that problem. This pressurized, portable growler keeps oxygen away from beer and maintains perfect carbonation for two weeks or more. An easy-to-use cap, equipped with a low-cost, food-grade CO2 cartridge, partners with a vacuum-insulated, stainless steel vessel to make the uKeg’s unique benefits possible. Drink fresh, cold, carbonated beer at your leisure and wherever you want to be. Available in half-gallon and gallon sizes. www.growlerwerks.com
