Now that most taprooms around the country have closed their doors we’ve had to get creative with how we pick up beer. While having beer delivered from our friends at Tavour, Saucey (Get $5 OFF your first order with code: HOPCULTURE), or Drizly (Get $5 OFF your next purchase with code DRIZLYDEAL) are great options we encourage you to safely stop by your local brewery and pick up some fresh beer to-go. You’ll be supporting their small business while simultaneously getting the freshest beer possible right from the source. To make sure that beer stays as cold and crisp as can be throughout the weekend we highly recommend filling up with one of these six top-of-the-line growlers.

DrinkTanks 64oz Growler


Make an investment in this perfect mini keg. The DrinkTanks 64oz vacuum insulated beer growler keeps beer cold for over 45 hours! That’s a full weekend of drinking an Almanac Bourbon Barrel Peche, Brewery Ommegang Idyll Days Pilsner, Double Nickel Weekend Warrior, or any option from our 20 Best Beers to Drink This Spring.

EcoVessel BOSS Growler


At a slightly more affordable price point, the EcoVessel BOSS Growler isn’t as sleek as the DrinkTanks cooler, but it gets the job done. Keeping beer cold for 36 hours, this carrier has a bonus removable ice, fruit, and tea infuser. This is the versatile option if you can see yourself using a growler for more than just beer.

GrowlerWerks uKeg


We’ve waxed poetic about the GrowlerWerks uKeg many times before, calling it one of the best growlers to gift for the holidays, a top choice for the adventurous beer drinker, and a perfect gift for the homebrewer in your life. This keg is always on our radar for good reason. It’s one of the only options on the market that actually keeps your beer carbonated! Its carbonation cap automatically regulates pressure (from 0-15psi) while a sight glass shows you what’s inside. This is on-the-go-draft-quality experience at its absolute best.
