Hefty bags. No.
Wheelbarrows. Generally, no.
Kegs. Fine, from time to time.
Growlers. Now we’re getting somewhere.
Specifically, growlers like these...
Introducing Shine Craft Vessel Co., a new outfit out of Richmond producing limited-run, 64-ounce growlers in powder-coated stainless steel, available now.
An upgrade. That’s what this is. The kind of thing that makes your local beermonger say, “Wow, this guy’s serious. I better tell him about the triple-malted, quadruple-hopped, barrel-aged porter from Saskatoon I just got in.” Or something like that.
First, they look damn good. The initial run of 100 pieces (which arrive hand-numbered, naturally) are coated in cool colors like “municipal yellow” and “post-office blue” (makes a fine gift for your letter carrier, by the way). Secondly, they’re worry-free. They don’t break if you drop them, they’re treated to prevent any metallic aftertaste, and they’ve got deep-threaded caps so your brew stays bubbly.
This summer, they’ll start rolling out a similar line of powder-coated stainless barware like shakers and flasks.
They’ll still hold beer in a pinch.
