Insulated stainless growlers

Hello BT,
Looking for an insulated stainless growler. Can be brewery labeled, depending on the brewery. ;)
Blank is fine as well.

I've been doing some research and like the DrinkTanks growler and know Innocente has some available.
I also like the MiiR, EcoVessel, HydroFlask and Innate growlers.

Just wondering what people on here are using for those hiking trips, or roadtrips, in order to keep their beer cold longer.

Cheers!

Ice. :P

I like the HydroFlasks but haven't bought one yet, mostly because I never buy growlers unless I have to. I usually jsut have frozen water bottles and put other drinks, such as cans or bottles of beer, around them in my backpack (in a drybag) or cooler.

I haven't tried it, but MEC sells one from Stanley http://www.mec.ca/product/5043-395/stan ... ?q=growler as well as the one from Innate and the seemingly obscenely over-priced Kleen Kanteen. Add $5 for a membership if you don't have one.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.
Kleen Kanteen is NOT on my radar. Read about so many other good ones and KK never comes up in discussion. Innate seems ok, but not in my top 3.
Looking at MiiR, DrinkTanks (Innocente sells/uses them) and EcoVessel. Stanley is a nice option, especially for price.
Amazing how MEC prices stuff vs the same items in US (even after exchange rate).

While on my roadtrip it looks like I will have a lot of opportunities to fill growlers with high quality stuff vs lug the same beer in bottles. I will be keeping it a backpack so ice is not a good idea and neither are glass bottles. I could haul a cooler but going up a moutainside for many hours doesn't bode well for a worn body and hands.

Will update when I make a call and put in use.

Also confirmed with local Detroit spot about what they will and will not fill. Looks like I'm all good with my options so far.

Oddly, was talking to the dude from Stanley the other day. You might see some of the Stanley ones popping up at various breweries around the province.
