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.
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.
