The Keg Cap is easily the most exciting accessory in the micro-brew industry. It turns your DrinkTanks® Growler into a personal, portable Keg. This product is custom designed for DrinkTanks Growlers.
This interchangeable cap can be used on our Classic 64 oz Growler and our Juggernaut 128 oz Growler.
We had two things in mind during design:
1). Create a method to preserve the life of the beer after filling the DrinkTanks Growler by having the option to inject CO2.
2). A method to dispense the beer without opening the growler.
*Use your Standard Cap for transporting your DrinkTanks Growler. Add the Keg Cap after you pour your first beer. Cheers!


My Story:
Have you ever found that beer that you just could not get enough of? I’m not talking about the college days of swilling back gallons of some filthy cheap pilsner while swinging your shirt around your head. I am talking about the great beer that is likely to be from a microbrewery that may not even sell in the store. Well, if you have one such beer you know the pain of buying beer in glass growlers. You also know the pain and frustration with said beer losing carbonation and getting warm way too quickly. Well, my beer drinking men and women of the world I am happy to tell you that those days are now over. DrinkTanks heard your pitiful cries as you sipped warm flat beer and they set out to save you.
I was first introduced to DrinkTanks while walking around the Outdoor Retain show in Salt Lake City. The booth was not enormous or gaudy but it was drawing a pretty good crowd. I stepped over to investigate and was instantly impressed. I swapped cards with the booth staff and went about my day. I later arranged for a few test models to be sent out for review.
When the DrinkTank Growlers arrived I was pretty excited. I had a trip to Portland planned and there is no shortage of great microbrew beers to sample in that area. The DrinkTank growlers were going to get some use for sure!
After sampling some great beers I set my sights on a hazelnut porter. I am a dark beer fan and this porter was definitely one that I wanted to bring home. So, I asked the good man behind the bar to please fill my growler. When I set it on the bar he laughed a little and was instantly curios as to where I had gotten it and who made it. “Why, DrinkTanks of course” I said, and handed it over.

I sat and watched as that sweet nectar filled this massive growler and was more than eager to get back home.

At the house I attached and pressurized the Keg Cap and grabbed a glass. Now was the moment of truth!

I was both surprised and a bit disappointed as the beer flowed effortlessly out of the attached tap. The disappointment came at the amount of foam that filled the glass. I have to say that I was not very impressed. I was sure that I must have done something wrong and after re reading the instructions I had done just that. I had attempted to fill the glass slowly and thus cased the foam. In the instructions it clearly tells you to open the tap all the way. Subsequent attempts to fill glassed were far more successful.
The Keg cap does have a bit of a learning curve and you must take special care follow the instructions to achieve the best results. To use this accessory you must first empty 12 oz of beer from the growler. It is because of this that my opinion is the Keg Cap is only really practical with use on the 128 oz Juggernaut. If you don’t want 128 of beer the 64 oz growler is still going to do a great job of keeping your beer cold and holding in the carbonation, it is worlds above that of the traditional glass growler.
That said let’s talk about the DrinkTanks ability to keep beer cold. Here are some pictures that I took after letting these tanks sit full of ice water for 24 hours. I was amazed to see that after sitting on my counter for one full day that not only were they still cold, but, they still had ice!

As you can see the DrinkTanks do their job very well.

You will not be disappointed with these great products.

What can be done better?
I could not find a single thing that I felt needed immediate attention. The products preform as advertised and are very practical for more than just beer. These growlers can hold everything from grandma’s chicken soup to grandpa’s cough medicine. Fine job DrinkTanks!

I give the DrinkTanks products tested above a solid 5 stars.
