No connection with Growlerwerks here, except that I am (patiently) awaiting a 128 oz. growler. Original delivery expectations were missed, no doubt. They've kept us informed, and I'm OK with it because that's what Kickstarters are about.
"Large quality issues" doesn't cut to any chase, it just harps on some negative Amazon reviews. Is that all you have to offer, and is that why you posted this here? An actual user review would be much more useful. Anyone who finds this device on Amazon can read the reviews. Their last email update explained why they supplied Amazon, with unfulfilled Kickstarter backers still unfulfilled.
I'm looking forward to getting mine in the spring.
