I actually like that. How much do they cost?

It says they're competitive with the German growlers, which are ~$25.  I'd want one in hand before I made a final decision, but for now put me in the "love it" category.

Those look pretty sweet! Definitely not loaners!

Kinda like the feeling of a weaponized growler.

My only fear would be the seal. Can't recall many consumer grade metal devices with a pressure safe screw on lid.

It looks like the lids are plastic of some sort, and they have different ones available.  It seems like a great idea, but execution is everything.

I love the idea. Can't wait to see them if they make it to actual production.

They do look cool.  Plus I followed a link or two to bars in New Orleans from their site.  Thanks for that.  I'll be there in about a week.

I recommend getting out of the Quarter for beer bars...
Is that a counter-pressure bottle filler in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

Looks like a pretty cool idea. I'd like to try one out, and see how well it works.

Stone has 40oz metal growlers on their site:
http://stonecompanystore.com/store/product/1455/Growler-40oz-Kanteen/

Those are Kleen Kanteens.  KK makes a 64 oz canteen as well: http://www.kleankanteen.com/products/wide/klean-kanteen-64oz-wide.php

I have a couple of their 27 ouncers for hiking, road trips, etc. I like them quite a bit - haven't tried putting beer in them yet though...
