Before discussing our top picks, we feel it's important to note that the laws regarding growler filling, labeling, and so on vary from state to state in the U.S., so if you're planning on picking up some beer from your favorite brewery, you'll want to take a look at local regulations. You may be restricted to glass options only, for instance, or required to label your vessel with a government warning.
With that said, the TrailKeg Half Gallon and GrowlerWerks uKeg are both fine options, although the latter is perhaps slightly more finicky to use (but more lavishly styled). The former arrives with two CO2 cartridges, however, which is a nice touch. We also selected the popular Nutrichef Mini Keg, although it's somewhat frustrating that if you want the "included" insulating sleeve, you have to jump through a few hoops — it doesn't actually arrive in the box. Finally, we decided to include one add-on tap, the Spotted Dog Company Tap Dispenser System. It works with many standard, non-pressurized glass beer growlers, so if you already have one (or three or six), you'll be good to go. That is, after you buy a CO2 cartridge, as they aren't included.
