Full Review 

The Miir Stanless Steel Insulated Growler Bottle  is one of the most functionally useful growlers on the market today, combining a robust design while keeping the weight down in order to make this one of the strongest contenders for your ‘fancy’ growler choice.

At 2lbs unfilled, it is one of the lighter growlers you can buy. It doesn’t come with the bells and whistles of some other stainless steel growlers, but that makes it feel much more rugged and less delicate – essential for when you’re pushing through a forrest trying to find a good clearing for your tent.

The growler is double walled, meaning no condensation on the outside of your container and that means it won’t get your beer all skunked if you leave it out in the sun (within a reasonable time anyway. We’d suggest a max of an hour in direct sunlight.)

The lid is a clamp-style system, which Miir says keeps cold things cold for more than a day and hot things hot for more than eight hours.  Remember, you’ll want to take this thing camping so a brew of coffee first thing in the morning after drinking four pints of beer might be a good shout.

That being said, we at beergrowler.net prefer screw lids. Yes, they are more fiddly and have an annoying habit of getting lost, but we find they tend to keep carbonation where it should be – in your beer. Not everyone agrees, but that’s out experience from years of beer growler experience.

The growler is stamped at the bottom with the government verbiage, so you don’t need to buy a sticker to get it filled up legally in some states.

It comes in black, silver and baby (sky?) blue.

As an added perk, the company gives some of its proceeds to a good cause. In its own words:

“Miir invests proceeds from every growler to provide one person in need with access to clean water. To prove their impact they include a coded bracelet that unveils GPS coordinates and photos of the well project you help build.”

We highly recommend this growler. It’s not a day-to-day one, but its robust design makes it absolutely perfect for taking your craft beer or real ale with you outdoors.

It’s around US$50 on Amazon now depending on the color you want, which for something of this build, seems cheap at twice the price.
