Today, I’m sharing with you the 32 oz Growler from Hydro Flask, and giving you the inside scoop on some new products you’ll see in 2017. Because I’m all about making gift-giving easy. Give (or buy yourself) the growler this holiday season. And then follow it up with the companion products they’ve got coming out early next year.
First up, the Growler. While I would have preferred the 64 ounce for trips to our local breweries (Utah has award-winning breweries), the 32 ounce is nice. You see, it’s the ideal size to take along a sociable amount of beer. Great for any outing where one beer is not enough, but four is too many. And though Hydro Flask designed their 32 oz Growler for beer, it’s quite at home with most hot or cold drinks. So 32 ounces is more backpack-friendly too.
Features include their TempShield™protection, so your drinks stay hot for up to 6 hours, or cold for up to 24. Made from 18/8 pro-grade stainless steel, it’s BPA and phthalate-free. Double walls insulate, make it durable, and keep it from sweating. It’s also offered in five colors. For easy carry, there’s a handle just below the leak-proof lid.
So what would go well with this growler? How about a 22 oz or 32 oz tumbler? Both have the same TempShieldTM insulation and tough construction. For non-alcohol use, they fit in most cup holders too. And Hydro Flask topped them off with an insulated press-in lid. These lids have Honeycomb InsulationTM, for temperature (and insect) control.
But wait, there’s more! We also got hooked up with a sample of their upcoming 10 oz Hydro Flask Rocks glass. It’s also got the TempShieldTM insulation and Honeycomb InsulationTM lid. It’s short, and has a nice taper so it fits your hand well.
Together, these items can round out your beverage ware for indoor and outdoor use. We used the Growler for beer, exclusively, but it works just as well for hot coffee or iced tea. Even water. And the Tumbler became a quick favorite too. At 22 ounces, you can sip for hours. Finally, the Rocks glass is the perfect size for your favorite mixed drink, but also ideal for hot cocoa. The lids on both make sipping easy, and the chrome ring around the top adds a touch of class.
Clearly, Hydro Flask would like to be the go-to for all your beverage needs. So they continue to innovate with cool products like these. Their 32 oz Growler will see plenty of use this winter, with adult and work-friendly drinks. And when spring rolls around, the Tumblers and Rocks glasses will be available. They’ll all keep hot drinks hot, cold drinks cold, with no lingering flavors or odors. Good stuff. HydroFlask.com
I’d like to thank Hydro Flask for providing their Growler, Tumbler, and Rocks glass for our review. We’ve enjoyed them with a variety of drinks, and they never let us down.
