Default Have 2 Growlers, What Do I Do with Them?

I was given two 1/2-gallon growlers with original lids and told that, as a homebrewer, I'd really appreciate having them.

What do I use them for? I don't keg, so I can't use them to transport jugs of beer from the keg. Growlers, as far as I know, aren't made to take the pressure of carbonating beer in the bottle.

Suggestions?

Does concord have any pubs that fill growlers? It's the cheapest way to drink pub beer.

take them to your local brewery/bar/brewpub and get them filled with delicious beer.

+1 on using them for starters. They are ideal for that once you can find a rubber stopper that fits the spout.

I find that 12 oz molotov cocktails just don't have the WHOOMF that I'm looking for.

Now 1/2 gallon glass jugs, on the other hand...

Use aluminum foil.

Or use them as small blow off containers. I am using 1 of mine for this as the other 2 are full of local brewery beer!
