My brew setup finishes by putting beer in 24oz plastic beer bottles like these:
I like them because they take up barely more space than 12oz bottle (fridge space is PREMIUM) and are less destructable than glass. They're not a pleasure to drink out of though and if I'm not splitting one and drink from the bottle the beer can get warm on a hot day.
I'm looking for the perfect beer transport vessel for on board beer consumption under sail. Ideally it should be:
1: A pleasure to drink out of, adding to the experience.
2: Be somewhat durable. Thick glass (like a pint glass) is okay. Fine thin glass is not! Must survive a tip-over.
3: Have insulating properties or at least pre-chillable
4: Either a wide non-slip base or fit in a standard drink holder
5: A lid like a tankard would be especially cool for those stormy days, but not required
Stainless commuter coffee mugs come to mind, but fail the #1 criteria.
All entries welcome!
