Has anyone seen this? It looks promising.

I wonder if we'll be able to bottle condition in them.



from the website:

DON’T BREAK YOUR BEER!℠

Introducing the world’s first indestructible, lifetime-guaranteed, stainless steel modular growler system℠

The Bräuler™ is…

A tough-as-nails, customizable, stainless steel modular growler system for breweries, brewpubs, beer bars, home brewers, home consumers, and grocery retailers. Compared to standard glass growlers it is…


Superior to glass:

Durable and safe: food grade steel won’t shatter, chip, or crack
Lighter weight for shipping and owner transport

Better for Your Beer!℠:

Wide (1.75”) mouth easy to fill and clean
100% light-proof; deep-thread cap holds carbonation and freshness longer
Unique machined exterior collar receives multiple accessories, including basic cap, handle, bail top, and patented CO2-chargeable draft cap system™ (in development)


More Sustainable:

100% recyclable as a desirable metal
No loss due to breakage. Life cycle is longer than glass
Cools faster, cutting energy use (Brauler II, in development, will be double-walled)


More Innovative:

Low-cost, interchangeable cap system facilitates counter-pressure filling, pressurized dispense through a tap-cap (in development), customizable on-demand brewery labeling, and grocery store readiness
Perfect for car camping and backpacking. Carabiner ready!


More Affordable:

Cost is competitive with traditional German growlers and Kleen Kanteen
If you manage to break this container, we’ll replace it at no charge


Customizable:

Owners may upload laser-etched or ink-jet designs onto cap or sides
The BräuMaster Series™ features special finishes and handle treatments
QR-coded cap labels link owners with smartphones to brewery sites online and into social networks like Twitter, FaceBook, and The Zythos Society™
Interchangeable, label-ready cap discs are made of customizable, removable, collectible, Forest Stewardship Council-approved wood veneer

Looks cool, I like this part.
and a machined exterior collar that's compatible with multiple accessories, include a basic cap, handle, bail top, and even a CO2-chargeable draft cap system.

Force carbing!

"Cost is competitive with traditional German growlers and Kleen Kanteen "

that means it should be around $20-25, right?
