Default Growler tap

Anyone ever use a growler tap for handled 2 liter swing-top growlers like this one:

I believe it works simply by pumping air into the bottle. I'm not thinking of using it to keep the beer fresh and carbonated, like a real CO2 system. I'm more thinking of it as just a novelty when I bring a growler of my homebrew to a party. Sure, I could just pour it into glasses, but how cool would it be to dispense it from a tap! Sort of pricey, but my wife asked if I'd like this for my birthday.

looks pretty sweet. I would like to hear how those work. That'd be great to bring my homebrew to family.

Bottomline, I need to make more beer.

One of my friends has one and she loves it. It really is attractive, too.

I think it's kind of a PITA, though. I remember thinking, why doesn't she take that damn thing off so I can pour myself a beer?
