MAMARONECK, N.Y., Sept. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GrowlerWerks loves New York. And on Sept. 24 it will be at the Harbor Island International Beer Festival (www.hiibf.com) in Mamaroneck, New York, showing festival attendees how to keep the party flowing. Literally. The Portland, Ore., company will show East Coast beer lovers the uKeg, a vacuum-insulated, stainless steel, pressurized growler that keeps draft beer fresh, cold and carbonated for up to two weeks.
For a sneak preview, you can also see the uKeg in action between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Wednesday night at Top Hops Beer Shop on New York's Lower East Side (www.tophops.com). Like we said, GrowlerWerks loves New York.
After the festival, you can buy or fill your game-changing growler at both of Half Time Beverage's beer and cider wonderlands, located in Mamaroneck and Poughkeepsie. With more than 2,000 beer and cider selections and more than 22 drafts on tap, GrowlerWerks' partnership with Half Time is a match made in heaven -- beer- and cider-drinkers' heaven.
The uKeg was created by four beer-loving engineers who were frustrated with favorite beers going flat in glass growlers. Because pouring some of the nation's best craft beer down the drain felt criminal, they used a combined 47 years of engineering and product-design experience to create a better way to store beverages and allow people to consume them at their leisure. An easy-to-use regulator cap, equipped with a low-cost, food-grade CO2 cartridge, partners with the vacuum-insulated, stainless steel container to make the uKeg's unique benefits possible.
The uKeg is changing how -- and how often -- people enjoy craft beer. Cheers to that. The nation's best beers aren't always sold in bottles, creating the need for a growler that can keep up. The uKeg can. It's able to serve craft beer the way a brewer intended it, and in homes or on adventures. It goes wherever you go.
GrowlerWerks' pressurized growler keeps beer from becoming oxidized and, therefore, stale and flat. It helps maintain perfect carbonation from that first delicious drop to that very last pour. One beer reviewer called the uKeg a "brave, new growler." We couldn't agree more.
