WJ Tested: DrinkTanks Juggernaut 128 oz Growler Review

By WAVEJourney

What is one of the best road trip travel accessories we have tried and tested? It’s the Juggernaut by Drink Tanks. This is a 128 oz stainless steel, double wall, vacuum insultated growler! A personal keg for craft beer lovers.

Wherever WJ travels – especially if we’re on a roadtrip – we love to check out the local craft beer scene. Nowadays it is easy to find plenty of pubs, micro-breweries and growler fill stations serving up craft brews, and as we like to feel like a local in new destinations, we do our best to drink what the locals do.

Recently, we tried and tested the Juggernaut on road trips through British Columbia and Oregon, and found it the best way to get a growler fill to take back to our lodging for taste testing.

Favorite aspect of the Juggernaut?

  • Beer was kept cold (even though the Juggernaut was too big to fit in the mini-fridge) for at least 24-hours.

Least favorite aspect of the Juggernaut?

  • The empty weight of the Juggernaut is already significant (3.5 lbs) thanks to the quality material it is made from. Then you add another 8.35 lbs to fill it with liquid… well, that is a work out.

Pros:

  • The cap is excellent in retaining the freshness of the beer. And, it keeps hot beverages hot for up to 12 hours – that’s a lot of coffee, tea, or hot water. The handle is big enough to get a good grip and easy pouring – no spills with this.

Cons:

  • The little black plastic handles are flimsy and not so easy to grip.
