Cold beer, great look? Works for me, 2 years and counting

Top Line: Great looking, top performing beer growler that stands up to regular use
Good: This growler is gorgeous--I've received more compliments than I can remember. But does it work? Absolutely! I have four growlers, and none of them seal as well as this Stanley model. The insulation and seal are really top rate; I've kept a full beer fill cold and carbonated 24+ hours on a camping trip, and had refrigerated fills last 4 days with getting skunky. Cleaning is easy enough, and durability seems really solid. After two years of regular use, this sucker still pops like mortar every time I open up a fresh fill.
Bad: Not much here. It does show the occasional ding or scratch, but that's part of the charm in my book. It will bubble/spit a little bit if not kept upright, particularly on a new (and full) fill, but I haven't found any growler that doesn't (and most are way worse than this one).
Other: I received this growler as a Christmas gift two years ago, which was before the onslaught of negative reviews re: stress lines and craftsmanship. Most of these seemed like out of the box concerns, so I decided to give my growler some time to see if any issues popped up. While I have the same stress sign on the latch as other reviews, I have not experienced any long term defects after two years of regular (at least weekly) use. To me, this product is worth every penny of the $30 my wife spent on it. YMMV.
