About this project
The Physical Vapor Deposition, PVD, copper finish is extraordinarily cool; here is a little information about it:
PVD coating benefits are many. PVD can provide a lifetime of protection from daily cleaning, which adds durability and value to your product. Traditional electroplating of brass, nickel, and copper finishes requires a clear coat that degrades with time and can easily tarnish or corrode. PVD requires no clear top coats that fade or dull. It is four times harder than chrome, which makes it corrosion and scratch resistant. PVD coatings surpassed 1200 hours of neutral salt spray.
Benefits of PVD technology:
· Superior Wear Resistance
· Superior Corrosion Resistance
· Superior Chemical Resistance
· Brilliant Decorative Finish
· High Hardness-2nd to Diamond
· Uniform Coating
· Will not Chip, Tarnish or Fade
· Low Maintenance
· Environmentally Friendly Process
In 2013, DrinkTanks launched a campaign to release the game-changing 64 oz Classic Growler. It was more successful than we could imagine and connected us with new friends and passionate beer connoisseurs from around the world. The design incorporated both double wall vacuum insulation to keep beverages cold and our revolutionary dual-bail cap system that is leakproof and preserves carbonated beverages, exceedingly longer than any screw cap system. We are hard at work on two incredible new products. We are excited to announce the newest additions to our lineup - the 128 oz Juggernaut Growler and our Kegulator, an Auto-Regulating Keg Cap. These offer the same beer-preserving technologies as our 64 oz Classic Growler and Keg Cap, but with twice the fun!
Kegulator: CO2 Auto-Regulating Keg Cap
This new cap includes an auto-regulating cap CO2 unit, to keep your growler pressurized, as well as a dispensing tap. The Kegulator turns your growler into a personal, portable mini keg! This incredible technology allows you to control the CO2 pressure for any beverage ranging from 0-40 psi. Home brewers can now force carbonate small batches without having to bottle condition. Kombucha lovers can enjoy full control over their carbonation. The Kegulator is compatible with both our 64 oz and 128 oz growlers.
Kegulator Evolution: The high functioning prototype in the video is transitioning into the version illustrated below for the final product, which you will receive.
DrinkTanks specializes in providing the most cutting edge beverage vessels. We focus on providing quality products that are innovative, easy-to-use, and durable. We pride ourselves in manufacturing responsibly and having a positive impact on the community. Just like our last campaign, this project cannot succeed without, YOU! Tell, EVERYONE! "Like" and "share" our project on Facebook and Twitter or email a link to your family and friends. You can even write it in the sand, in your cereal bowls, or scream it out when you go to the next brewery… every dollar helps! We deeply appreciate all of the support. Our backers put us on the map; now help take us to the MOON! Cheers! Prost! Salute! Slainte! Skal! Kanpai!
All of our products are powder coated, engraved, designed and assembled in Bend, Oregon. We’re committed to supporting our local economy, and with the help of previous Kickstarter backers, we were able to create ten new jobs in 2014! Bringing most of our production work in-house, we are also able to ensure that our products adhere to the highest quality control standards. Our goal is to create a product worthy of your beer.
All DrinkTanks' Growlers are a labor of love, each one assembled by hand in Bend, Oregon. We want all of our customers to appreciate the quality materials and workmanship that go into each growler for the ages to come. We are so convinced DrinkTanks is the highest quality product available that, barring catastrophe or cataclysmic events, we guarantee your DrinkTanks Growler against manufacturer defects for life.

Risks and challenges
During the design and manufacturing of the original 64 oz Classic Growler, our original backers would be the first to share how we learned a great deal about all the that can go wrong in bringing a product to market-the details and challenges of production are extensive. We revised and bolstered the process by strengthening our team, suppliers, relationships, and a few patents. We feel very confident we can deliver a quality product on time.
Since the earliest dialogue that brought about DrinkTanks, we continue to revolutionize the growler business. Through the experience of the earliest production two years ago, we learned how to eliminate the majority of potential risks involved with the sourcing of products, materials, and supply chain management. We are proud of the two major products we brought to the market: the 64 oz Classic Growler, and the original Keg Cap. We are looking forward to sharing our newest innovations that will continue to evolve the culture of one of America’s favorite past times.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
