About this project
Two years ago we set out on a quest to solve flat beer. With little more than starry eyes and a few prototypes we launched our first Kickstarter campaign. While we didn't reach our campaign funding goal, we decided to offer pre-orders to our backers, and TrailKeg was born.
We have had great success with the 64oz TrailKeg pressurized growlers, however as we've connected with new customers along the way, one message has been consistent, make it bigger!
You asked for it. We delivered. The TrailKeg Gallon
Now you can take fresh craft beer or homebrew to a party, to the woods, to the beach, and it will stay cold for 24 hours.
Not only does the gallon introduce a new size, but we're also introducing improvements like a carrying handle, and dual stage regulator.
TrailKeg is a vacuum insulated, pressurized growler that keeps beer cold and carbonated.
It features a removable dual stage regulator for accurate and consistent pressure, a standard ball lock liquid out connection, and pressure vent.
The TrailKeg lid is where the real magic happens. It keeps CO2 in, oxygen out, and allows you to get the beer out through the ball lock without opening the lid.
The TrailKeg lid is modular. This means TrailKeg can connect to equipment you already have.
- Have a Yeti or RTIC growler? The TrailKeg lid will make it a pressurized growler.
- Have a keezer or kegerator? The TrailKeg will connect to it.
- Want to fill your TrailKeg gallon directly from a keg? You can do that.
The TrailKeg regulator is a dual stage regulator, meaning you get accurate and consistent pressure throughout the life of the cartridge. It can be disconnected from the TrailKeg lid without the growler or cartridge losing any pressure.
This means you can use one regulator on multiple TrailKeg units.
- Dual Stage (for accurate and consistent pressure)
- Double Sealing (Lid and regulator seal when disconnected)
- 1psi to 20psi pressure range
- Supports threaded 16g CO2 cartridges
The TrailKeg gallon growler features a double wall vacuum insulated design made of 18/8 stainless steel.
- 18/8 Stainless Steel
- Double Wall Vacuum Insulated
- Stays cold for 24 hours
- Available in black and stainless steel
In case you hadn't already come up with some awesome ideas for how to use your TrailKeg, here's some starter tips.
Growler laws vary by state and some states limit the maximum growler size to 64 ounces. Check out this great resource from the Brewers Association to learn more about growler laws in each state.
The first prototypes of both the gallon growler and lid have been built and tested. While we have some minor tweaks in process, the core functionality is tested and working great.
Having two years to refine our lid and regulator technology has helped to ensure we can put an excellent product in your hands.
