Ot­ter­box El­e­va­tion 64 Stain­less-steel Growler $69.99, ot­ter­box.com

The stain­less-steel growler mar­ket is get­ting more and more crowded by the day, so man­u­fac­tur­ers have to de­liver new killer fea­tures to rise above the noise. Ot­ter­box is no stranger to in­no­va­tion—and they aren’t scared of man­u­fac­tur­ing chal­lenges—so they’ve sand­wiched a cop­per sleeve be­tween the in­side and out­side stain­less-steel walls of their new El­e­va­tion 64 growler to im­prove in­su­la­tion. The lid seals tight, and the growler keeps beer fresh and car­bon­ated, so this one will see more use in our reg­u­lar growler ro­ta­tion.

Cool­bot Walk-in Cooler Con­troller $329, stor­e­it­cold.com

We’re kick­ing off a project to build our own DIY walk-in cooler, in­spired by the folks at Cool­bot— their small con­troller is de­signed to fool wall-unit air con­di­tion­ers into op­er­at­ing well be­low their in­tended tem­per­a­ture zone. In the mean­time, we’ve talked to our friends who use th­ese in fullfledged com­mer­cial oper­a­tions, such as the folks at Outer Range Brew­ing in Frisco, Colorado, and they’ve re­ported bul­let­proof per­for­mance un­der chal­leng­ing con­di­tions. If you’re look­ing to build a small walk-in at home or your busi­ness, the Cool­bot is an af­ford­able and ef­fec­tive way to do it.
