This isn’t the first time that DrinkTank has used the crowdfunding method for its projects. Back in 2013, the company launched a campaign on Kickstarter for its 64oz Classic Growler. During its time on the platform, the project raised well over its $30,000 goal ($236,772) from 1,959 backers.
Now DrinkTanks has launched a crowdfunding initiative its two new products – the 128oz Juggernaut Growler and auto-regulating keg cup, Kegulator. The company notes that both products offer the same beer-preserving technologies as their Classic Growler and Keg Cap, but are “twice the fun.”
Features of the Juggernaut include:
- Interchangeable caps for transport, charging and dispensing
- Dual bail closure prevents liquids and Co2 from escaping your growler by holding up to 60 psi
- Durable polymer handle and lids
- 128 oz (1 gallon) vessel can also be used for homebrewing beer and kombucha
- Food grade 18/8 stainless steel will not retain or impart odor or flavor
- Double wall vacuum insulation prevents vessel from sweating
Explaining the Kegulator, the DrinkTank team stated:
“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 does the following:
- Determines exact carbonation with psi gauge
- Force carbonate from 0-40 psi with adjustable dial
- Its purge valve keeps oxygen out
- Used with 16g-74g CO2 cartridges
More importantly: It is compatible with 64oz and 128oz DrinkTanks growlers.
Revealing why backers should help fund its growing company, the team noted:
