According to reports from our top men—the ManCan is changing the way people drink beer. No, it’s not being launched into space, or dispensed via arcade machine or even plumbed into your house. No, the way the ManCan is changing craft beer is by holding carbonation pressure, locking out air and keeping beer brewery-fresh much longer than any counterpart, or so say the makers of the ManCan.
Recently, the ManCan 128, a full 128-ounce container that fits in the door of your fridge, launched on Kickstarter and was fully funded within a week after the campaign began. The Original 64-ounce keg-style growler has been on the market for more than three years and has become a popular alternative to the traditional growler.
The ManCan 128 was designed to transport craft beer and preserve the beer to the standard and quality the brewer intended. Other than for craft beer, the ManCan can be used to serve a number of different beverages including wine, mixed cocktails, coffee, tea and kombucha. The ManCan 128 has a full CO2 pressure regulator that keeps beer brewery-fresh for the life of the beer, and will connect with both CO2 and nitrogen cartridges, making the ManCan an extremely versatile product.
“I originally designed the ManCan to condition, transport and preserve my homebrew,”noted Kevin Lehman, co-founder and creator. “But with the growing craft beer industry and the need for superior packaging, I knew that putting my designs on the market would benefit other craft beer enthusiasts.”
