Although it wasn’t the absolute best in any one of our tests, the Stanley Classic Easy-Pour Growler was the most consistently adored of all the growlers we tested. Our handling panelists loved its comfy handle, which made one-handed pouring a breeze, and our brewer-tasters thought day-old beer from the Stanley tasted nearly as good as a fresh pour. It’s also dishwasher-safe, which makes cleaning easy. And the Stanley comes with volume markings, a Surgeon General’s warning about alcohol (required in some states if you want to have a growler filled by a brewery), and a lifetime warranty.

If the Stanley is a jack-of-all-trades, the Coleman Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Growler is a specialist. In our testing, it performed the best in terms of keeping drinks cold, and our tasters rated it second best (by a hair) at keeping beer fresh and fizzy. But our handling panelists found the Coleman awkward to carry and pour from, thanks to its small handle. And it’s missing many of the extras—like volume markings and being dishwasher-safe—that add value to our top pick. We think this growler makes sense if you don’t plan to carry it around a lot, but otherwise the Stanley is a better all-around growler.
