is teaming up with Portland’s GrowlerWerks to give away a breakthrough in beer growler technology—the arrival of the uKeg. Born out of the need for a pressurized CO2-dispensed beer growler that would actually WORK, the uKeg began with an astoundingly successful Kickstarter campaign that raised more than $1.55 million, proving the passion and devotion of the craft beer community for a new breed of growler.
The uKeg functions with simple, food-grade CO2 cartridges to keep beer from your local taproom both fresh and pressurized for an extended period by limiting the contact of oxygen with the liquid. It can be used to dispense beer straight into the glass under variable pressure, and can also be put away in the refrigerator to keep beer fresh for future consumption. Cleaning is as simple as washing out the interior of the stainless steel growler before filling it with another 64 ounces of beer. For a deeper look into our own testing of the uKeg, check out this new feature. To see the uKeg in action, you can also watch the operational video below.
Paste has 10 complete uKeg systems to give away, all of which are branded with the Paste logo. These are the only Paste-branded uKeg systems in existence, so enter now for a chance to snatch one up for yourself. They’re sure to impress your beer geek friends down at the local growler shop.

Contest will end on Tuesday, Sept. 12. Entrants are restricted to the United States and Canada.
