My local Costco (Cal Expo in Sacramento) has the 64 oz. Insulated Beer Growler made by Reduce for $27.99 + tax. Comes in two color options, stainless finish or black. I got a black one, the black seemed to be going quick.

This isn't a sale price but is better than the price on the Costco website (2 for $59.99). Also cheaper than the current price on Amazon for the same growler ($30 +$4 shipping). YMMV, this is the first time I've seen them in store this season but appears to be cheaper than they have been in the past bast on prior posts.

Link to the 2 pack on Costco website:

To keep beer from my local brewery cold until I can drink it or get it home to the fridge. They sell glass growlers at most breweries but I'm a beverage container snob Stick Out Tongue plus glass breaks. It would also keep other liquids cold but, I got it for beer. Box also says keeps liquid hot for up to 12 hours so, coffee, tea, soup also.

my local place won't fill these only the ones they sell with their name on them just fyi. I wonder why lol. they say it's a legal issue you will have everywhere at least in California.

It's hit and miss with cold drinks. Times vary. I was able to get this filled multiple times at Stone Brewery in San Diego, CA

My local one will fill any growler that is 32, 64 or 128 oz. as long as it does not have another brewery's logo on it and even then, if you cover it with tape, they said it is ok. In other words, their logo or no logo is ok, another brewery's logo not ok, unless covered.

I have heard of some breweries taking the position that it has to have their logo on it. Not sure if this is them not understanding the CA growler law and erring on the side of caution or if the other breweries arent understanding and taking a risk in filling blank growlers. I would just check with your local brewery before buying if you have one in mind, just to be safe.

Edit : Here is a Sac Bee article on the growler fill law. Track 7, mentioned in the article, is the brewery I typically go to BTW.

Hey, your local Costco is my local Costco! Hope they still have some. But, my girlfriend bought me one the generic stainless steel growlers and have had pretty good success getting places to fill it (including Track 7 as well, delicious!). I don't have any gripes with mine, but is this much better than the regular stainless steel growlers?

Depends what you want to use it for, I have a non insulated and its fine for filling it and putting it in the fridge relatively quickly. You want to make sure yoy keep fresh beer cold so it doesn't spoil. So if you were taking it camping or on a picnic, boating, etc... where you couldn't have it refrigerated for hours on end, the insulated growler should keep it cold and fresh much longer (upto 48 hours according to the box)

Actually had this in my career at Costco yesterday... and put it back. Couldn't justify $30 for a very rare pub run, and have way too many thermoses already :-/. Love the look, though. FWIW, my Costco also had a 2-pack of 40oz thermoses, looked nice, for I think $40 or so.
