GrowlerWerks Introduces uKeg Infuser, Ball Lock Cap and Matte Black Finish

GrowlersWerks, the Portland-based company behind the runaway growler hit the uKeg is introducing two new accessory products and a new sheen to the current growler lineup. The new GrowlerWerks uKeg Ball Lock Cap was a big hit at the recent 2018 Homebrew Con in Portland, this adaptor inspired by homebrewers requests allows you to pipe in your own CO2 gas system rather than the uKeg’s standard cartridge. The other advancement is an infuser unit to drop into the uKeg filled with special ingredients to infuse your beer in the growler from dry hops to orange peel or wood chips.

GrowlerWerks also announced a new Matte Black uKeg to the lineup, this comes after the origina shiny stainless steel and copper versions and then the more recent black-chrome version. The four different uKeg looks offer diversity for personal taste or differentiating growlers and beers easily.

The uKeg infuser allows beer lovers to flavor a batch of beer in the stainless-steel, vacuum-insulated vessel. Filled with oak chips, coffee beans, citrus or other fruit flavors and attached to the bottom of any uKeg cartridge sleeve it can easily infuse finishing flavors into beer. It can also be used to flavor cocktails and other craft beverages.

Getting the most love from the homebrew crowd was the uKeg Ball Lock Cap. The standard interlock adapts the uKeg to existing CO2 systems, allowing people to use their own CO2 source to supply power to the uKeg instead of a CO2 cartridge. It’s ideal for force carbonating beer in the uKeg, which the mini mobile keg does in two to three days.   Learn more about these innovations on our shop page at For more information about how to force carbonate using the uKeg, watch our video here.

“Drinking what you make and sharing it with your friends is what it’s all about,” Huff said. “Homebrewers are not only passionate about beer, they’ve an entrepreneurial spirit that we love coming alongside.”
