    Hey CB,

    Just contact Innate and they will send you a new lid. Seems that the tolerances were off by a hair. When you put cold liquids (beer) in the growler, the plastic (in the lid) and metal covering contract at different rates causing the metal cover to spin on the plastic insert.

    Hey, CB, I've had the same issue when the growler is pressurized or chilled so the lid sucks on tight. I wonder if adding a little hex head set screw to the top would help. HMMMMMmmm...

    The main issue with it is that I can't drink that much beer fast enough while it's fresh, and I don't have any friends.

    hmmm...
    never thought about that - I just squeeze tight and twist.
    another thought would be to use a nail set to dimple the sides of the cap in a few places to add traction.

    The pressure thing made me think. I had some coffee in it when the lid stuck. Ran it under hot water for a little bit and it came right off.
    Thanks for the idea.


    Dimples might help if they went deep enough to catch whatever is underneath the metal cap.

    I also thought about trying to take the cap off and adding some super glue.

    Ok, I think we have a solution: Have 1066Vik open your growler.
    Option 2, dimples.
    Option 3, put set-screw through dimples.

    I'm gonna start with #2 since I don't a giant viking handy.

    To attempt to avoid being the snark-breaker THIS week, I am happy to announce the arrival of Ka-bar Dog's Head Utility Knife (this thing is awesome), Ka-bar chopsticks (these things are awesome!), and Ka-bar leather handle rebuild kits (hells yeah!).

    That sucks.

    I was thinking today how much I miss going to the cabin. Haven't been for a month, and probably won't be able to until January. Christmas drains the wallet dry, don't you know.
