The canteen is one of the most quintessential items to take on any camping trip. It has a very simple but very valuable function, namely to keep your cold drinks cold, and your warm drinks warm. But, just because it is one of the most popular pieces of camping equipment, it doesn’t mean that it is useless in everyday life to us normal non-tent dwellers.

If you don’t have the type of coffee you like at your office, or work at a place where you don’t have the necessary facilities to even prepare it, the best solution would be to make it just the way you like it at home and pour it into your canteen. That way, it will stay warm for quite a while and you can simply take it with you and bring it out whenever you feel like you need the extra little dose of caffeine. If a cooler beverage is more to your liking, then the ideal drink would probably be a nice cool canteen of home-made lemonade, perfect for picnics, outings, or honestly just about anywhere.


But what if you don’t want coffee or lemonade, what if you would prefer a different type of cold beverage, what if the drink in question could possibly be found in a bar, and could come in a can or a bottle, and was maybe even slightly alcoholic? Is there such a drink, and could any canteen possibly keep it at the ideal drinking temperature?

Yes and yes. If you are in fact looking for a way to store your beer in order to both keep it at a perfect drinking temperature and stop it from losing its carbonation, then your best bet would be to get yourself a Klean Kanteen growler, since it is reputed to keep your drinks cold for up to 40 hours.

The Klean Kanteen growler is a product specifically made to be able to properly store drinks that would otherwise lose their taste if not for the insulated and pressurised design of the canteen itself. All of the maintenance that is needed is to simply wash it out before putting in a new drink and you won’t even feel a slight difference in the flavour.

On top of it all, since they’re made out of stainless steel, these containers are very sturdy, as well as allowing it to keep out toxins and germs. This means that it is a far better reusable option that the plastic bottles and much more durable than the glass ones.
