I’m not big on advertising products online. I don’t like to use this space for reviews, in fact, I don’t like to do reviews at all. I don’t write anything on Yelp or on travel review sites. I don’t write up reviews for hotels or Uber drivers. It’s just not my thing. I like to keep my online profile strictly about my general thoughts about the word.

But I think I may change my policy on that, at least for a little while, because I got some amazing gifts for my birthday, and I want to spend a little time raving about each one of them. So, for the next few posts, I’m going to detail each gift, one at a time, and give some free press to these companies that did such awesome jobs crafting new devices.

But first, a raving review to my friends, who knew me (and the gadget world) well enough to get me really awesome gifts that I’ll be using for years. You’re all great, you know who you are.

Okay, so first up are the growler chillers from Growler Chill (I know, the device matches the company, convenient).

These things are, in a word, awesome. Just awesome. What they do is they allow you to keep your growlers fresh and cold and to pour each glass out fresh from the tap. Everyone who reads this knows I like a good beer at the end of the day. My job is tough, and then I come home and blog, which takes more time than most people realize. What I need is a glass of my favorite beer right there waiting for me for when I’ve finished all my work.

I don’t know how many times I’ve had to settle for a stale or flat beer or even, heaven help me, warm, stale, flat beer. I’ll drink it, but that’s an evening ruiner if ever there was one.

I could, of course, buy cans of the everyday schlock most of this country drinks, but I’d rather drink water than that stuff. In my opinion, it’s just a waste of money. I could, and do, buy small bottles of the microbrews I prefer, but that gets pricey, and by the end of the month, I can’t always afford to buy another six pack to get through that tough week before payday.

So, for years now, I’ve been in a bit of a conundrum, and I didn’t have a real solution for that conundrum until the Growler Chill growler chiller. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration that it’s saved my freaking life. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but not much of one. I’ve been using it for the last week and it really has improved my quality of life markedly.

Basically, I’m saying: go get one.

Okay, that’s enough about this gift. Check back in tomorrow, and I’ll have more to say about the others! As always, thanks for reading!
