A good idea with the CO2 serving top; and blocks light. I don’t think it addresses oxygen issues/oxidation that most growlers have, does it? It certainly is a a few steps in the right direction.
They claim that addressing exactly those issues is the whole point of the concept.
From a news story on their site:
>Besides blocking light, the Bräuler uses a dimpled bottom–just like on a can–and an extra-tall cap to hold pressure and keep beer fresh. Glass growlers, if they’re pumped free of oxygen and counter-pressure filled, will stay pressurized too, of course, just not if they’re accidentally dropped. A planned tap-handle add-on will let you dispense beer from the Bräuler without breaking the pressure seal. That revolutionary idea is taking a bit of finessing, with CO2 cartridges and one-way valves, all complicated by the fact that different types of beers are best served under different pressures.<
