Do any of the shipping companies xray? Same with airlines...I'd be worried the SS would raise a flag and warrant inspection...worker opens the as growler...beer ruined. I know when in was flying from Portland to San Diego I checked through 4 3gal kegs that were empty/open when the xray machine wasin the lobby. I watched the TSA freak out and open my bags. I was watching and told them they were open and empty. No biggie...but a full SS growler could be filled with anything from their perspective...I'm too scared to try it and I see their view point. Same with shipping. Red flag. As for MikeTen he must be an internet anonymous tough guy. There's no way he'd say this to a brewery owner face to face. especially to tell them he called the ABC in to root through their business because he perceives they're not moving fast enough on his abritary timeline. Evilc... where did you order a blank SS growler from?
