8 Best Beer Growlers on the Market

Craft beer used to be something only your weird brother-in-law was interested in, but over the past five years or so, its popularity has reached a fever pitch. Today, everyone knows the difference between a pilsner and an IPA. Local breweries are popping up all over the country and have replaced the typical bars as the cool place to hang out.

Access to craft beer is better than ever. You no longer have to trudge to a specialty market in search of something more adventurous than Blue Moon—your local grocery store now carries a dizzying array of craft selections that will make your father stand in the well-stocked aisles and ask, “Whatever happened to good, old-fashioned Budweiser?,” not knowing that half of the craft brews on the shelves he maligns are owned by Budweiser (sorry to ruin the narrative, Dad). Many stores have even put in draft lines specifically for craft beer fans to fill up their growlers; and of course, brewpubs and breweries do the same. It’s why your friends show up to parties with growlers full of craft beer instead of the case of Miller Lite they used to arrive with. Want to invest in your own growler so you can share your love of craft beer with other people (not your Dad, though)?  Check out our list of the 8 best growlers on the market to cart your precious beer around in. Read it on Parade.

Collapsible Laundry Basket 

When you were growing up, presumably not in a big city, having a washer and dryer in your home wasn't considered a badge of honor or a sign that you "MADE IT," it was just a normal thing that literally everyone had. But then you moved to the city, and after having to lug 30 pounds of laundry to the laundromat, you realized that having a washer and dryer IN-UNIT was a sign that you made it.

Truth: if you live in New York City and have a washer and dryer in your actual apartment (I'm not talking about the creepy shared washer and dryers that populate a decent amount of New York's apartment buildings), it means that what you're paying in rent is an amount that would make the folks back home keel over and die, ergo, YOU'VE MADEEEEEEEE ITTTTTTT, even if it's the world's smallest washer and dryer set that can only handle a pillow case, a t-shirt, and one sock at a time.

That said, just because you have this precious amenity that people across all five boroughs would kill for doesn't mean you live in a palace. New York City apartments—even when tricked out with basic amenities—are small. That's why this Collapsible Laundry Basket ($40) is perfect for small spaces like your fancy ass (still miniscule) apartment.  It folds out to full size, but collapses flat so you can shove it wherever you have room for it (virually nowhere, but that's YOUR PROBLEM).

Mission Critical Baby Carrier

A hilarious thing happens when certain uber-macho, alpha males have babies—they become super fucking softies, especially if said babies happen to be girls.  They start carting them around, looking after their every whim, and it's incredibly adorable.  But when these guys morph into Mr. Mom, they tend to get grief from their other bro buddies (typically the ones who are single or childless) that they've gone soft.  This Mission Critical Baby Carrier ($179) will help him keep his cred while still carting around his kid, which is literally all he's interested in now.  Sorry, boys.

First of All T-Shirt 

For my fellow people in the NNR Club (the "never not riled" club, for the uninitiated), everyone in your orbit is constantly ready for you to launch into one of your signature Julia Sugarbaker-style rants.  Typically, they're humorous and entertaining—there are few people who can truly get torqued up by mudane things like slow walkers and people who talk loudly on their phones while on mass transit.  So, for the people who start sentences with "LISTEN" or "FIRST OF ALL," for those for whom no issue is too small to have a fierce, loud opinion about, this First of All T-Shirt ($28, Thug Life Shirts) is perfect.  Wear it loud and proud.
