The TapIt Cap screws onto a growler and prevents beer from going flat after the bottle is opened. To fill a glass, a user injects carbon dioxide from an attached canister and releases the spigot. A pressure-release valve keeps the growler from bursting. $45

"The Naked Pint: An Unadulterated Guide to Craft Beer" by Christina Perozzi, Hallie Beaune:

"The Naked Pint is a great read for anyone interested in all things beer-from beer style descriptions to cooking with beer to brewing your own beer at home. Like a Beer 101 textbook to amp up your brew IQ, if only textbooks occassionally made you laugh out loud. The authors know their stuff; they understand and convey the notion that beer can be complex without being overly complicated, and they take beer seriously but don’t take themselves too seriously. The Naked Pint is, um, revealing."
- Sam Calagione, president and founder of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and author of Brewing Up a Business, Extreme Brewing, and He Said Beer, She Said Wine

"QI XL" series I, episode 8: “Inequality”

A French book that could never be translated into German was written by Louis Pasteur, after whom the word pasteurisation is named. He was viciously anti-German following the Franco-Prussian War. After the war, the Germans discovered a new form of yeast which allowed them to store beer extremely well. It became hugely successful and annoyed Pasteur so much that he studied the science of brewing and came up with his own yeasts which made even better beer. He took his recipes to America, Belgium, the Whitbread Company and to Denmark’s Carlsberg Company, but refused to take them to Germany. He then wrote a book all about it, ordering that it should never be translated into German.
