Vacuums are pretty cool. They allow us to rid our favorite chairs of ungodly cat hair (cats belonging to our girlfriends, not ourselves), they allow us to determine the speed of light for use in mathematical equations, and they allow us to keep our tasty beverages cold--or hot!--for hours. To complement their vacuum insulated beer growlers Hydro Flask has also created this line of vacuum insulated True Pints.
The 16-ounce glasses primed for backyard BBQs, hot days at the beach, or a night by the fire are Hydro Flask's fusion of the superior* insulating performance they established with their water bottles, and the look and feel of a traditional glass pint. The company says they've even designed True Pint lips to feel like you're drinking from a glass rather than a puffed rail of metal. The lip also has a slight interior angle to facilitate a smoother pour and better release of your brew's aromatics. And unlike pint glasses, True Pints are stackable without risk of sticking or shatter.
Hydro Flask uses 18/8 stainless steel in True Pint glasses, which should impart no metallic or other residual taste. The double wall vacuum insulation also prevents the beer sweats (at least on the glass, your body is on its own) and can keep other drinks, such as margaritas, smoothies, and milkshakes, cold, frothy, and frozen for the duration of their enjoyment too. Like other Hydro Flasks, True Pints are just as suitable for keeping hot drinks hot as they are the cold ones cold.
*I say this from personal experience. My friend Cornelius' 40-ounce Hydro Flask filled with ice and water routinely holds its chill for over 24 hours.
