beer growler

Hello

I'm going to Vancouver in August. I'd like to purchase a decorative growler that has the name of a BC brewery on it. Not just the basic jug type of growler but the more decorative one like this:

shoppikebrewing.com/authentic_euro_growler.s…

I've done a bit of searching but haven't come up with anything. If anyone knows where I can purchase one of these I'd love to know where. I'll be staying in downtown, no car.

Thank you

Found a pic of their (P-49) growler. Thank you for your help. If there's any others I'd be interested to know what they are. The more unique and interesting the better. Of course it would help if the beer is top notch too. ; )

Growler culture is relatively new in BC - almost every brewery I've been to so far has their own logo on their growler, but the shapes aren't too unusual (yet). Parallel 49 (my local brewery) does sell what you're looking for, and if you're going to head there, you may as well explore the Powell Street Brewery which is a block down the street and around the corner: http://www.powellbeer.com/

In Delta BC (closer to the US border than Vancouver) is Four Winds Brewery... they're relatively new, but they do an amazing saison.

You know who you should reach out to?

CAMRA Vancouver. They'd point you in the right direction:

... and I should also mention, if you're going to be travelling to Parallel 49 and Powell Street Brewery, you'll have to drop by St. Augustine's for a paddle (4 samplers). They guys that own Parallel 49 own/manage St. Augustine's - check out the live beer menu on their website! http://staugustinesvancouver.com/

If you happen to be near central Surrey, Central city brewing has a good taproom, decent food and their line of Red Racer beers are very good, the IPA is the best of any local and the best I've tried of any BC brewery, truly an epic drop, check them out on Beer Advocate
