Just got a very cool looking stainless steel "mini keg" growler for Father's Day. I belong to a private park where I drink plenty of beer, but glass isn't allowed.
So, here's my possibly dumb question. If I can't get somewhere to have my growler filled, would it be possible to transfer bottled beer into the growler? It would be consumed within a couple of hours. I know there would be some carbonation loss, but how much?
I always have a decent selection of canned beer at home, so this is more out of curiosity than necessity.
