This is not the story you think it is.
Maybe back in my twenties, it might have been that type of story. One of tequila shots being poured into the back of your throat by a Mexican blowing a whistle in your ear, then grabbing your face and shaking it until you want to vomit.
But that’s not this story. This story isn’t even about the time my band played a show for a bunch of drunk college kids in the hot sun for three days. That would have been a good time if we didn’t have a constant electric current going through our bodies—apparently they didn’t care to ground any of the outlets. So when unknowing (and often wet) partygoers would hug or high-five us, they sent note-murdering electric shocks through everyone in the band.
But that story is for another time. This story is about a product we carry: The ManCan keg-style growler. And it’s about my experience with that product on a recent trip to Mexico’s Cabo San Lucas.
Just toting the ManCan around the resort drew immediate attention. “Hey what’s that?” people asked. Where did you get that?” “How many beers does it hold?” “Does it really keep them cold?” And of course lastly, “Where do I get one?” That last question wasn’t hard for me to answer. But I did want to answer all of the other questions over the next several days.
