HydroFlask: A Local Company

HydroFlask based in Bend, Oregon was a pioneer in creating a steel, vacuumed, double walled and insulated bottle for everyday lifestyle. HydroFlask began in 2009 in Central Oregon with a simple water bottle and a screw top lid. With rapid growth of craft beer in Bend, Oregon, HydroFlask decided to dive into the beer industry. They were the first company to come up with an insulted growler (64oz water bottle) for tap beer fill-ups – this is 4 pints of ice cold beer for the boat, picnic or just on your way home! Since then HydroFlask has developed product for the coffee and food categories and expanded their roots in the hydration and beer industries and become the pinnacle water bottle in the market.

One of our favorite pieces that HydroFlask makes is the “True Pint” – this is a stainless steel pint glass that like all HydroFlask products, is vacuum insulated to keep contents cold or even hot for a longer period of time. This product is great for ice water, cold beer or even a hot cup of Joe! HydroFlask uses a powered coated finish on their bottles to eliminate any sweat and condensation and it’s no different on the True Pint. These make for a great replacement in your kitchen cabinet for old glass or plastic cups that break, are heavy and don’t keep your contents the way you want them!

With all the different applications that HydroFlask offers, you can’t have too many options at your finger tips! For everyday hydration we recommend a 40oz widemouth bottle with a straw lid. For any activity like stand up paddle boarding, rafting or kayaking, we advise the the standard mouth with a screw lid – a carabiner can easily be applied to your device and bottle to keep it from dumping into the Deschutes River. For any backpacking trips or hunting trips, you have to take advantage of the food flasks that HydroFlask offers – makes for a great container for warm soup out in the mountains. Don’t forget to bring along your HydroFlask grower for a fill of your favorite local beer like 10 Barrel or Hop Valley and pour it into a True Pint for an ice cold beer drinking experience.
