Below is a table that details the dimensions and volume that each of our mini kegs and growlers can hold. It also includes the height of each of the taps as well as the max volume allowed when using Nitro.
Please ensure you consider the height of both the vessel and tap. However the taps can be removed at any time to allow you to store the keg lying down (or standing if you have room) This will leave the keg with a spear (6cm) on it (this has the valves that the tap connects to).

Does your local brewery only do glass growlers?
There are some out there that don't fill steel growlers we've heard.
Well, this is the best compromise we could come up with.
Sure the growler can still smash, it'll still need to stay in the fridge and it's still only a maximum of 2L but...
No longer will they go bad in 24 hours, you can flush the growler with CO2 prior to filling and then keep it at exactly the right pressure so it is carbonated till the last drop without any chance of oxygen getting in.
This is for you.
