WHAT IS A GROWLER?
A Growler is a means to transport fresh beer. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, fresh beer was carried from the local pub to one’s home by means of a small-galvanized bucket. When the beer sloshed around the pail, it created a rumbling sound as the CO2 escaped through the lid, thus the term “Growler” was coined.
Growlers are filled straight from the tap, sealed with a twist cap, often with a heat sealed plastic wrap. Fill prices range anywhere from around $8 to $30. You can bring back your washed growler to refill or purchase new ones at our store location Just note that you must always refrigerate growlers. Doing so will give them a shelf life of just over a week or more and around 2-3 days once opened.
A growler is a great way to take home some fresh brew from a local brewery or brewpub and share with friends.
