What Is A Growler?
First a little history lesson about Growlers.
A Growler is a glass, steel, aluminium or ceramic vessel for beer, you know, a flagon.
Historically growlers were simply a bucket with a lid for taking home beer from the pub at closing time or “Doing the Growler Run” which was beer delivery to the worksite for tradies lunch breaks back in the good ol’ days.
They have been around since pre-prohibition days in the US, and after waning in usage in Australia they are now back in force with hundreds of venues filling them.
The standard modern growler is usually a brown 2L glass bottle with a handle (often they are actually 1.89 L or 64 U.S. fl oz) and they equate to approximately a six pack. Modern steel growlers like those sold by us have many advantages over the glass ones.
