WHAT IS A GROWLER?
A growler is a jug-style container that is used to hold beer. A growler is air tight, typically made out of glass, ceramic, or stainless steel and allows you to take draft beer from place to place without degradation of quality.
HOW LONG DOES A GROWLER LAST?
A growler fill can last about two days after opening. Upopened and stored in a cold, dark place, a growler can last up to two weeks. But in reality you’d want to drink a growler in 24 hours. The longer it’s in touch with oxygen, the flatter the beer will become. A 64 oz growler is great to share. While the 32 oz is perfect for a solo mission.
CAN I SAMPLE BEERS BEFORE FILLING A GROWLER?
You sure can! You can enjoy a pint while making your growler fill decision or you can get a sample to help you out in making your decision.
