National Growler Day – December 17, 2011

16 Dec

The holidays are a special time when long unseen friends and relatives can come together and share each others’ company with a nice local craft beer.  So why shouldn’t there be another holiday added that reminds us to use our environment-friendly, refillable growlers to go out and buy great tasting, locally made beer?  Hence the movement by The Beer Mapping Project to proclaim December 17 as National Growler Day, a day to buy a cool new beer carrying vessel or get some use out of your old one.  That’s reason enough for us to head to our local brewery and buy some beer.

The Sprocket Growler

9 Dec

Get your local craft beer in style with this simple yet very bad-ass growler from Portland Growler Company.  Made of kiln-fired stoneware, this 64-oz vessel is much sturdier than your typical glass growler and the ceramic will help keep that brew cold during your drive home.  The Sprocket Growler ($64)

Growlers in the Press

We love our house growlers. Useful for toting some homebrew to the family get together at grandma’s house, or bringing home a few liters of that special cask release from the local craft brewery. Growlers are nothing new, but a recent surge is bringing this old way to buy, carry, and enjoy beer back from beer geekdom and making it available for everyday beer lovers.
