It's the O.G (Original Gangster) in the growler world. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, fresh beer was carried from the local pub to one's home by means of a small-galvanized pail also known as a "Steel Pail". Rumor has it that 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 generally made of glass and have either a screw-on cap or a hinged porcelain gasket cap, which can provide freshness for a week or more. A properly sealed growler will hold carbonation indefinitely and will store beer like any other sanitized bottle. Common sizes range from 32oz to 64oz all the way to as large as 128oz. The modern glass growler was first introduced by Charlie and Ernie Otto of Otto Brother's Brewing Company in 1989
A well filled growler will push out and eliminate oxygen allowing it to stay fresh for 2-3 weeks. However, we do believe beer of any sorts should not hang around this long. Once the container is opened you have about 24 hours before the oxygen completely eats away the freshness duo of CO2 and Nitrogen.
Depending on the size and rarity of beer the range of cost is usually between $5 - $28. Usually the cost is $10 - $13 for a 64oz fill.
It's sustainable, reusable, and recyclable. Enough said. "Go Earth"
