A few growler facts

  • Growlers have been around for over 100 years, they started out as small buckets, carried by "growler boys" called "rushing the growler".
  • The Growler was still in use up until the 1960's in waxed cardboard throw-away containers that were filled with draft beer.  The packaging was switched to plastic and then dropped altogether as packaged beer took over sales for take home.
  • Growlers promote recycling.  According to the New York Times, growlers will be responsible for over 1 billion less bottles and cans going into landfills
  • The current basic "old brown jug" growler is credited to Otto Brothers brewery.  In 1989, Charlie Otto bought a screen print machine and purchased moonshine style glass jugs and imprinted his brewery's logo on them for carryout sales to local residents.

Growler care

  • When finished, just rinse out with hot water. Do not use soap.
  • Soap will leave a residue and interfere with your next pour.
  • If you have a foul smell or see junk in your growler, put a little vinegar or clorox with hot water, let it sit 15 min's and shake around to loosen it up, then hot rinse again.
