Why is it called a Growler?
There are plenty of stories explaining the growler's name, but most trace the word back to early-20th-century English pubs. Beer could be taken home in tin pails with lids on them, and when gas escaped from the carbonated brew, it rattled the lids to create a sort of growling noise.
Can you fill any growler?
Per MD state law, we can fill any growler that has a store logo, goverment warning and cleaning instructions. But we are happiest filling our own and please leave the milk jugs at home. We restrict it to 32 oz ,64oz and 2 liter at this time.
What if my growler doesn't have all of that stuff?
No problem if your growler is naked of anything , we have some handy dandy stickers with all the needed requirements.
What are the hours of the Growler Station?
If the store is open, you can buy a growler. However, we do ask that you try to avoid buying one during the last twenty minutes of the business day since we typically clean the station during that time.
How long will the beer in my growler last?
We suggest consuming your growler within two weeks of purchase (but seriously, why are you waiting so long?!?). Once opened, you should consume the beer within 24 - 48 hours. In short, don’t open it unless you can finish it! If you need help polishing off your growler, make a friend or two.
Now we do sell the uKeg™ Pressurized Growlers, It’s easy to use, with an automatic regulator cap that holds CO2 inside, and Like a mini keg, the uKeg will keep your beer fresh for weeks.
How many times can I refill my growler?
If kept clean, growlers can theoretically be used indefinitely.
How do I clean my growler?
It is best to rinse your growler thoroughly several times with hot water as soon as you are done with it and let it air dry. Avoid using soap as it is harder to get the soap out than the beer and you don't want your next fill to taste soapy. And make sure it is completly dry before putting the cap back on, otherwise you will get some nasty stuff growing in there. If you forget these detailed cleaning instructions they are printed on the back of your growler.
If my growler is dirty will you clean it for me?
Nope, as your Mother has been telling you for years you are old enough to clean up after yourself.
