How It Works

Growlers come in two sizes:  64 oz. and 32 oz.  Once you buy a growler, you can refill it as many times as you want (Mother Earth thanks you).  Unlike some shops, we will exchange any size “Craft” empty at no extra cost (i.e. 32 oz. and 64 oz. growlers are interchangeable).   We sanitize your empty growler, purge the oxygen with a mix of carbon dioxide and nitrogen, and fill it with your new favorite tasty beverage. Your growler will stay fresh, quality unchanged, for weeks until oxygen is introduced. 

Important : Once you have enjoyed your growler, please wash the container with soap and water and let it dry. If you bring us a container so dirty, it looks like a science experiment, we won’t be able to properly clean and sanitize the inside glass.  Instead, you will need to purchase a new growler to maintain your GI tract, and keep the integrity of the brewers who have graced us with their creation. You can take home your experiment and tame it before bringing it back.

Once opened, you have about 2-3 days before the carbonation starts to diminish, kind of like a 2 liter.   Don’t be shy about drinking your special brew, we’re eager to see you again, too.  The freshness of a growler can’t be beat, but don’t take our word for it.  Buy a growler of your favorite beer and taste it against the same beer from a bottle.  You will be very surprised at the level of complexity your 12oz bottle was missing.  Not to mention the enjoyment of all of the small batch and special release beers from your favorite brewers that you can now enjoy at home.

 Craft Growler shop will fill any growler as long as you bring it in clean and it has the proper health warnings required by federal law printed on the glass.
