When you visit our tasting room, we offer the option to buy some to take with you. The traditional sized container craft brewers use to sell their draft beer is called “The Growler.” Not a lot is known about the origins of the term, and frankly, many of the explanations we found on the internet are just plain silly. It should be enough to know that a growler is a 64 oz container filled from the taps at a bar or brewery. Since we offer several outstanding beers, we offer a smaller 32 oz container when it’s impossible to choose just one! Several other brewers refer to these as “Growlettes.” We at Drop-In feel that term is sexist, so we call our small growlers “Squealers.” Nothing sexist about that name!
Each container is filled fresh from our taps at the time you order it. We sanitize the growler before filling and sanitize the beer line weekly. We use brown glass which protects the beer from light, and will not fill another brewer’s growler simply because we must be sure the container is correctly cleaned before we fill it with our beer.
This way we guarantee a brewery-fresh experience every time you purchase our delicious beer! Bring a cooler if you’re taking it far. We have Vermont Flannel Company Insulated Growler and Squealer koozies if you need to keep your beer cool for that pic-a-nic or hike.
The Brewers Association have also published a guide to growlers on their website. We have also produced a Growler Fillers Guide for accounts looking to carry our beer for growler filling.
