Growler Crowd Funding

You asked and we want to deliver! Growlers are coming soon, but we need your help to get them in your hands.

For those of you who don’t know what a growler is, it’s a large jug (typically around 2L in size) that can be filled at a brewery with draught beer to take home. The advantage is that you get cold, fresh beer at a better price (since you won’t need to pay for packaging each time you purchase a bottle).

It’s possible to fill a growler directly from a draught faucet, but it is a poor quality fill. The beer will foam up, releasing CO2, resulting in a flat beer. It also exposes the beer to oxygen, which causes it to go stale sooner. In order to provide a high quality fill, we need to invest in a counter-pressure filler and additional refrigeration. The counter pressure filler purges the growlers with CO2 to prevent oxygen pickup and fills the growler under pressure to avoid the release of CO2. When filled this way, the shelf life of the beer will be weeks rather than days. We will also need to invest in growler inventory and related hardware/accessories.

Steps to get to our goal

  1. Sign up for pre-sale.
  2. Wait for others to sign up, unless you are the last.
  3. Come in to provide payment when contacted.
