A growler is a jug that allows folks to transport beer from a brewery to home. Yes, you can buy cans of whatever domestic beer you want in a store, but what about that awesome craft beer that isn’t bottled? A growler allows you to take home a half-gallon of beer.
They’re filled straight from the tap, sealed with a cap, and the ones in Morgantown cost around $15-$20. That includes buying the actual container, and when you bring it back to get it refilled – depending on the type of beer you want – it’s generally cheaper. They’ll keep in the fridge for about 7-10 days or 2-3 once opened.
