Why We Love Crowlers

Crowler = Can + Growler. These little wonders of packaging have appeared everywhere in our fair city. We obtained our seamer and cans in May of 2016 and never looked back.

Why do we love them?

  • The Right Amount – Sometimes a 64-ounce growler is just too much beer. While we still appreciate the tried-and-true glass jugs, a crowler is less intimidating to some.
  • Longevity – Since the can gets seamed into an airtight vessel they last for a looooong time. However, we still recommend drinking our beer fresh. Why wait to enjoy?
  • Ease of transport – an aluminum container can go places a glass growler can’t go. The beach, canoeing, that small space in your fridge, etc.
  • Variety – We’ll put together a three-pack with a handy carrier so you can work on trying three different beers. The carrier snaps onto the tops just like a six-pack carrier. They also function as an anti-roll device.
  • Cool factor – Show up to a party with a giant can of beer and be the envy of all your friends. The process of sanitizing, purging, filling, seaming and labeling a crowler is pretty cool to watch too.
  • Local – As always, you’re supporting your local brewery/economy.

Any of our beers on draft are available in crowlers to go. Also the majority of our other friends on the Lake Erie Ale Trail have started getting them, so you’ll see them more and more around Erie.
