Beer Jugs: Why call it a Growler?

Beer Jugs: Why call it a Growler?

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, fresh beer was carried from the local pub to one’s home by means of a small, galvanized pail (AKA a “Bucket of Beer”). Rumor has it that when the beer sloshed around the pail, it created a rumbling, growling sound as the C02 escaped through the lid, thus the term “growler” was coined.

Before WWII, city kids brought covered buckets of draft beer from a local bar or brewery to workers at lunchtime or to their parents at dinnertime, a practice called “rushing the growler.”

Use and resuse to your hearts content…you’re doing your part to save the environment and taking part in a tradition of supporting the local community and local businesses that spans over more than 200 years.

Sigona’s now carries Devil’s Canyon root beer. Come buy a growler for $5 and get your first fill for free! Limited time offer. Refills are $6.99.
