Sometime around the late 1800s people wanted to carry their beer home with them from the local pub. They started using what was basically a pail with a lid. It is rumored that the term “growler” was given as the beer would splash around in the pail and made a rumbling noise as CO2 escaped through the lid. The growler took various forms over the years until Charlie Otto introduced the modern day glass growler in 1989.
HOW IT WORKS
CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
Gate City Growlers offers two sizes of growlers, 32oz and 64oz. The 32oz is referred to as “Squeaker” and the 64oz as “Growler.” Gate City has their own growlers available for purchase at any time for a one-time fee. It is $4 for Squeaker & $5 for Growler, with the option to trade up or down a size as needed.
If you have your own growler you are welcome to bring it in to be filled. After you are finished with your beverage all you need to do is rinse it out with hot water and let it air dry or throw it in the dishwasher. Sanitizer packets are also available for $1.
REFILL & ENJOY
Once you have your own growler you can come back and refill it anytime with your choice of beer. With 20 taps that rotate regularly Gate City will always have something to appeal to your beer palette. The beer will always be as fresh as possible and just a pour away.
