WHY CROWLERS?

...and NOT growlers?

We love our beer, and are excited and honored that our guests want to take some home with them. However, we don't offer Growler fills of any size at the Mile Wide Taproom. Instead, we offer all of our beers on tap in a 32oz Crowler, which we believe is the best to-go vessel for our beer. Among many other reasons, the aluminum can greatly reduces the beer's exposure to two of its worst enemies, light and oxygen.

To fill Crowlers, we go through a multi-step process to ensure that they're stable for a significantly longer period of time than a Growler. The Crowler is rinsed clean, purged with CO2, filled from our taps, and then capped and sealed on our Crowler seamer.

At the end of the day, we see Crowlers as a bonus for our fans. You’re saving roughly $1 per pint compared to our on-site pricing. You can leave with 32oz of two different beers, rather than 64oz of one. You don’t have to remember to bring a Growler with you. Lastly, we have the peace of mind knowing that our beer is tasting exactly how we intended it to. And that may be the best reason of all.
