A friend to forgetful growler fans everywhere, the crowler is like a steroidal tallboy that bottle shops and breweries can spin together on the spot using Space Age technology.
The 32-ounce cans were first developed by the folks at Colorado's Oskar Blues Brewery as a quick-sealing, fully recyclable alternative to glass. Light-safe and securely closed, the crowler is fast becoming the preferred to-go method for snobs, traders and outdoorspersons.
Here are some of the spots you can find these extra-tallboys to go.
