Check the Rules for Beer Growlers in Your Place
You might be surprised, but there are rules for using growlers in some areas. For example, some places require exchanging empty growlers for full growlers from your chosen breweries. In other words, you cannot use your own growler directly in these places.
On the other hand, you want to check in with your brewery too. Breweries likely almost always have rules for growlers. However, you do not have to worry. These places probably do not have rules as strict as state laws.
Clean Your Beer Growlers Properly
Do not forget to clean your growlers as soon as possible. While growlers do not require any particular cleaning that is out of the ordinary, you want to clean them quickly. This way, you can avoid further problems.
In addition, some breweries will offer to clean your growler before filling it up. While you might have already done that, you still want to take the offer! If a place offers cleaning, they most likely know how to handle your growler well.
Fill Your Beer Growlers Properly
More often than not, you will not be filling your own growler. However, that does not mean you do not have a part in the filling process!
First, whether a place offers to clean growlers or not, it would be ideal to come in with a clean one. After that, you also want to check your growler does not have any defects before you hand it over for filling. Finally, overfilling is a big no. With that, it should not be surprising to find your growler not filled to the rim!
Treat Beer Growlers as You Would Beer Bottles and Cans
While a beer growler might look sturdier than beer bottles and cans, that does not mean you should no longer try protecting it and its contents. For one, store a beer growler properly. For another, ensure it does not experience extreme temperature changes. Finally, do or do not do whatever you would or would not do to a beer bottle or can.
Beer Growlers Are Not Magic Lamps
As we have said above, the job of a beer growler is to hold a particular volume of beer and preserve it. Despite that, a beer growler will not be able to keep the quality of the beer it has forever. In other words, there is a time limit. Typically, that is around a few days to a week and a half.
