What is a “growler”?

A  growler is simply a reusable container for beer.  Traditionally in the US, growlers are covered containers holding one half gallon of liquid (64 fluid oz).

What size growlers do you offer?

Perry’s offers 32 oz, 64 oz, and our enormous 128 oz growlers.

Do you charge for the initial growler container?

 Yes, there is an initial fee of $4.99 for our standard 32oz and 64 oz growlers.  We also sell specialty growlers that are individually priced a bit higher.

What is the price to fill up a growler?

The price varies based both on size and which beer you choose.  Our prices are listed on our blackboard in the store.

How many beers to you offer?

We currently keep about thirty different beers on tap at any one time.

How long does the beer stay fresh within the growler?

Once opened you have 1, maybe 2 days (depending on the beer style) to consume.  Sealed, the beer should keep for over two weeks.

Will you fill other store’s growlers?

 Yes we do, so long as they have the government warning label still attached to them.

Is it legal for me to walk around and drink from the growler outside?

 Unfortunately, in Athens-Clarke County it is unlawful for any person to have in his or her possession any alcoholic beverages in any open container while in a public place.

How can I keep up on the latest draft offerings?

Be sure to check us out on facebook.  We often post whenever a new beer gets added to the tap room.

 Say, why is it called a “growler,” anyway?

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. Rumor has it that when the beer sloshed around the pail, it created a rumbling sound as the CO2 escaped through the lid, thus the term “growler” was coined.
