Draft Beer To Go - Hand-made by local artisan Michael Pape
In the late 1800s, before bottling was available, men used to bring covered galvanized pails to their local pub to fill with draft beer to drink at home. It was the original form of "take-out." These pails came to be known as "Growlers" for the noise the escaping CO2 made as the beer sloshed in the covered pail. In more recent times, growlers became made mostly of ceramic material, which helps keep the beer colder, longer.
The Beekman 1802 Growler is patterned after a cannonball, with its spherical shape and mottled texture. The sphere is a highly efficient vessel, providing the least surface to volume ratio, so you can transport 1/2 gallon of beer in the smallest sized container possible. This will also make it easier for you to store your growler in the refrigerator or cooler. Glazed in a metallic black.
The cam-lever bottle top is our version of an nineteenth century invention by Robert Hemingray (1886), which was used by the Globe canning jar company during the late 1800's and early 1900's. Simply stated, it utilizes a ball-cam lever with an offset axis of rotation that converts circular motion into a downward linear force. When the lever is rotated into the socket on top of the cap, it presses the cap firmly down against an extra thick FDA approved silicone gasket, making an air-tight seal.
Our growler is a 100% American design in honor of the American spirit of ingenuity and creativity. The Beekman growler is also entirely manufactured near Sharon Springs, and most of the parts used are also manufactured in the U.S.
