A Dutch brewer has started producing beer for the dogs and man's best
friend can now join man in an ice-cold brew。

Over the Memorial day weekend, I was walking into a local pub I like to
frequent to get my growler filled. While walking in with this big
container, a group of people stopped me to ask what it was and why I had
A spokesman for the brewers said: "It is a beer for your best friend.
For large dogs we would recommend one bottle a day and for things like a
Chihuahua... well, they prefer shorts."
I was a little flabbergasted that they didn’t know what a growler was,
so I gave them a quick explanation of what it was and why I was bringing
it into the bar. And then it hit me. If this group sitting at a bar
doesn’t know what a beer growler is, then surely there’s a ton of other
people out there missing out on the joys of a growler.
The brew is of course, non-alcoholic。
While is still my preferred method of drinking draft at home, a growler
is a great way to take draft beer with you on the go. Or maybe just get
to try a beer without committing to an entire keg.

we can both go to the pub."
Let’s take a closer look at what growlers are, how to care for them and
why every beer geek should own one.
What Is a Beer Growler?
Simply put, a beer growler is a container or vessel that is used for the
transport of beer. It can also be described as an air-tight jug,
typically made out of glass, ceramic or stainless steel that allows you
to take draft beer from one place to another without a degradation of
A Quick History of Growlers
The origin of the term “growler” is the subject of debate, and likely,
the true story will never be known. But as the story goes, in the latter
half of the 1800’s, growlers referred to metal pails that were used to
transport beer from the local tavern to an individual’s home.
There are those who believe the term arose from the sound that the
pail’s cover made from the escaping carbon dioxide, while others
believed the growling came from another source. The latter belief is
that either the bartender or the customer would be responsible for the
growling, as the bartender was supposed to fill the half-gallon
container with only a pint of beer, while the customer wanted to get a
pail that had much more than just a pint. Whichever party was left
dissatisfied would “growl” about the issue, hence the very apt term.
There was actually a period of time in which the use of growlers was
outlawed, mainly stemming from the fact that children were often sent
out to pick up a pail full of beer for their father. This chain of
custody issue caused alarm in many of the same types of people who
worked in support of prohibition, and the alarm led many cities to
outlaw the use of these containers altogether. The growler eventually
regained popularity, and the present form of container is among the most
widely used for transporting craft beer from its source.
