What's a Growler/Howler?
A growler is a 1.89 L (half a gallon) vessel that's great for entertaining. A howler is a smaller version –that’s 946 mL that’s great for discovering new beers. They can be filled (and refilled) with fresh beer straight from the keg.
What's the Cost?
Growlers are available at four price points – $12, $14, $16 and $20 (plus a $5 deposit). Howlers are available at five price points - $6.50, $7.50, $8.50, $10 and $12 (plus a $4 deposit). Prices vary depending on the style of beer. Beers at the $12 price point will only be available in the howler format. You can also purchase two 1-oz samples for a nominal fee of $0.50.
What's on Tap?
It's always changing! To learn about what’s on tap, follow us on Twitter @LCBO or contact the store directly.
Beer in a growler should be capped tightly, refrigerated and consumed within two to three days of purchase to maintain freshness and quality. Growlers should be rinsed with water after use to maintain saleable condition.
Growler and howler bottles require a deposit that will be refunded when customers return them to a participating Growler location. (LCBO has the right to refuse a growler refund, should the growler be in unsaleable condition.)
