Cheap Growler Fills

Growlers make it easy to bring fresh beer home with you, and you want that because fresh beer tastes better. Calgary (and Alberta) has been blessed with many many different breweries and taprooms that are ready and waiting to fill your growlers and other boozy canisters. I thought it would be fun to put together a list of places where you can get a cheap growler fill. Everyone loves beer + saving money, right?

  • What is a growler?
      • A 64 ounce (1.89 litre) jug for beer that is poured from a tap. They can come in metal or ceramic as well, but most are made of brown glass (to prevent sunlight getting in) and run about $6 – $8 to buy empty.
  • How much beer is that?
    • A full growler is just over three standard 20 oz pints of beer, just under a regular 6 pack of 355ml cans, or about the same as 4 tallboy 473ml cans.
  • How long does beer stay fresh in a growler?
    • It’s a good idea to consume your beer within a week of getting the growler filled, as long as you haven’t opened it. If you’ve opened your growler, it’ll stay fresh for a little over a day, before going flat.

    Not sure if you want to know about the highest price growler refills. High River Brewery is charging $10 per litre, $20 dollars for my 1.89 litre growler.

      Sorry I missed this. Pretty much every place that fills growlers will also sell them too. Because they’re so cheap (like $6 empty), I’d suggest just buying one from like a few places. They’re often around $19-$22 when purchased + filled, but you can just buy the empty glass if you want.

      Basically, whose beer do you like the most? Get theirs!
