As the craft beer revolution has continued to rise, we have seen a rise also from the growler station. Since breweries usually put out their craft seasonals only into kegs this provided a way to allow customers to bring home their delicious nectar. Luckily growlers have come a long way since their first invention.
Growlers used to be just a bucket with a lid that customers would bring home beer in from the local bar. The term growlers is said to come from when the beer was washing back and forth in the bucket and the CO2 would create a growling sound as it escaped. The modern day growler that is able to seal in CO2 and allow customers to deliver a fresh carbonated beer back home was not invented until the late 80s. Since then the growler has undergone many different changes to make them cooler and more effective. Now you can find a growler station in most major cities or grocery stores.
Luckily, Fort Worth is without a doubt a major city so it gives you many options for finding a place to fill your growler.
