Why get a Growler?

Those who purchase an Ipswich Ale Brewery growler are able to buy unlimited fills of specialty and year-round beers at the Ipswich Ale Brewer's Table restaurant.

Two-Liter growler fills will ONLY be available to those in possession of Ipswich Ale new-style swing top growlers. We do not fill blank growlers, or growlers from other breweries.

The current growler is $17 and can be purchased for oneself or as a gift for the Ipswich Ale lover in your life. Pricing to fill the growler varies between $15-$18/fill.


Only you can prevent a dirty growler...

Here are some easy steps for cleaning and caring for your growlers between fills:

Store it cold until you have time to clean it. The best thing to do is to clean a growler as soon as you finish drinking it, but we know that’s not always possible. So, to limit bacteria’s ability to take hold, keep the growler in a cooler or in the fridge until you have a few minutes to wash it out.

Triple rinse with hot water. Make sure your tap water is nice and hot, then fill, swirl and rinse your growler about 3 times. This should knock out anything that has started to develop in your growler.

Air-dry upside down. Allow your growler to sit upside down and air dry completely. A damp growler can harbor bacteria, whereas a dry growler will not.

Leave the cap off. Don’t cap your growler once it has been cleaned. Capping the growler will result in stagnant air, which could promote bacteria growth. Allowing the air to circulate will reduce this risk.

When you bring in your growler to be filled, we will visually inspect it and take a sniff to make sure it is clean. If we can see mold or if we pass out from the smell, we will not be able to fill your growler.
