Growlers by @IrishBeerSnob

CRAFT BEER FEATURE

What sums up to me the Craft Beer Revolution in this country is the choice and range of craft beers available to people, both in growing numbers of bars, but in an ever increasing amount of Off Licences. It seems our consumption of alcohol habits are changing, both in where we purchase, and what we are consuming. We are importing a lot of great beers from overseas, in turn our brewers are starting to produce their own take on these beers, and we’re having great fun on on this journey of discovery. One of the things that has come along almost under the radar is the humble Growler.
