“Can I take this beer home?” It’s a popular question heard in breweries across the country. And now the bartender is finally able to say, “Yes, ma’am, you can.” Thanks to the invention of the Crowler, everyone can easily take their favorite craft beer with them wherever they want to go.
Simplicity of Design
A Crowler is essentially an aluminum can that can be filled at the tap and sealed on the spot. The same design used to seal soda and suds for the better part of 50 years has finally made its way to the craft beer world, thanks to the partnership between Oskar Blues Brewery and Ball Corporation. Not long ago, representatives from the two companies put their heads together and developed a simple and efficient canning solution that even the smallest of craft breweries and some retailers could utilize.
The system itself is rather small – not much larger than a coffee machine. It’s easy to nest it right next to our taps. It’s simple to use, too. We simply fill the empty aluminum can with some CO2, add beer, place the lid on the can and insert it into the machine. Apply a little pressure, add a label, and voila! You have a beer to take down the road.
