growlers available from the Franciscan Well

Monday, August 18th, 2014

The Franciscan Well is now selling beer in growlers, basically in large beer bottles that you take home and drink there.
It’s draught beer, from whatever is on tap on the day. A new one is €20 and a re fill is €16. The growler holds 4 pints.

I tried it with the Rebel Lager and it was perfect the first day, and still very good the second day. They do say you should drink it within 48 hours, and I’d agree with that.

I hope it’ll catch on with more pubs – it might be one answer to the fall off in trade, caused by people drinking at home.
(leaving aside *why* people are doing that).

One of the main pluses for me is that while I usually drive to the pub and therefore can’t have a drink, this way I can try
cask specials or whatever new beer is on draught.

Keep it cool in the fridge!

Hopefully the prices will drop a bit if the idea takes off.

I think the Bierhaus do growlers too, so I’ll head in and check.

I tried the IPA last night while having dinner with friends – it’s very good.
I’m looking forward to trying the coffee porter at the weekend.

You can get them in Bradleys on North Main st. but be quick – there’s a limited supply and it’s selling fast!
