Clearly you're interested, so let us tell you more about what we do and how we do it: Our Growlers are handmade through the slip-casting process which allows us to provide the best quality ceramic growler, every time. What's that? Slip casting uses plaster molds, made from handcrafted growlers, that are then filled with liquid clay aka: slip.
The Evil Doers of Beer:
Ceramics keeps liquids colder and is a natural insulator.
Light is unable to permeate, stopping the chemical breakdown caused by light.
Our rubber gasket swing-top lids have a superior seal, not allowing any Co2 to escape as well as keeping unwanted air out.

WHERE ARE YOUR GROWLERS MADE?
Queen City Growlers designs and produces all of our growlers in Charlotte, NC at The Little Studio. Our growlers are slip cast from a stoneware clay body.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE A CERAMIC GROWLER OVER A GLASS GROWLER?
That is a great question! Well, if looks aren't enough to seal the deal our handsome ceramic growlers have plenty of other good qualities going for them:
Ceramic is a natural insulator and we deliberately cast the walls of our growlers extra thick to keep liquids cool to the last sip.
Wide mouth, porcelain flip-top lids and rubber gaskets seal in freshness and carbonation longer than the screw top lids usually found on glass growlers
Clay is opaque and it completely blocks out light, preventing your beer from becoming skunked.

HOW LONG DO THEY KEEP BEER COLD FOR?
Once removed from the refrigerator, our growlers keep beer cold for a few hours.
Tip: You can keep beer colder, longer by freezing your growler before filling it, but the growler must be completely dry before freezing.
HOW LONG DO THEY KEEP BEER FRESH FOR?
4-6 days - if closed immediately and placed back in the fridge. In some cases even longer.
WHY ARE THE PORCELAIN FLIP TOP CERAMIC GROWLER LIDS BETTER THAN SCREW TOP LIDS?
The wide mouth top makes for a smooth pour and prevents “glugging” and foaming, which keeps beer from going flat.
Made from solid porcelain, which won’t crack under pressure created from beer carbonation
Rubber gasket creates a tighter seal than threaded screw tops on glass. And each mouth is trimmed by hand to ensure the tightest fit possible.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY GROWLER?
Immediately after you pour your last beer fill with light dish soap and hot water. Let it soak for a few minutes and rinse.
Use a bottle brush when necessary.
Dry upside down.
Do not place in the dishwasher.
