Announcing Session #60: Growlers Galore

submit to reddit

The Washington Beer Blog is proud to host the Session for February 2012. Exactly what does that mean? Well, anyone with a beer-related blog can join the session. Simply write a post related to the session’s topic and send us a link. The basic idea is to get a whole bunch of bloggers from near and far writing about a particular beer-related topic on the first Friday of the month. Beyond that, a Session is pretty much unstructured. It’s a cool idea, hatched by fellow writer Stan Hieronymus. This session will take place on Friday, February 3rd. As host, it’s my duty to announce a topic.

Let’s talk about growlers. Write about growlers and publish a post on Friday, February 3rd.  Email us the link and we’ll do the rest. You can even leave your link as a comment to this post.

These days people take growlers for granted. In my neck of the woods, growlers are a relatively new phenomenon. I don’t recall exactly when they appeared on the local beer scene but it could not have been more than eight or ten years ago. Maybe they existed in obscurity before. My memory fails me. Today growlers are everywhere. I think. Growlers are very common around the Pacific Northwest, anyway. I cannot speak to their popularity elsewhere. I’d love to know.

Tell us about your growler collection. Tell us why you love growlers or why you hate them. What is the most ridiculous growler you’ve ever seen? Tell us about your local growler filling station. Ever suffer a messy growler mishap? Anything related to growlers is acceptable.

I happen to prefer draft beer over bottled or canned beer and growlers make it very easy for me to enjoy draft beer at home. My growler collection is quite enormous and I even have a special device installed in the back seat of my car to securely transport up to three growlers at a time.

So there you have it. For February the Session will be about growlers. Write about growlers on Friday, February 3rd, send me a link or leave it as a comment below.

    My session #60 is here:

    To be honest I published it 8 days ago and only found out about the Session #60 two days ago so I’m hoping it will count. The title is:
    The Pub vs. The Growler

    Greetings Kendall,

    Originally I was planning to share the glories of the Pegas CrafTap in my blogpost, but somehow it morphed into this:

    “Terrariums Terrorize Craft Beer Lovers:
    Clean Your Jugs!”

    …a disgusting, but relevant topic. LOL
