Before bottled beer became economical and common in the US, if one wanted beer outside of the saloon, it was usually draught beer filled and carried out in a growler, aka a “can” or “bucket” of beer.
Many different containers (including pitchers, other pottery or glass jars and jugs, etc) were used to carry beer home or to work – the most common “growler” was a 2 quart galvanized or enameled pail. Is this how the patrons of Fairbanks Pioneer Brewing Company took beer-to-go in the 1930’s?
