How long does beer last in a growler unopened?
We recommend that you drink your growler within one to two weeks when kept unopened and refrigerated. Once it is opened you should drink it, phone a friend for larger volume growlers. When a growler is opened air replaces the beer inside the growler and the remaining beer in the growler oxidizes quickly.
Does growler beer go bad?
Growlers of beer will stay fresh for several days (some say up to 10 days) if left unopened. Once opened, however, leftover beer will be flat within 36 hours at best. If a growler is filled with a full counter-pressure system, it is possible for the beer to remain fresh for up to several months.
How do I make my growler last longer?

What’s the point of a growler?
A growler is any container used to sell a measured amount of beer. Most growlers hold half a gallon of draft beer, though some can hold an entire gallon. The growler has taken many forms over the years, but its primary purpose has always been to transport fresh beer from a brewpub or brewery to the drinker’s home.
Why do they call it a growler of beer?
Beginning as early as the late 1800s, tin pails, pitchers, glass jars or jugs, or other vessels were used to carry beer home from the local pub. These “growlers” supposedly got their name because as the beer sloshed around, it caused the carbon dioxide to escape and created a growling noise.
What’s the difference between a Crowler and a growler?
A crowler is, essentially, a growler in a can. It’s a 32-ounce aluminum vessel meant to keep your favorite beers fresh until you decide to drink it.
