Victoria Gastro Pub, the Columbia brewpub that we named a Best Restaurant last year and Best 'Burbs Bar in 2009, now has growlers for sale. These glass jugs are usually sold at breweries and brewpubs so customers can get some of their favorite beers to-go. This past week, Victoria started selling 32-ounce growlers (about half the size of typical jugs) of their 24 rotating drafts, which currently include Schlafly Coffee Stout, Flying Dog In-Heat Wheat, Baltimore's-own Oliver’s Coventry Cream Ale, and many others.

The growler itself will cost you $15 and then it will be yours to come in and fill as often as you'd like. The prices for filling the growler will vary, of course, depending on the type of beer you choose. The pub is also very specific that the growler cannot be drank on-site and is meant strictly to be enjoyed elsewhere. They can be purchased anytime from opening until midnight.

This is good news for beer enthusiasts, as growlers aren't prevalently sold or filled in the Baltimore area. But these massive beer jugs are great for many things, especially if you want to have a few people at your house and drink straight-from-the-tap, fresh, craft beers without the bar atmosphere.
