How does my bar, brewpub, restaurant use it?

It is offered as an inexpensive spontaneous alternative to a glass growler, allowing customers to take home their favorite craft beers that may not be available in a can or bottle. Customers do not have to remember to bring their growler before coming to the bar, restaurant or café. Bartender simply places container right up to tap and fills it to 16 ounce or 32 ounce mark on outside of container.

How do I close it?

It has a “peel and stick” sealer similar to a strong self-seal envelope or shipping packet. Just peel the strip cover off and close top of container with pressure from fingers.

Is it a 100% seal?

As a temporary container the sealing of the top with the peel and stick qualifies as a “Sealed Container” in many states.

It is recommended this be placed upright in the trunk of a car surrounded by items that will not allow it to tip over.

What if my customer wants more than one?

We encourage them to order as many different styles of beer from you that they want. Order the handy Crafty Carton™ 4 Pak carrier for your bar and they can place 4 cartons into the carrier and walk out the door. Want more? Order 8 cartons and put all theses into two 4 pack carriers.

How do I open it?

I have growlers in my bar now. Why do I need these?

This convenience is in addition to your growlers. Customers may have forgotten their growler. They may already have 4 or 5 of them at home. If they bring another one home they will never hear the end of it! It they decide not to buy another growler you have not made that sale. The customer did not go home with the beer they wanted.

No one has to remember a growler ever again to take beer home. Just fill the Crafty Carton™ with the beer of their choice and they are off. You make the sale and they have the beer they want for consumption at home. This allows the spontaneous purchase of the draft beer they want.

In a city environment very few people are going to walk around all night with a growler visiting several cafes and pubs to be filled at the end of the night. Many places would not let them in with it. With the Crafty Carton™ they can take their favorite beer with them for consumption safely at home at the end of the night.

Growlers take up a lot of space on my bar/shelves. How much space will these take up?

The Crafty Carton™ measures less than 4 inches x 4 inches when stacked upside down on your counter or bar. These will take up no more room than one bottle of scotch or vodka. These are stackable, one fitting into the other, and you can easily store 25 cartons or more at the ready in the pre-mentioned space.
