With the evolution of distinct beer breweries across America, comes a new beverage container that has become a staple product… The Beer Growler.
The big question most of our customers ask is… Where can we get them? Why are they so hard to find? Well the truth is that you can find them pretty easily in small quantities at places like KegWorks or KegKits.com. What you will most likely find is minimal stock availability.
If you are looking for growlers for your brewery, we offer a number of different selections. First and foremost, we have been doing the basic brown growler utilizing a wrap imprint. This allows the bottle to be printed with one pass. Unfortunately it only works using a 1 color print. Prices vary depending on quantity and for some of our breweries that order by the pallet, our prices can go as low as $2.50 each. Add plastisol seals for freshness for $.20 each. You will note that the box on the front is a write on space, so that different batches of brew can use the same bottle.
The next level of growler are the European style. Once again, we can decorate these a number of ways. The image below is sand blasted and color filled.
We can do as few as 10 of these blank and 40 with a decoration at one time, but the price falls in the $50 range, plus setup. Another method that we have been doing is placing a poly-dome decal on them. This allows very small quantities but requires at least 100 decals. These can be used on multiple products. This only includes a front logo and does not get the required warning label on the back. Which moves us to the next option. Provided that you do at least 100 units,you can screen print the front, screen print warning info on the back and that gets your price in the range of $25 for long term customers to $30 for 1 time orders. There are $125 in setup charges. Availability is sometimes tough, for a few reasons. First of all, the design has a number of patents that are strictly enforced. This is also why you can’t find them being knocked off from some factory in China.
We have also started carrying these fine ceramic growlers. Minimum order is 12 units and pricing falls in the $59 range.
Next, they are made in Germany. For those of you that don’t know Germans, they remind me a lot of Key West residents. There’s rarely a sense of urgency to certain things. Beer consumption is much more important than making beer bottles. Back to business… Basically the manufacturer can not keep up with sales. If you were to place an order for 25 cases (10 per case) of bottles today, you would be very lucky to get them in 75-90 days.
As far as pricing is concerned, we can’t even give you an accurate price due to the fluctuation of the dollar compared to the Euro. Here is an approximate estimate. If you are looking to use the standard metal handle, the prepaid price as of 12-7-10 would fall in the $20 range, blank. Add $2.75 for placing your logo in one color on one side.
If you are considering a more traditional growler, prices fall in the $3 to $5 range, depending on a number of decorating options. This style can typically be produced in 3-4 weeks.
The other thing to consider is the fact that we are in the Midwest. Growlers are big and heavy. Our shipping rates are most likely better than the competition.
