Oskar Blues Develops Big Freakin' Can

Remember when Heineken was pushing those mini keg cans? Cool concept, but then you started to ask yourself, “who needs that much Heineken?”

Now, if you saw a big ass can of Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale, you could probably understand why someone would need that much, um, girth. Oskar Blues is best known for pioneering the canned craft beer craze, and now they’ve created the Crowler—a growler-sized can of beer that you can refill at Oskar Blues’ taprooms in Longmont, Colo. and Brevard, N.C.

Not only do you get a lot of beer (32 ounces), but it might even taste better, since glass growlers aren’t usually cleaned properly, which will eventually affect the taste of the beer. The Crowler, on the other hand, is meant to be used and recycled.

Go here to learn how the Crowler works (hint, it involves “purging”).
