Growlers, Crowlers, Boston Rounds, Screamers, Howlers - these are all different bottle formats that breweries use to package their beer for quick consumer takeaway. What are the pros and cons of each; which are our favourites; and what formats have become outdated?Show Notes:

- Fun fact, the Boston Round is generally known as a medicine bottle.
