  • Gateway Beer

    A gateway beer is a special beer in someone’s life that leads to further craft beer enlightenment and appreciation.

    A growler is a container used to take beer off-premises for consumption. It’s typically a US half gallon in volume (1.9L in Metric measurements).

    Gravity, in terms of brewing, refers to specific gravity, or a ratio of the density of beer to the density of water. Higher density indicates more fermentables in solution, and thus more potential alcohol.
