This bag is awesome! It's beautifully constructed, and carries my school books and computer. It even survived a super rainy DLD. It shipped promptly, and I love that part of my purchase went to service dogs.

Two girls who love beer

Growler Girls was started because we love beer, A LOT. We would time on the weekends at breweries, get a growler to go, head to dinner, then get home with warm growlers. Putting a cooler in the car with ice seemed like too much work. There had to be a better way.

Emma toyed around with a mock bag and it worked. We raided Tisha's stash of batting and created an insulated bag to hold your growler. They don't scream, "Hey I have beer in here!"

Our bags can keep a cold growler cold for up to 6 hours. We have tested that on many occasions. The bags are not water resistant, we do not recommend putting ice or a freezer pack, unless you want to eventually get wet. Bags can hold a growler beer, two bottles of wine or champagne, and some even use them for lunch or purses.

Each bag is unique, we try to limit using the same print more than twice. Our goal is to reclaim and reuse as many products as possible as well. We salvage seat belts from old cars, wash them, and put them in our bags. We incorporate vintage sheets and old shirts along with new cottons.

In 2014 we teamed up with local breweries to help them recycle their malt bags. We use them to create our market totes and doublers. These bags are not insulated. They can stand some wear and tear though. In their previous life they did hold 30-50 pounds of malt. Cotton scraps from our bags are used to bind the bags.

We love meeting new people in the beer community and lots of breweries.

We both love craft beer, and as more and more brewery's have opened in Indianapolis we realized that there was a need for more creative and attractive bags to carry growlers. So, an idea was born, and we're happy to share our products with all of you!
