ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

It's been three weeks since Pretoria Fields debuted in downtown Albany, and the staff is finding a growing market in pumping out their craft brews that you can take home.

They're called 'crowlers,' similar to canned beer, but it's a way for residents to take Pretoria craft beer home.  The crowler evolved from the growler, which is glass, and is re-usable. The crowler is a can, which you throw away.

The beer is packaged into kegs and then poured into the 32-ounce crowler, which is then sealed to be air-tight. 

Staff said they've sold more than 400 crowlers already. 

And that's about 50 crowlers of each of the four beer brands.

"We wanted to get these crowlers because it's a great idea for Christmas gifts. We've had several folks come in and already buy several crowlers to take back. We had a couple of guys from South Carolina two days ago," explained Pretoria Fields Beer Rep & Microbiologist Hogan Skandamis. 

Staff with Pretoria Fields said the crowlers are brewed fresh daily, so the craft beer keeps its rich flavor.
