Leadership Greater Syracuse, a local non-profit dedicated to inspiring current and future leaders to make a difference in the CNY community, recently held a Pay It Forward Day. This event was both a celebration of the LGS Class of 2015's completion of the course, and also a time to take the things they learned and "pay it forward" to their communities and the next generation of LGS leaders. Among other inspirational and challenging events, LGS held a raffle of gifts for the 2016 class, with one of the prizes being a growler from none other than Orange Vessel Co.! We were glad to get to be a small part of this important day for LGS, and are grateful for their great work in and dedication to Central New York!
ORANGE Vessel News. Custom Beer Growlers make great holiday Gifts! Check back for updates on sales, new features, accessories, and styles, as well as news about shows and fairs that we'll be at. Dive in!
As the holiday season gathers steam, we've been getting lot of custom orders, which we think is really awesome. Seeing how people take what we've made and make them unique for themselves and the ones they love is a great thing. It is also, unfortunately, a time-consuming process due to the setup and shipping involved, and so we have to note here that today is the last day you can order a custom growler and still get it in time for Christmas. Rest assured, you can always still order one after that (and if you haven't you probably should), it just won't make it to you in time for the holidays. So order fast! And drink up.
Table Hopping, CNY's monthly publication of all things entertainment, food & drink, and event-based, featured us in a great write-up of gifts for the craft beer enthusiast in your life. If you've already gotten said enthusiast in your life an Orange Growler (in which case, well done) but are still looking for a little something, be sure to check out the list here, and then see what else is happening in the area this month! We recommend drinking beer from any of the local microbreweries & pubs and ice skating in Clinton Square, thought not necessarily in that order.
If, on the off chance, you hadn't heard, Orange Vessels aren't just great for beer. They'll keep anything you want cool and refreshing, while also being incredibly convenient for carrying your tasty beverage and doing that better than, say, your hands. One of the great things you might want to put into your Orange Vessel is mead, the delicious forefather to all things fermented. It's made primarily from honey, and our friends at Meadist are dedicated to its consumption and exposition.
To that effect, Meadist made up a great holiday gift guide (which can be seen here) which includes our growlers! And encourages you to buy them to fill with mead. Which we certainly recommend doing. We also recommend checking out more of Meadist, as they've got some great information on all things mead, and some excellent recommendations to try if you've never tasted the deliciousness before. Enjoy!
Carlos Eliason, owner of the blog Elias Visuals, recently got a hold of one of our Slate growlers and reviewed it for us. His feedback was great, and he also took some really great images that show off the smooth finish of the Slate growlers. Head over to his blog and check out his review and his photography, which is quite nice. Thanks Carlos!
Don't be put off by the title; we're strictly speaking about the awesome Canadian blog LumberJac here. The wonderful gentlemen over there, who are dedicated to finding the perfect products for living life, recently graced us with a tip of the hat and twirl of the mustache. Go to their site to see what they had to say, and stick around to peruse the rest of the awesome gear that they've picked out.
Two really exciting bits of news here; one, that we added a new, nature-inspired color to our lineup, and two, that we got those short-stack ceramic pieces of wonderfulness that are our 32 oz. growlers all set to go! We're pretty stoked about both of these developments, and are looking forward to expanding our products even more in the future. If you have ideas on colors, sizes, collaborations, or anything else, we'd love to hear your thoughts! Let us know below or shoot us an email.
Brewpublic, the wonderful Portland-based blog dedicated to everything beer, from news to current events to culture, featured our growlers! We happily provided a growler engraved with their logo for their inspection and they, in turn, gave their earnest thoughts of it. Which were good ones. Check out the article, and be sure to follow Brewpublic for the best of the Brewniverse.
We added some tshirts to our store! They're tagless, screenprinted, and made of pre-shrunk cotton and so therefore we think they are pretty great. Pick one up today and represent Orange with pride. We have them in orange, grey, and black and you should probably get one.
Mostly cause it's filled with good beer. To accompany your tasty beverages this coming weekend, we whipped up this infographic showing why beer is great and what's happening with the industry.
We're super thankful for the love we've been getting recently from the interwebs! Lots of sites have picked us up, and we're currently in talks with some new partners. You can see the awesome blogs that have featured us on our Press page here (check them out!), and don't forget that you, too, can order customized growlers for your event, business, or brewery! Send us an email with your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you as soon as humanly possible. Or even sooner. Cheers!
..and they're available for preorder! Using magic, we managed to shrink our normal growlers to half size, resulting in an adorable 32 oz. mini-growler that retains the ability to quench your thirst for portable, tasty beverages. The carry ring is still just as big in order to fit your fingers comfortably, and we've applied all our standard colors to these cute little brewbearers. Available now at an early bird discount rate of only $44!
Preorder here for the discount price.

After we started shipping our most excellent quaffluggers, we got some great feedback from one of our patrons: It would be much easier, she said, to close the growler if the topper was a duck. Heeding her wise words, we quickly adjusted our production process to include a rubber coating for the topper handles, not only preventing potential chipping in the surface of the glaze but also making the action of closing the top easier on your hands. Ducks for everyone.
Orange Vessel Co. is in the news!

We're excited to announce a new addition to our family is in the works! We are currently massaging the details of a half-size, 32 oz. growler - the little brother to our current standard volume. More details to come, so be sure to check back!
