I still prefer a growler. Once you've opened a crowler you have no choice but to finish it or transfer it to something that seals.

I remember on one of the Toronto beer podcasts Mandy from Left Field mentioned that beer isn't always the best quality when it's packaged in a growler. Here's a quote from an article on Ben's beer blog..

Mandie Murphy, cofounder of Left Field Brewery, says that for their company, the cons outweigh the pros. “Because they are so big and the shelf life is so short, there’s a higher likelihood that a customer will have a bad experience with one of our beers if it’s in a growler,” she says.

LOL in other words, drink our beer faster and then come back and buy more. Growlers aren't that big and if you're leaving one too long that it spoils the beer then you bought too big. Maybe just single servings are best for some people. On the other hand if I open a crowler and decide I'm too tired to finish it then it'll definitely be spoiled by the next morning let alone the next evening when I feel like having another beer.
