"Big" ones are growlers to  me, smaller 1l ones are either riggers or flagons.





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

A flagon was also referred to a the 1/2 gallon jar, so I'd have though the flagon as we know it here in NZ would be 2.25 litres.

Jonski: There was (is?) a pub in London, can't remember the name, might have been the Frog & Firkin that sold Tshirts that said "Frog Od's Sake, Buy Me a Firkin Pint". 

 

Another one was "I've flounder great plaice for a firkin pint"

Geektastic:

Possibly you are.

 

Yes you can just buy bottled beer.

 

Bottled beer is or used to be different to the draft beer served out of the tap at the pub. A flagon was filled from a tap either in the bar or in the bottle store and was the same beer you got when you had a pint poured in the bar.

We have a couple of Sprig & Fern growlers.  The phrase "Fill my growler for me, please" never gets old.
