Beer Caddie has glassware available for hire for your function. Our standard recommended size is a schooner (425ml) as this not finished as quickly as a middy but doesn’t get warm like a pint. We would recommend the oxford style glass (see image) however we have a wide range of sizes and styles to cater to any event.
With every Beer Caddie event booked you will receive one complimentary 2L growler. This can be used to store leftover beer after your event. Beer Caddie is always stocked with additional growlers for you to purchase as gifts for your guests or for them to buy directly. Growlers are currently gaining a lot of popularity and many independent bottleshops around Perth and the Southwest will fill them for you with a wide range of local, specialty and seasonal beers.
