What does “Bucket Trade” mean? Before Prohibition and before bottles and cans became widespread, if you wanted beer outside of a bar it was put into a bucket. The buckets of beer were then taken to the thirsty by “bucket boys”, usually carrying several on a pole. This process was called the “bucket trade”. This eventually led to the “growler” which we know and love today!
Stop by and find out why The Bucket Trade is the Tri-Cities Ultimate Source for Beer & Wine. We are your #1 Bottle Shop and Growler Bar in Old Towne Petersburg. Cheers!
