Some of them are also American. I have one from the Schlitz Brewery from the turn ot the century. They are called "Growlers" and I found a brief article on them at http://barleysbrewing.com/growler.htm.

I can't get the above website to open, even though I have a printed hardcopy in front of me. However there is a good article on beer bottles and a nice section on growlers and their origin on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_bottle
