Will you fill growlers from other companies or growlers with no branding on them? If so, any restriction on size/style of growler?

Thanks to everyone that came out this weekend! It was awesome to see some old friends and great to meet more people from this community.

We are going to back at it next weekend with a new beer on tap. Details will be posted on our website soon and I'll update this thread shortly after.

Why only 1.89L?
I like half growlers. Any chance you'd open up to this?

we will now fill half growlers as well and we actually just placed an order for some half growlers of our own so half growlers will be an option for all beers that we are pouring

Revisiting an old post. No issues with scaling up, and well on their way...

Full disclosure, I'm friends with the guys. It's been fun reading comments/ratings, though I'm not sure how a 2-3 day old beer could taste past due. I mean I guess if you're getting a bottle filled from a growler who knows how much later, there would be some degradation.

For the record, there's a dude getting growlers, filling his own bottles, and handing them out to friends in Toronto. Is this a common thing that I'm just hearing about, or is it as fucked as I think it is?

Maybe it's just me, but if I were into this whole ticking/rating thing, I'd strive to taste the best example of a beer...At least when you're at a bar and base an opinion off of a sample, it's still fresh...
