Has not been the case where I've seen growlers being filled.

Unless they let you bring a milk jug, you've paid for the packaging.  I suppose it's reusable so the amortized cost is minimal but you definitely pay for the packaging.

True, you also pay for the growler. But what I meant was that growler fills are more expensive than bottled beer on a $/oz comparison - at least at almost every brewery I've been to.

Well, I know that at Goose Island it's definitely cheaper than buying pints of the same beer.  But that's not necessarily a decent comparison between the costs of growlers vs. bottles.

I actually filled up a growler in Bend about a month ago or so, on my way to visit my daughter in Eugene.  It was delightful.  There must have been 30 or 40 craft beers on tap to choose from.  Being from Utah, I knew I was in brew heaven.

Besides that, it's illegal to put gasoline in a glass container!   :o   ::)    ;)

I wonder where something like that would work in Des Miones?  Hmmmm?

It probably wouldn't fly under Iowa law.  Law enforcement here fights brew-pubs selling growlers.  The pubs can't even sell their own beer in growlers without having a distributor pick it up and redeliver it back to the pub.  It might be a good little money maker if you could get a license though.

Yeah, and I think in many states only producers can sell growlers, not retailers.
