I read a thing on brewsnews or something. Since refilling growlers is banned for covid related reasons the breweries are using the milk bottles as a low cost substitute to save customers the expense of a new glass growler every time.
Let's hope some of these relaxed restrictions stick around after the current crisis! Reminds me of holidaying in NZ where bars and breweries would fill anything that would fit under a tap.
Although I am a little surprised that the breweries can't run a growler return program at all - hopefully there will be some more thought put into how those with industrial dishwashers can receive and re-use after cleaning.
Ill never forget being in NZ as a 18 year old and wondering why the fuck my mates dad had a 2 Ltr coke bottle full of beer in his fridge? Then a couple of days later I saw a barrel?, think it was a barrel?, in the drive thru bottle shop with a tap on it and somebody filling up a plastic container. 😃 Awesome. 🍻
Future Mountain in Reservoir is doing Corny fills - 9L and 19L If you go smaller than 9L i think they said they will charge you the growler price. Send an email to: email@example.com If you want the pricing.
if you do get the pricing, please don't post it on the forums. They would prefer that info stay off the webs.
Volcanic Brewing/Toowoomba Homebrewers are doing growler fills during shop trading hours (within licensed hours AKA 10AM+). Contact them first to confirm. Taproom still closed as the distancing requirements don't permit a viable number of patrons at this time.
