Growler Questions

What is a "growler”?

A growler is a glass jug that typically carries a half-gallon of fresh beer. Growlers are filled straight from the tap and sealed with a twist-cap. Once you purchase your initial glass growler, refills cost significantly less. Most breweries will fill growlers from other establishments; however, they may place a sticker from the brewery on the glass. Most breweries offer a smaller container, called a bullet, as well. Beer typically stays fresh one week after the fill date. If you purchase the growler or the bullet you cannot consume at the brewery. These sales are considered “take out.”

Can I bring my empty growler from home to refill?

Absolutely- we encourage it!

If I buy a growler, can I bring it on the bus?

Yes! We will have coolers available for you on the bus to keep your growlers ice cold and Red Solo cups for you to use.

Food/Drink Questions

What is the food situation?

You are welcome to bring your own snacks on board. Most breweries are paired with a local restaurant that you can order food from and eat at the brewery. Also, often there are a number of food trucks parked around the breweries.

Is there water available on the bus?

Yes, bottled water is available and is included in the tour price.
