    My brother and I have really started to heavily utilize the Growler fill option at many local breweries. Kind of a fun way to go. You can get a decent quantity of draft beer that may not be available in a bottle for usually a decent price. Laurelwood has the best version. (although they are out of them right now). The Hydro flask keeps it cold until you get home.

    Polished off a couple tonight, and am feeling pretty good...

    For now.

    Where do you like to go and what does it cost? Any nice bargains out there?

    My wife and I are fans of McMenamins growlers in whatever flavor catches our fancy. I like the growler idea in the pic above. Very good idea!

    I think that Deschutes' growlers are my favorite:

    Laurelwood is one of the better prices: $10 for a fill of your jar or $14 for a fill & a jar. That is for the standard jar, not the insulated bottle shown above. Mcmenamins is about $15 for a fill. I would say they are usually between $10-$15. One nice thing is all of the breweries will fill each others growler, so I just keep a jug in the trunk of my car.

    Kind of fun to keep the party going.

    Be carefully filling too many, beer goes bad quickly (24-72 hrs) once it's exposed to air.

    The New Seasons Market that just opened up at Progress Ridge in Tigard has a bar in the store with two rotating taps so you can fill your growlers while getting your groceries.

    To revive an old thread...
    If you're in the Eugene area you can purchase these at Ninkasi for $50 (64oz), save shipping. Usually 16 Tons runs a deal for growler fills. Last one I saw was $12 for a growler of Tricerahops. Also Bier Stein will do growler fills.

    Back in high school ('65 or earlier) when I was doing electric motor repairs a "growler" was used to check armatures for shorts. They passed a magnetic field through the armature and made a different sound when there was a short.
