And your logic is weird...who cares what growler they are filling they are selling THEIR product.

Really? I've never actually bought one. Most of the places I went to (Boulder, Ft. Collins, Ned area) you would pay something like $9 for the growler with beer, or $7 if you brought your own. Bring back the empty growler and get your $2 back.

Interesting, I thought you had to be in Michigan to make deposit bottles pay! (seinfeld reference!) Seriously though, i have only ever bought, not choice of bringing it back for $.

I always thought it kind of worked like how keg deposits do. Are you near Ska?

Yep, my office is about 50 ft from SKA...we actually had a 3 HB club (Montrose, Cortez, Pagosa Springs) meet out there today....hence my inebriation!

I don't have much to add to this discussion about growlers that hasn't been said, but I will bring up this...

Around here (missoula), any brewery here will fill anything you can think of, without question- although one brewery labels the caps on whatever they give you. In fact, a local bar here (not a brewery) that has ~50 beers on tap will fill any growler with any beer product for the price of a pitcher. This is beneficial sometimes when, say, I want a growler of Rogue's Hazelnut Nectar, or some other beer that I can't get on tap around here.

Ska still in the back of that industrial park?

I lived in Pagosa for a couple years. That is where I started brewing. I still have ALOT of ska bottles. Ate a lot of chilli on Tuesday nights and drank a lot of $2 pints.

And I miss it some days.
