But sometimes a six pack of Southern Tier 2x IPA and Hopnotic is just too hard to pass up.
I only do growlers when it's something that is truly unique and I plan to drink it up within a day (I'm the only beer-drinker in my house). But with some growler fills approaching $15 around here, it has to be something earth-shattering.
I picked up three bombers of Black Butte for $2.99 a pop last night. One of my favorite micros for the money. Nine bucks for about the same amount of brew and I don't have to drink it all up the same day.
