Thanks. It also looks like they are only a couple hours from home so I could do a local pickup the next time work sends me down that way. I will have to keep them in mind.

I would not be worried about them being clear if they were for my own use, but my friends may not be as careful as I am. It doesn't take long to skunk beer by accidentally leaving it on the kitchen counter in the sunlight for a day or two before they get around to drinking it.

Thanks jessej122. Welcome to the forums! I keep forgetting about Brew and Grow, and there are two locations that are fairly close to me (Bolingbrook and Roselle).

Have no idea what their shipping is like. Keystone Homebrew is who I use as my LHBS. They're a half hour from my house. About the only thing I don't buy there now is bulk hops. Great people!

For individuals, why go for a full half-gallon? You can get a case (12) of single quart flip-tops here for ~$3 each. (And there's undoubtedly all sorts of other suppliers for those.)

While it's nice to send friends home with a beer, 64 oz is a *lot* of beer. And if you still wanted to give that much away, 2x 32 oz growlers perhaps with two different selections would work well too... More variety ;-)

Thanks for the input bwarbiany.

I don't really see 64 oz as a "*lot*" of beer. It is less than a 6 pack of 12oz bottles, and it is not like I am sending them home with beer every week. Normally it is after a party that we host every couple of months for the school faculty where my wife works.

I do have a few 32oz swing top bottles, and will probably pick up a few more for the very reason you stated of sending home a couple different types of beer if that is what they want.

Unless I can find an inexpensive source for the swing tops, the 64oz growlers are actually quite a bit cheaper.

Midwest Supplies - 12 of the 32oz swing top bottles - $35.99 ($51.35 shipped)
Keystone Home Brew - 6 of the 64oz growlers - $19.95 ($35.94 shipped)
