Default Gunnison CO Breweries

Headed to Gunnison/Crested Butte in the Morning! Any Breweries I should drop in on and grab a pint?

Was at Gunnison Brewing Co. a couple years ago. Small place, decent beers, but a cool logo.

Dropped in the Gunnison Brewery! Great experience. The brewer was there Got to listen in on him discussing future brews and fixing one on the tap that day. Pretty fun! And good beer!
On another note... I bought a growler and took it back to the cabin. My question is: can I fill this growler on my next bottling day? It's a screw top. The top has a good gasket in it. I don't really want to waste 64 oz of beer? Anyone ever done this

I used to live in Gunnison. Helped brew a batch or two at the Crested Butte Brewery and bought my first brewing supplies at the Room with A Brew home brew shop there in CB. Is the brewery still there? I wonder about the shop too, but it was off on a side street.

Great place.

Good question, because I have a very similiar growler from Rock Bottom brewery in CO Springs a couple years ago.

Growlers really aren't meant for carbonating beer. Some have had luck, others have broken growlers.
