Default Swing top ceramic tops

I have a 64 oz growler with a ceramic swing top that has chips in the ceramic. - Perhaps from extensive use in getting to the beer. -

Would anyone have an idea of where a person could find replacement parts for these 64 oz growlers?

Thank you

If you can't find it at your LHBS, how about sacrificing a Grolsch bottle?

There are a couple places (Northern brewer & AHB) that carry the large growler gaskets and replacement tops for the smaller bottles, but I haven't seen the large tops anywhere.

Maybe some Bondo & a little sculpting?

You can try here:

Or contact Crosby & Baker to locate a retailer.

You could try filling in the chips with an epoxy product like JB Weld. it would look a little funny but it would seal properly once again.
