What do you think of #16, by the way? I wasn't that impressed with it. It was good, but not as good as I was expecting.
Not to anger the brewing gods that are chris and john, but it wasn't the best of the troegs I've had. It definitely is not what I am used to a winter warmer being. I'm used to a porter-ish beer with spices, and a nice alcohol warmth. I know, generic description. that being said, I still enjoyed it.

I got it the first day they had growler fills 12/13, so those weren't me.

I did six months in County when I got caught eating a lightbulb in Sepulveda. Please, please read those warning labels!

It is as simple as that and 95% of the time, the law is not in the consumers favor.

I could go on about the light bulb standards that I am dealing with right now, but I will just get more pissed off.
I don't live in California but I have noticed that a lot of breweries won't send screen printed glassware there due to Prop whatever that requires all printed glassware to carry a warning that it will kill you immediately if you touch it.

I like certain beers on-tap better than in the bottle. My local bar has one such beer. I asked it they could fill a growler so I could take that beer home. They said they are not allowed to sell beer to go unless it is sealed. First question is can any bar sell beer by filling a growler? Second question is how might that growler be sealed to make the sale legal?

Sorry , I am semi inebriated so I have only scanned the first 4 pages. I have had this "law" quoted to me here in the 4 corners area of CO, but EVERY brewery in Denver will fill ANY growler.

To prove this point...instead of arguing about it...I chanllenge any of you to find this law in CO or CA. It's not about labeling bull****, it's about selling their overpriced glass.

Period.

I lived in Vail for aboot 9 years and never had a problem on I-70 from GW Springs all the way to Denver metro, but down here its different....except for San Luis brewing in Alamosa...they'll fill anything.


All about selling the overpriced, silk screened, logocrap glass. Period..

I suppose, but most of the growlers you just put down a deposit. I can understand where they are coming from not wanting to fill a competitor's product.
