    Nice article by @BrewProf on growlers that will keep #beer carbonated. Some very cool ideas here: http://t.co/lCncs9dObu #WhyIsMyBeerFlat

    A few people talked about growler prices. I didn’t talk about price for a few reasons. (1) price is extremely variable. The local Whole Foods was selling growlers of Sculpin for $10 during their happy hour. A six pack runs $15 in these parts. (2) there is a “premium” to be paid to ensure you are getting a fresher beer. Given the popularity of heavily hopped beers this is a more important factor. (3) I’ve also found that stores bring in more “rare” beers that aren’t bottled. So it’s an opportunity to bring home something you can’t ordinarily buy in a bottle/can and won’t set you back $5+ per pint at a bar.
    However, growlers certainly aren’t for everyone.

    Love this! My husband and I were just considering buying a growler and realizing that there was no point because we couldn’t drink it all before it went flat. So helpful! Thanks for this post!
