Freedom for the 64 oz Growler!

When I moved here four years ago, I tried to get a refill on a half-gallon (64 oz.) growler that relocated here with me from Northwest Indiana, just outside of Chicago. I mean, what's the big deal; they're everywhere in the Midwest and elsewhere.  No, I was told, can't do that. At first I thought it was because the growler was some kind of out-of-state alien, that needed proof of state residency. Well, we all know the story.....





On July 1, 2015, the half-gallon growler will be legal in the state of Florida.  WooHoo! Independence Day of sorts...

Where will you be on July 1 at 6:40 pm?  According to the Florida Brewers Guild, this is the time that there will be statewide toasts cheering the 64 oz growler in Florida. I'm not sure what the other states think of all of this, but, hey, it's another reason to party here in the Sunshine State, and what a way to kick off the Independence Day weekend.  

For us here in the Jacksonville area, as of this writing, I am aware of these Growler Independence events on Wednesday, July 1:

Engine 15 Brewing Company, Jacksonville Beach, will be offering its new 64 oz. growler for sale for $6 (that's $2 off the normal price). And, you can get a free pint of E15 beer while you wait for the fill. 

And, of course, say Cheers at 6:40 pm for the statewide toast! 













Intuition Ale Works, in the Riverside area of Jax, will also be hoisting the pint glasses at 6:40pm for the statewide toast.

What's more, bring in your Intuition gallon growler between July 1 and July 4, for a trade-in for a free half-gallon Intuition growler, which the good folks there will fill for free (regular release Intuition beers only).












Green Room Brewing, Jax  Beach, is tapping a new brew on July 1, starting at 4pm: Citrus Paradisi Pale Ale.  This is an American Pale Ale with Amarillo, aged on fresh Florida grapefruit. And, here's the deal: buy a new Green Room 64 oz growler for $6, and get it filled with the new beer for only $5. 




HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY, AND HAPPY GROWLER FREEDOM DAY
