We encourage you to refill growlers you purchase. You save money by using a clean growler that is ready for refilling--the price is now 6 dollars every day for most of our beers. Seasonal or specialty beers are priced higher. If your growler is not clean and is swapped for a new one, the price will reflect the $2.00 growler return. We only accept rinsed and cleaned growlers for returns. Damaged (cracked, broken, chipped and the like) growlers are subject to the Vermont 5 cent return as they cannot be cleaned and reused. Thank you!
