Oh and they have a really nice "double growler" that they are filling too, but it was super pricey.  If I start filling growlers more often I might grab that because the price between the growler and the double growler refill really wasn't much difference.  I think a couple of bucks.  But the initial Hercules double growler filled was (I think) $29 vs $19 for the amber growler.  Not sure I could drink a double by myself in a night anyways.

The whole point of the growler is its being fresh.  It's not about a bargain.

So plan on opening and finishing ASAP or else just stick with regular bottles or get yourself a kegerator.

I've only ever purchased them when I'm at a brewery and want to take something home or to give someone as a gift.

That said, they're neat for parties but kind of hard to keep cold unless you have a big empty fridge or giant bucket of ice.

I agree - if you want something already available in bottles, a growler is all about bringing a really small keg to your party. That being said, I do enjoy 'em.

Ale Yeah will fill someone else's growler, but I heard they slap their own label on it, so before you go, make sure other places won't get their nose out of joint if someone else's name is on the jug.

Gotta love Eddie! And, buying a Growler, isn't that what it's all about?  Fresh beer and a lot of it!
Have you ever listened to someone for a while and wondered, who ties your shoelaces?

You can't do epic shit with basic people.

Beer is why I get up every afternoon.

Thanks for the tip! I went yesterday and met the managing partner Denny. Looks to be a place that will do well! Close to work and I will only need to rearrange the fridge shelves at work to fit the 64 oz growler and find a way to keep it from prying eyes! Imagine, a 64 oz Allagash Curiuex fresh from the tap! Mmmmmmm. Cheap too!

All Ya'lls is closing, so there goes the only Roswell place to fill growlers.  Emptying their inventory at 15-40% off and closing for sure Oct 1, if not earlier. 

If anyone knows a good growler place close to Roswell, I'm all ears.

This would be nice.  I think it would fly here in Georgia.  Growlers and Gas in one easy stop.

Moondog's is a cool spot.  I found their current Groupon and grabbed two growlers up $19.26 this morning.  The place was mobbed when the open at 11:30am.  I missed out on the Monday Night Eyepatch IPA but picked up the new Sweetwater "15" and the New Belgium Belgo.

As I was waiting for my beer, I spoke to Eleanor, one of the owners.  She told me that they have already leased a new spot in Dunwoody.
