Starting this week, Tampa Bay locations of the Brass Tap will offer growler fills of from all of their taps with limited exceptions. Prices for standard 32 ounce growler fills will be between $7 and $16. They will only fill their own labeled growlers – so you can’t re-use a brewery’s growler. Brass Tap growlers will be available for $7. No news yet on 128 ounce growlers.
The locations offering growler fills include: Wiregrass, Brandon, Lakeland, Downtown St. Pete, Carollwood, and Trinity.
Brass Tap’s entry into this market is a big deal – the location in Brandon alone has – and I kid you not, I lost count at 30 – more than 30 taps. The variety of beer now available in a growler to the Tampa Bay beer drinking public is immense. Among those 30 are a number of local breweries and some international beers.
Brass Tap joins ABC Liquors which started filling growlers last year.
