    Retail Growlers

    We are considering selling one of our Ales at a local grocery store. I would like to use growlers. Does anyone have any experience with pre filled growlers? Are there any special precautions I should take that are different from pouring one in the brewpub? We plan to use a filler instead of the tap, so we will purge oxygen. Any cap concerns? I am thinking we will need to shrink wrap the cap on there so it is tamper proof. What else am I missing? I know labels will need approved like any other bottle. Anyone with experience?

    you might consider contacting Rogue Brewing. they sell growlers at retail and have been doing so for a quite some time now. i bet they'd be a wealth of information as to any special requirements.

    Use some sort of counter pressure filling method otherwise you will have very flat beer sitting on shelves and ultimately damaging your brand with consumers
