The Growler Exchange Has Entered the Crowler Game

If you prefer aluminum to glass for your beer stowing needs, you'll want to head to The Growler Exchange. The growler filling station and bar has started carrying 32-ounce crowler (can + growler) as of last week.

It wasn't too long ago that crowlers were prohibited by wacky alcohol-policing agency TABC. As we reported earlier this year, "several Texas bar owners who had to stop canning beer when state alcohol regulators in 2015 settled on this brain-twisting logic: while filling bottle growlers with beer to go was perfectly legal, putting the same brew in a giant sealed can was not." But that ended this April and crowler filling has resumed.



Cost of fills will run between $7 and $12, with the crowler itself priced at $1.
