We only fill Great North Aleworks branded growlers, but not because we like selling glass jugs. Every time you stop by the brewery to refill your growler, we will swap out your previously used growler with a fresh one that has been cleaned and sanitized with the same standards we have for our cans and kegs. You’ll also receive a brand new cap each time we fill your growler. Once you’ve purchased a growler from us it is yours to do with as you wish. There is no deposit on growlers or redemption value.
“But I already have so many empty growlers in my basement”! We definitely understand that problem and want to do our part to help. If you bring in a growler that you no longer use, we will swap you for one of our clean growlers at no charge.
“But I have this really cool stainless steel growler!” We understand this one as well. If you have another growler (stainless steel, ceramic, etc.) that is not branded by another brewery, we can fill those for you. We will clean and sanitize your growler in the same way we do our growlers. We will also label the growler with the brand of beer we fill it with.
We have two different size growlers – 32 oz. and 64 oz. To purchase a new growler, the cost of the empty growler is:
- 32 oz. glass growler – $4
- 64 oz. glass growler – $6
The average price to fill a growler is:
- 32 oz. growler fill – $8
- 64 oz. growler fill – $12
Special releases could be slightly higher. For the latest list of whats available, please see our tasting room menu.
