Rooting for beer, here! Fill up your growler, but with what?

Just in time for the heat wave, word’s in this week from the folks at RAM Restaurant & Brewery: they’re celebrating summer by offering $5.99 growler-fills of their beers at eight Puget Sound locations. The deal’s good through July 11. What’s a “growler” you ask?

Late to the “Fill ‘er up!” fold, that’s exactly what I said last summer when friends (now sailing the Seven Seas in search of a cold one) showed up with one in hand. That refillable 64-ounce jug came emblazoned with the Georgetown Brewing Company’s logo and filled with my beer-of-choice, Manny’s Pale Ale. Cut to last weekend, when at the request of our thirsty 12-year-old, my husband hit Gallaghers’ Where-U-Brew — our local do-it-‘yerself brewery and tasting room — and came home with a root beer-filled growler.

Cold root beer’s in stock at my house, but when it comes to “real” beer, my chilled pint glass awaits while sadly, my growler’s run dry.

Now allow me to pop the question: What brand of beer would I find in your fridge? And when you’re tapped out and on the prowl for a growl(er) where do you fill it?
