growing pains for growlers - stainless steel water bottles
Hey, time traveler!

If you don't know what the Growler is before last Friday, there's a good chance you'll know now. On Oct.
On the 24 th, Manitoba launched a beer roaring gas station project.
The project allows beer lovers in the province to visit the selected liquor market in Manitoba, several beer suppliers, or a semi-pint beer brewing company in Winnipegto buy a 1. 89-litre jug (or growler)
In provinces with beer bars, growlers are common
Sadly, there are every province except Manitoba.
They are usually filled in at a craft brewery or a beer bar and brought home for consumption (
Ideally in 7-10 days. )
Once the Growler is opened, chug-a-lug —
It soon began to flatten.
So what's the big deal with the growler?
In addition to freshness and novelty, growers should help promote locally made beer in the province.
The seven Growlers poured only half a pint and Fort Garry beer.
Gas stations for liquor markets and suppliers (
Half Pint, naturally, pour their own stuff at their brewery).
All core beer ingredients
Hops, malt, yeast, water
In Manitoba, we only have two breweries that produce beer in the province (
The farm transports raw materials for a beer to southern Ontario for production).
Wine Laws in Manitoba have changed a lot recently: We can order a bottle of wine at the restaurant and bring the leftovers home;
Significantly reduced the number of license types and red tape;
The province even allowed trans-provincial transport of wine from other provinces, with only one of three giving it the green light.
Now we have the Growler.
Filling stations pour locally produced beer into it, hopefully this will encourage more breweries or beer bars in Manitoba to appear in some form.
While it's too early to praise the success or critical shortcomings of the project, here are some observations/ideas during the week of the project. . .
The lineup will disappear.
Late Sunday afternoon, I took the Growler to visit the spacious kennesston cross wine market, one of the four in the city
Gas station, about 15 minutes from the time I got off the bus to come back with the growler-not bad.
When I tasted the newly developed Fort Garry black beer, the staff at the liquor supermarket told me that the wait time of the day before was sometimes 45 minutes.
On Saturday, I visited the beer supplier at the asiniboine Hotel (
The only roaring Winnipeg vendorGas station).
It's busier and takes longer
Close to 25 minutes-
This is even more frustrating considering the lack of customer space in the location.
Then product knowledge.
Staff of the roaring hotel
Gas stations are receiving extensive training on the beer they are pouring, while semi-pint people naturally have a lot of knowledge about their own beer.
It is hoped that friendly personnel of "A" will receive similar product training.
Although friendly, I chatted with them for a few minutes while I was waiting, indicating that there was not much product knowledge there.
Again, these are early ones, and I believe that over time, problems will be solved (
I will do a follow-up.
A few months from now).

Net Twitter: @ bensigurdsonI got these beers from Growlers in several cities
The beer changes according to the supply situation, and the bottle itself is $4 plus tax.
Overall, I found the main difference between a half pint beer and a garriburg beer in a regular beer
The size of the bottle is carbonated compared to the Growler. The standard-
The size of the bottle is more carbonated, while the Growler brings a softer, more creamy foam.

The Czech brothers are definitely not sharp in their way, but more in line with most of their North American counterparts here.
The freshness of the Growler's Pour may help here.

Full disclosure: this is my decision
If I go out, just bottle it (

Golden, slightly cloudy, pale, white with a lot of aromas: Herbs and grapefruit-
From the rich, lighter malt flavor of hops and some baked malt flavor, the peel flavor can be seen.
Precautions for starting up.
It is crisp and bright, rich in wine and flowers, with a taste of herbs/grass/citrus on the taste, and some lighter caramel flavors add to the round shape.
Performed very well from the Growler. 4-
