"A new shop in Croton-on-Hudson is now offering a constantly changing
lineup of brews in growlers; most of them are not even available in
traditional bottles. The Green Growler Grocery has a half-dozen draft lines ready to fill 32- or 64-ounce jugs (about
$7 to $9, or $10 to $17 each)... The bottles cost $3.50 and can be brought
back for refills — or you can bring your own."
— The New York Times article on the Green Growler Grocery in Croton. Check out the shop's website for a list of current brews. The store also sells all you need to brew your own at home.
