Well kids, I've gone and done it now. Here at Franklin's we are now selling pre-filled one liter growlers out of the General Store.A while back Papa Franklin and I went up to Duclaw Brewing and checked out a one head counter pressure bottle filler they had for sale and well...bought it, along with a sh$* ton of one liter flip tops. So last week Jared Aumen(the brewery's summer intern/lackey) and myself took the task of filling these packages complete with a label.The first offering is our Tripel Bliss, a Belgian-style Tripel that checks in at 9% ABV. These one liter flip tops are unfortunately not refillable in the pub, but they have many other great uses including using them for home brewing,crafts, storing oil/vinegar/homemade hot sauce or anything else you can think of.These are limited, so when we sell out we sell out. We don't intend to package our whole lineup, mainly just some of the bigger/specialty beers that we feel will hold up decently in the bottle.
