      Sorry Andy.

      But you asked me to ask (about filling other brewery's growlers) at Drakes a month ago.
      I asked the Drakes Barrel Room bartender.  She said they wouldn't fill other breweries growlers until the law changed.

      So perhaps we can bring our Russian River growlers to Drakes.
      San Leandro is closer than Santa Rosa,
      Roger.

      Unfortunately Russian River Brewing will not fill other breweries growlers,

      per Derek&apos;s attached e-mail,
      Roger.

      Not Russian River! Growler Filling Policy June 28, 2013   Our company policy regarding filling growlers: Due to a recent reinterpretation of an existing liquor law by the California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control, breweries holding Type 23 licenses are now allowed to fill other breweries growlers with the proper legal information and state label approval. We, along with several other California breweries, have decided to continue to fill ONLY our own growlers at this time for the following reasons: Quality: We feel our growler is the highest quality growler for the price on the market and have been using it for 20 years since we owned Blind Pig Brewing Company. Vinnie was the very first brewer to use this growler and we are still quite fond of its ease of use, look and quality! It is easy to fill, holds a good seal for up to a couple of weeks, and is dark glass so the beer does not become light struck. Sanitation: We currently have no means to provide adequate sanitation of other types of growlers. We also do not carry replacement parts (like screw caps).

      Logistics: We designed our entire draft system to accommodate filling only our specific growler. Growlers that are taller, shorter, fatter, thinner, bigger, or smaller will not fit properly under our taps.
      Branding: Growlers are like bottles- it&apos;s just another way to package beer to go. We work hard to make the best beer possible and are proud to put our name on it! Nothing against other breweries growlers, but we want our beer going home with you in our branded growler! Thank you very much for your understanding and enjoying our brews! Cheers- Vinnie and Natalie Cilurzo Co-Owners Russian River Brewing Company On Fri, Oct 4, 2013 at 4:15 PM, Derek Wolfgram <derek.wolfgram@...> wrote: > > Awesome.
