Silva and Toro Creek breweries open Paso Robles tasting rooms (CA)

“At a sleek bar overlooking the compact brewery’s 10-barrel brewing system and 20-barrel fermenters, Silva offers 2-ounce samplers for $2 and 10-ounce pours for $4. For those seeking fresh beer to go, the brewery offers 32-ounce crowlers as well as 64-ounce stainless steel Miir growlers.

Rather than brand and fill only the brewery’s own growlers, as most do, Silva stamped his growlers — $45 to buy, $20 to fill — only with #CaliforniaCraft. He plans to refill any nonbranded swing-top growlers and hopes to get other breweries to adopt similar practices.

“One growler to rule them all,” he described his goal with the vessels.

Keg distribution to area bars and restaurants will kick off soon.”
