I just picked up a couple of jugs o' beer from the college's teaching brewery: www.firstdraft.ca One Lager. One Ale. We're going to test run them on Boxing day. I used the safe way to transport precious cargo. They call those jugs "Growlers" They only had Ale in regular bottles and I wanted both the Lager and Ale. So, I went for a couple of Growlers. Super fresh beer. There's a hand-written label on each with the date that it was bottled - usually the day you buy it because they sell so much of it. It's good in the unopened bottle for about 7 days. Once, you open it, 3 to 4 days. $15 a Growler and when you bring back the empty, you can refill it for $10. A growler holds 64 fl oz (or 1.9L depending on which way you face when you fill it ) This teaching brewery is at the same college at which my daughter is studying culinary. They have a teaching winery too that has already won awards against the commercial wineries. Review on Sunday night... or maybe Monday morning.
