Krug Park (Downtown Benson)

59 Beers on Tap and 200 more in the bottle!  Sounds like my kind of place!

This place has a phenomenal beer selection.  Everything is in the right glass, right temperature, etc.  

Highly recommend.
Stable genius.

I was so excited to finally make it to this place and was disappointed by a "too hipster for you" kind of attitude out of one of the female bartenders. There was a male bartender working that was warm, welcoming, and helpful. She was the complete opposite and left a bad vibe on the evening.

Just saw that they are selling growlers now and you can take any of their tapped beer home with you. I may have missed a change in the laws, but I thought the reason was crowlers were being used was b/c they couldn't do the normal growler at these places.

I couldn't tell from that photo on their FB, but were they full 64oz growlers or were they the little 32oz?

Each bar/shoppe has to have their own growler, but can fill with any beer now. You will need to bring their growler back for refills. Law changed this year I believe which is why all the crowlers popped up. Crowlers are cheaper to buy than the growlers and then you don't have to worry about bringing it back for refilling.

Seems like most people I talk to are switching to a Crowler because it stays fresher way longer.

I was at the Casual Pint tonight and they don't have glass growlers any more. They are carrying a stainless steel 32oz one. But at the price I passed on getting one.

I was told only the breweries can offer 64 oz growlers --- because of law everyone else is 32 oz containers

Isn’t that like $20/month?
