General – 1pm-8pmWe have multiple bars planned to speed up your access to all of our beers. Plan on filling your Anniversary Beer growler at the Brewer’s Bar or Main Bar. We WILL be offering growler fills all day. At the main bar, we’ll have a dedicated growler filling person to speed things up. Please bring in your Smog City growler or purchase one of new ones. Sorry, we do not fill growlers that are blank or from other breweries.
Are those Growlers Special?Our Limited Edition Growlers are ultra special! We ordered a limited number of them and that is all there will be now and forever. Next year will be another year, another design…so be sure to get your hands on these little honeys before they run out! We will also be selling Special Anniversary T-shirts based on this awesome design! Ask your beertender for available sizes.
