Minnesota Breweries Launch Growler Punch Card

A group of Minnesota breweries are launching a cooperative punch card program. The “Minnesota Brewery Punch Cards” are good for one growler fill at each of the following breweries:

  • Flat Earth Brewing Co.
  • 612 Brew
  • Bent Paddle Brewing Co.
  • Castle Danger Brewery
  • Excelsior Brewing Company
  • Fulton
  • Hammerheart Brewing Company
  • Indeed Brewing Company
  • Lift Bridge
  • North Gate Brewing
  • Steel Toe Brewing

The punch cards are $75, which averages out to $6.81 per growler fill. Not too shabby. Growler prices in MN can be a little steep. This is a great way to experience and support local breweries while getting a good bang for your buck. The proceeds from the card sales go to support the MN Brewer’s Association, the same group on Minnesota brewers that were behind the Save the Growler movement last legislative session.

Note: Cards do not include the cost of the container, only the growler fill. Breweries have final discretion on qualifying growler fills.

Let’s hope the MN Brewer’s Assoc. is looking at future legislation to allow any Minnesota brewer to fill any MN growler. Wouldn’t that be nice?
