"I think that this is going to be a great option for the craft beer fans in Toledo," manager Steve Wherry, a former brewer at Grizzly Peak Brewing Co., said in a prepared statement. "Until now, if you wanted a growler of fresh unpasteurized beer in the area, you only had whatever our two [brewpubs] in the area made to choose from. Now, we have the ability to offer any beer from any brewery that's available in kegs to fill growlers with."
The Beer & Wine Cave will fill growlers for $10 plus tax, or $13 plus tax with the purchase of a new growler, unless the product is a limited release or expensive enough to require a higher price.
The first beers available are from Toledo's Great Black Swamp Brewing Co. but the store plans to have a constant rotation of new options for beer drinkers.
"Having the ability to put on tap any keg available in Ohio means that beer drinkers in Toledo will have a wide variety of options now," Wherry said. "We'll even be able to offer brews that are only available on draft. Things that you generally can only find in a bar will now be available right here at The Beer & Wine Cave."
