Bale Breaker’s taproom is open to the public with limited indoor seating, new hours, and added precautions. Click here for details.
In order to make sure our staff and community are staying safe, we've only allowed pre-filled growler sales at our weekly Drive-Thru, without any exchanges. However, we're hearing you loud and clear when you mention that you've just got too many growlers! So see below for a few ideas on how to repurpose these growlers, or feel free to drop them off with us. We won't be able to re-fill it just yet, but we'd be happy to take back any of your Bale Breaker growlers that you're sick of seeing stacked up at home. See you tomorrow from 12-5pm!

For the craftiest DIYers: turn a growler into a succulent planter
We found this amazing bottle DIY that we’d love to see someone do with a growler. A little more difficult than the previous tutorials, and, full disclosure, no idea if the process changes with a growler vs. a wine bottle. If you do give this a try, be sure to be safe and also to tag us and let us know how it looks! Get the growler succulent planter tutorial over on Kreating Homes.
