The 64-ounce Public House growler (a time-honored tradition in brewpubs and breweries for bringing draft beer home or to parties) is available now for $8 empty, or filled on the spot with a half-gallon of your favorite craft brew for between $22-$52, depending on your taste.

The flight will include Tenaya Creek Oktoberfest, Firestone Oaktober, Warsteiner Oktoberfest and Big Dog’s Pumpkin Barleywine.
