I hereby proclaim 2010 the year of the growler! Yes — the growler has been back for a while, but don’t be surprised if more people show up to your Super Bowl party with growlers than six packs. A New York Times article from last month (The New Old Way to Tote Your Beer) provides a pretty good list of places where you can get your fill on, but today we suggest taking advantage of a great deal at L’asso.
The Soho pizza place is offering customers $5 growlers with the purchase of a large pizza pie today only. The $5 price tag includes the growler itself and the 64 ounces of beer to go with it. They have Southampton Double White, Lighthouse Ale, Oreilly’s Stout, and Coors Banquet on tap.
My favorite brewery — Sixpoint — will also be pouring six of their beers at Whole Foods on Houston Street from 1PM – 5PM.
