“First Friday” Growler Fill Prices Raised to $7 at Scotty’s Brewhouse

Once upon a time Scotty’s Brewhouse offered Thr3e Wise Men growler fills on the First Friday of every month for $5. And they have been know to have growler specials other times of the year as well.

By the fall of 2015 the price of a growler fill was increased to $6.

This upset me a little, but this was the trend with other Indianapolis breweries as well. Except my other choices had a growler fill sale weekly. So I have stuck to only hitting Scotty’s on First Friday and spreading the local craft beer love the rest of the month.

Fast forward 2 and a half years to March 2017, and now the cost of filling my Thr3e Wise Men growler fill of Bulldog Brown is $7 on First Friday at Scotty’s Brewhouse. On First Friday the Centennial Martyr Double IPATwo Lucys Blackberry Wheat will set you back $8 now.

For those wondering, the normal price to fill a growler at Scotty’s is currently $12, with the glass growler costing $6 (if you don’t already have one). Every Tuesday, growler fills run $10.

And for those unfamiliar with a “growler”, it’s a 64 ounce (half gallon) jug, which equates to 4 pints (16 ounces) of beer. At $6 you’re looking at $1.50 per pint. At $7 you’re looking at $1.75 per pint. Cheaper than buying a pint out, but more expensive than buying a mass produced case of something.

As for what I’ll end up doing in the long run, I’m not really sure. I’ll probably swing by on occasion, but I may end up visiting some of my other favorites more often instead. At least until everyone else raises their prices too. Which I’m sure will happen. It did last time when we were sitting at $5.

For those of you who are curious about the history, here’s a trip down First Friday Growler Fill Lane. I have to say I really love some of these ads.
