A couple of years ago I wrote a story about my first experience at a Growler Fill Station.  It was The Growler Guys East Side Bend Oregon Growler Station where I filled 2 growlers with Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA for $9.99 per growler before heading back to Boise with my Bend Ale Trail Silipints in hand.

Upon my return to the Boise Area, I told everyone about my experience at the Growler Fill Station and how I wish we had Growler Fill Stations in the Treasure Valley.   One of my friends in the Snake River Brewers Club told that a Growler Station would be opening in Boise and it would be called the PreFunk Grower Fill Station.  Well since then, it seems like everyone has a Growler Station.

But now the guys that started it all are actually coming to Idaho.  And they are looking for Staff Members to work at their Meridian Location: Craigs List.

Here are some details provided by Boise Beer Buddies:

Grand Opening! April 10th & April 11th @ 2020 E Overland, Ste 100, Meridian (next to Harry's Meridian Grill);

Show your BUDDIES card opening weekend and receive a FREE Glass Growler w/purchase of a fill! Now the newest BUDDY HUB: Receive $2 Off Growler Fills all the time with your BUDDIES card! (Cannot be combined with any other offer);

Grand Opening Events:
Friday April 10th 4-6 pm Sockeye - Todd Marshall - Dagger Falls, Sockeye Maibock
Friday April 10th 6-8 pm - Payette - Nick Harvey - TBD
Saturday April 11th 2-4 - Sierra Nevada - Michael Morehouse - Hoppy Lager, Hop Hunter

AND Laughing Dog -  Greg Barnes - 219 Pils, Laughing Dog IPA
Saturday April 11th 8-10 - (Other events TBD with more local brewers incl. Crooked Fence, Grand Teton, and others)

I assume that their staffing for their Meridian Station is complete, but the good news is that they are also opening a Boise Location..

I would like to Welcome The One, The Only, Original Growler Guys to Idaho!!!
