After some reports of people receiving growlers that were either not carbonated or didn't taste quite right at 3 Stars Brewing Company's growler hours this weekend, owners Dave Coleman and Mike McGarvey have released the following statement via Twitter:
Due to some draft system complications, it has come to our attention that there were a few cases where people may have received growlers this weekend that did not measure up to our high standards. We are working to rebuild our current draft system and resolve this issue this week and will have a new system in place for this weekend's fills. If you purchased a growler that was not up to our high standards, please email us at [email protected] to make arrangements for you to come out this Saturday so we can replace your purchase with a new fill from our new draft/growler system. Thanks for your continued support and patience as we grow! Cheers!!
Via email, 3 Stars President Dave Coleman reiterated that "We want people to know we are doing the full disclosure thing and stand behind our products to ensure they have a great craft beer experience."
It seems like the problems reported were with growlers of Citra and Lemon Peel Saison. Anyone else experience problems with any other beers obtained from growler hours this weekend?
