    Looks like, other than their special weekly kegs, most anything they have on tap is now bottled and available as a tap room only purchase. I guess a little more costly than what a growler fill would cost but we at least have the option of taking home their small batch/pilot batch releases. Definitely a compromise I can get down with. Also, I am not sure if its every beer or just most though. Would love to take home some Monarch, Ron Burgundy, and/or their Belgian IPA...so I am very interested in seeing if these beers get bottled next time they get brewed up and released. I'd guess the Belgian IPA will, less sure about the Monarch and Burgundy as they are barrel aged and probably smaller batches overall? That's, of course, assuming they are brewed again and weren't just one and dones.

    I'd love to be able to grab a bottle of Burgundy. There's no way it will be the standard $10/bottle if they even do bottle it, though.

    Still cool!

    Yeah, I agree, it would definitely cost more than $10. Most of the small batch/pilot bottles seem to be starting at $12. These aren't barrel aged either so I'd imagine a Ron Burgundy bottle would be most similarly priced to their Cherry Saison bottles which were around $15.

    I'd still spend the money for it. And I do appreciate at least now having such an option.
