    Any idea where the best place for growler fills is (or really anywhere in the Houston area along the I-10 corridor)? I'm primarily looking for Live Oak Hefeweizen, though I imagine any place that sells growler fills will have LO Hefe.

    Thanks

    Hay Merchant almost always has LO Hefe. Other growler fill spots are Premium Draught, Petrol Station, and Whole Foods Montrose. Petrol doesn't usually have anything from Live Oak though.

    Hay Merchant, Petrol Station, and Premium Draught are your best options. Outside of Whole Foods, the only options. Though those three always have a good selection. Petrol will not have anything from Live Oak. They will never carry them. Merchant and Premium Draught will often have LO, but it is not always on. Their websites are always up to date, so just check that.

    Edit: Also CRISP, a pizza place in the Heights will do growlers, and they almost always have Live Oak Hefe.

    Petrol Station has/had Live Oak Hefe. They had it for their NYE Brunch. Hmmmmm Live Oak Hefe and Orange Juice.

    Well that is the only time, or they have changed. Ben has said many times he will not carry Live Oak.

    Not to get too off-topic, but why won't Petrol carry Live Oak?

    They said the same thing about St. Arnold for awhile. But I'm glad to see the change regarding Live Oak. F'n love their hefe.

    I don't know. For years they have not carried it, and the guys there have confirmed. Though, I am not going to speculate. Like wsnich said, they also did not carry Saint Arnold when they first opened, but now have lots. So hopefully they are changing on this.

    Premium Draught doesn't have the Live Oak Hefe, but they have the Live Oak Primus right now.. and it is delicious! They are in the Heights just a mile or two off of I-10.
