Australia's Growler Filling Stations

As interest in craft beer has spread across Australia, more and more people are discovering the merits of turning up to a local brewery to get takeaways of fresh draught beer. That being the case, we thought it would be a good idea to pull together a list of all the places filling them. Hope it makes things easy for you!

While breweries let you get the beer fresh from the source, many bottleshops – and an increasing number of bars – also tap fresh kegs for filling growlers, squealers and one litre CANimals. For many beers that are draught-only releases, you'll find this is the only way you can take the beer home with you. 

Most breweries fill at weekends and many venues with listings on The Crafty Pint will update what they’ll be pouring via their social media or NowTapped feed (which you’ll find on the right hand side of their Crafty Pint pages, linked below). 

Look out for offers available exclusively to Crafty Cabal members, ranging from free branded growlers to free bonus beers and free refills at some of the country's best breweries and beer venues. 

Note: Some venues only fill their own branded growlers or those with appropriate fill lines - best to check directly if you're unsure.
