They're only serving in growlers.  You have to have one already.  I guess they're not selling new growlers for the 12 beers because they'll run out too quickly.  I have a Snowman's Best Friend that I'm going to crack open in the next day or two.

the offering from Saturday: winter warmer with fresh honey, cinnamon, and vanilla was outstanding. My own winter warmer already had cinnamon in it, but I put a couple of drops of vanilla in the glass, and wow, its good. I'll try adding honey tonight too.

Yeah the vanilla seems to be something to use very sparingly; was hard to detect anything else in their version, but it does very well alongside the spicing.

well, I put 1/8tsp vanilla extract, 3 tbsp unfermented mead, and then put a pint of my Spiced Wintry Ale on top... thankyou Picaroons, that was a very good idea.

Kyle got me a growler (including the growler itself - thanks Kyle!) for my birthday, so my guess is if you bring existing growlers you're golden.
