During Prohibition, bootleggers made their own booze by burying grapes underground or catching moonbeams in a jar of water. Raise a professionally crafted pint to the 21st Amendment with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a 64-ounce growler at Jack Russell Brewing Co. in Camino (a $20.66 value).
Jack Russell Brewing's artful brewmasters craft premium ales and lagers inside their English farm–style brewery in the heart of the Apple Hill region. Savor the elegance of Jack Russell’s smooth-drinking brews from the comfort of at-home digs with a portable half-gallon growler filled with 64 ounces of the brewery's signature suds. Tipplers select their inaugural fill-up from a range of brews that, like the slowest county-fair Ferris wheel ever, rotate seasonally, saluting the hoppy bite of the Captain Boomer's IPA, fortifying insides with the hearty oatmeal stout, or choosing from a taster’s choice of cyclical options, which may include Harvest Apple ale, Huntsman lager, and more. Groupon customers can call ahead for forecasts about beers are currently on tap. Each growler arrives branded with the Jack Russell logo and cut from clear glass, allowing customers to admire each beer's color, texture, and bioluminescence.
Nestled in the pastoral splendor of the Sierra Foothills, customers drink in fresh air and sunshine while observing the scenic views from the Jack Russell picnic area. Although not included in this Groupon, Jack Russell Brewing quiets grumbling empty growlers with on-demand refills straight from the tap ($12).
