As part of a commitment to staying local, Prost Brewing has continued to sell only growlers of its beer to be taken home and enjoyed outside of Prost. Prost produces no cans or bottles, which it originally had no plans on producing from its inception. By omitting cans and bottles, Prost significantly decreases its waste, diminishing its environmental impact, and further defining its beer as a truly local Denver beer that is even only sold locally.
Normally growlers do not last longer than 7-10 days on the shelf, and only around 2-3 days after opening. This would have made growlers an impractical investment for Prost. However, Prost was able to come upon a special, first of its kind machine with a counter-pressure filler that sanitizes and pressurizes the growlers in a particular way that extends the shelf-life of the growlers to a minimum of 60 days.
Of course, with a German bier hall themed tasting room voted one of the best tap-room destinations in the country, it would be in the best interest of Prost’s bier fans to make their weekly trip to Prost one that not only includes the purchase of a growler to take home, but makes time for sipping upon one of Prost’s freshest brews. With a view from Prost’s patio that overlooks downtown Denver and the very community Prost serves its beer to, one gets a warm, fuzzy feeling arising from the old world values underlying Prost’s commitment to its local community.
Now that is something to Prost to, particularly with your fellow Denver community members.
