Free beer tomorrow. That’s what the sign promised, anyway. We have yet to find those magic taps but there are other ways to get your beer on the discounted side.

Happy hours are too short, Groupons come with too many restrictions and customer service issues, and everyone else wants to put you on a mailing list. But a handful of local breweries sell growlers at reduced cost just for coming at the right time. It's similar to a happy hour but often lasts the whole night.
