“The concept here is it’s brewery fresh,” says Meek. “You’re going to come to the brewery and ... we’ll fill it right up for you, right in front of you.”
Growlers will be available directly from the brewery, which is located at 866 Campbell Avenue in Ottawa.
Also, it should be pointed out that 50 cents from each growler purchase will be donated to Juvenile Diabetes research, a cause close to Meek's heart as his son suffers from Type 1 juvenile diabetes.
With the introduction of the new growlers, Kichesippi will join the likes of these other Ontario craft breweries that offer the popular 2L container: Beau's All Natural Brewing, Granite Brewery, Grand River Brewing, Mill Street Brewery, Black Creek Historic Brewery, Duggan's Brewery, The Publican House Brewery, Niagara College, and Railway City Brewery
