I first reported on the program last summer back when it began as a pilot program in the Buffalo market. (Details here.) Now, it has been expanded to the Albany, Syracuse and Rochester markets.
It offers a rotating selection of up to 12 craft beers available to-go in 64-ounce growlers. Customers also can create their own six-packs from a range of 12-ounce single bottles for $9.99. Selections change seasonally and include beers from such microbreweries as Long Trail, Ithaca, Victory, Flying Bison, Troegs, Red Hook, Smuttynose and Brooklyn.
The Albany area Sunoco stores in the program are located at 62 Exchange Street at Everett Road and 1465 Washington Avenue.
The tap list at the Exchange Street location includes Stone Arrogant Bastard, Bluepoint Blueberry, Magic Hat #9, Samuel Adams Winter Lager, Davidson Brothers Oatmeal Stout and Old Burnside Ten Penny Ale.
The tap list at Washington Avenue includes Kona Longboard Lager, Old Burnside Ten Penny Ale, Brooklyn Monster Barleywine Ale, Widmer O’Ryely IPA, Adirondack Beavertail Brown, Magic Hat #9, Sam Adams Alpine Spring, Bluepoint Blueberry Ale, Ommegang Hennepin, Southern Tier IPA, Stone Arrogant Bastard and Davidson Brothers Oatmeal Stout.
A complete tap list for all the 50 or so locations across the state is available online.
