Miner Brewing Company is now offering crowlers for guests who want fresh beer to go. The 32-ounce cans are filled and sealed at the Tap Room. Crowlers are easier to transport than glass growlers and they're also recyclable, Miner spokeswoman Jenna Fischer said in an email.
Miner is also now offering a unique drink called Cuvée IPA (6.4 percent ABV, IBU 52). Fischer described the Cuvee as a hybrid of wine and IPA that is bursting with notes of bright mandarin orange and earthy hops.
