Anybody heard of these? A local brewery (J. Rhodells) sells growlers, which are essentially large jugs. Think moonshine. So you get it for a certain price, full of beer. Then you can take it back and have it re-filled (well, I think they swap you out a new one each time so they can steam clean it) with whatever brew you'd like. They sell a few national brands at the brewery, but also sell their own artisan beers - a few stable lines, then a few seasonal flavors, and even a line that changes the recipe slightly each month. Pretty cool and the price on refills is very reasonable. If I drank a lot of beer, I'd be all over it.
