Growler Store Carving a Niche
Following in the footsteps of Europeans and East coasters, the Growler Guys® opened its doors in early 2012. Word traveled fast among craft beer enthusiasts and general folks who wanted to test the concept. The concept is pretty cool: Our first growler store in Bend, Oregon at the Stop and Go Shell gas station has 36 of the most varied local favorites, and not-so-local brews, on tap for you to choose from and take home in either a 32-oz or 64-oz growler. You only have to buy the growler once then you can bring your bottle back and enjoy the convenience of just paying for each growler fill—while you sample as many brews as you would like.
Prices vary among the different beers. Expect to spend a little as $8.99 for a 64-oz growler fill. As a growler fill station, you can also pick up specialty food items that go great with craft beer. And, you don’t have to hurry home, special events and tastings are scheduled—and you can enjoy a brew right onsite.
