The Growler Garage & Tap House

54 taps of craft beers, ciders, teas and wines. Great pub food as well!

Take a break, relax, and have a seat. Take in and experience our décor which will take you back to earlier times. No time to sit and hang out with friends? Fill a growler to take with you and enjoy later.
Choose from 54 taps of brewery fresh craft beer, cider, kombucha tea, wine, sangria and soda. As a popular tap is depleted, enjoy the excitement as we tap into a new experience.
At the Growler Garage it’s about friends, it’s about the experience, it’s about fun, and it’s about time……..

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Or,as we say at 'The Garage'......"it's opening day of BEER SEASON!"

Sybaris Restaurant

By now we have all heard the terrible news about the fire at Novak’s Hungarian Restaurant. We all love their food and we all love the Novaks. I have seen posts asking how people can help the family and staff. Here’s your chance!

Everyone that wants to help the Novak’s and their staff, let’s do this! We are working on a fundraising dinner to be held at the Albany Senior Center on Sunday, March 10th at 5 pm. Sybaris is collaborating with the Albany Downtown Association and area restaurants (including our friends at First Burger) to raise money to help the Novaks rebuild and their staff to cover living costs while out of work. We’ll be announcing more details later but, for now, consider this your “Save the Date” notice. Buy tickets to the event or donate online at the Albany Downtown Association webpage and page.

Anyone that would like to donate items for the silent auction, participate in helping set up, take down or donate food (restaurants and caterers), can get in touch with Janel at Sybaris Restaurant- [email protected] or Lise Grato from the Albany Downtown Association [email protected]

Thank you for your support!

Happy National Trivia Day!
We are waiting to celebrate it Wednesday with Mr. Bill's Traveling Trivia Show :) 6:00 - 8:00PM
Come join the fun!

National Trivia Day is observed across the United States each year on January 4.

The word trivia is plural for the word trivium.

In ancient times, the term “trivia” was appropriated to mean something very new.

Nostalgic college students in the 1960s, along with others, began to informally trade questions and answers about the popular culture of their youth. After writing trivia columns, Columbia University students Ed Goodgold and Dan Carlinsky created the earliest inter-collegiate quiz bowls that tested culturally (and emotionally) significant, yet virtually useless information, which they dubbed trivia contests. Trivia (Dell, 1966) was the first book treating trivia in the revolutionary new sense, authored by Ed Goodgold and Dan Carlinsky. This book achieved a ranking on the New York Times bestseller list.

Over time, the word “trivia” has come to refer to obscure and arcane bits of dry knowledge as well as nostalgic remembrances of pop culture.
In North America, the game, Trivial Pursuit peaked in 1984, a year in which over 20 million games were sold.
Steven Point, Wisconsin holds the largest current trivia contest at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point’s college radio station WWSP 89.9 FM. April 2013 hosted the 44th annual event which usually has 400 teams ranging from 1 to 150 players. The competition, which is open to anyone, spans 54 hours over a weekend with eight questions each hour.

National American Beer Day is observed annually by beer drinkers across the nation on October 27.

Some fun facts:

* There are more than 2,100 breweries that manufacture beer in the United States. They range in size from industry giants to brewpubs and microbreweries.

* The U.S. produced 196 million barrels of beer in 2009.

* The U.S. consumes roughly 20 US gallons of beer per capita annually.

* In 2008, the United States was ranked sixteenth in the world in per capita consumption, while total consumption was second only to China.
Didn't see that one coming did you?

* Prohibition in the early twentieth century caused nearly all American breweries to close.

* After prohibition was repealed the industry had consolidated into a small number of large-scale breweries.

* The majority of the new breweries in the U.S. are small breweries and brewpubs, who, as members of the Brewers Association, are termed “craft breweries” to differentiate them from the larger and older breweries.

* The most common style of beer produced by the big breweries is American lager.

* Most of the smaller breweries, which were founded in the 1980s, produce a range of styles.

* Beer styles originating in the United States include:
American pale ale, Pennsylvania porter, American IPA, steam beer, amber ale, cream ale and Cascadian dark ale.

CHEERS! Do your part to get us ranked higher than CHINA!
