The Growler Garage & Tap House


It's clear to see how much we miss you growler garage... 😫
Great beer food and staff!
The Growler Garage is in the Bahamas!
Hi are you open NY Eve please?
Enjoyed a nice lunch and great beer there today. Loved Fort George's "From Astoria with Love" and our little Tessa "loved" the nachos (though she is only allowed 4 little chips).
Love the Elysian Punkuccino with the cinnamon spice rim! Must try!! 🍺
After rakin' leaves and fertilizin' the yard...Gettin' my Oktober Fest on courtesy of The Growler Garage & Tap House...
The pineapple cider is out of this world wonderful!
Is there Trivia this week?
Any place admired by Scott Schuler KRKT is a place we want to have "know our name".
Great service as always. Thanks to them we now have great beer to serve from home. Hard to beat small town people and service.

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…….. Cheers!

White House advises public to avoid groups of more than 10, asks people to stay away from bars and restaurants

Here at Growler Garage we will be implementing no more than 10 people within our establishment at any given time. We will remain open until we are told otherwise. As per Kate Brown all restaurants and bars are to only offer take out or delivery effective March 17. We are trying to learn what this means for us and how to navigate these unusual circumstances. The White House advised all Americans to avoid groups of more than 10 and urged older people to stay at home altogether in a set of new guidelines designed to fight a spreading coronavirus outbreak.

[03/16/20]   Trivia has been cancelled at least until April 1st due to Coronavirus/Covid 19. I am unable to ensure the health and safety of my patrons i.e. I can not ensure social distancing measures, nor can I ensure a limit of 10 individuals if we proceeded with trivia and throwback Thursday events. Updates will be made as needed.
