In addition to tracking new local businesses, another interest of mine is craft and local beers. So, I think it's great news that the first of what will soon be two Growler Guys locations in Spokane is now open.
The first local location of The Growler Guys chain is the location in North Spokane. That location is in a Heritage Village Shopping Center close by The Y at 9329 N. Newport Hwy. The new store is creating an interesting corridor of beer with Total Wine & More and Pints Alehouse, both huge supporters of the Spokane beer scene within a mile of each other on the same arterial roadway.
The North Spokane Growler Guys is in more then 1,500 square feet of space and sells and fills growlers of beer. In fact that's the main base behind the chain's stores. The chain is based in Oregon and is growing chain with nine locations around the Northwest and more coming soon.
Growler Guys stores are also gaining a name for themselves by the amount of beer taps available. Growler Guys locations have around 50 beers on tap, including the new North Spokane location who's web site currently list 48 taps from the common to the more difficult to find beers. And, yes plenty of beers from Spokane based microbreweries.
Also, shortly after the news came out that Growler Guys was coming to North Spokane, was a mention of another coming to the South Hill. That location was to be at 2933 E. 29th, but the liquor license there was fought by the nearby Southside Christian Center church. The chain backed out of that location due to the church's opinion .
But now The Growler Guys has found a new location on the South Hill and WILL be opening soon. The new South Hill Growler Guys will be similar to the others and will be at 1314 S. Grand Ave. Suite 4. That's nearby the new South Hill AAA offices and a short trip down the hill from Manito Tap House. We don't have an opening date for the South Hill store yet but will be watching for it closely.
