Craft beer has officially become a trend. And it’s definitely one that we’re willing to get behind! Check out these restaurants and growler shops (BEERtiques if you will) that can offer you hard-to-find craft beers and brands that you’ve never heard of, but will likely want to have again and again.
What is a growler shop? For a deep history that could win you hundreds of dollars on Jeopardy check out the Beer Advocate website definition and history. For the elementary definition, I’d describe a growler shop as a heavenly place where you can stop in and buy craft beer in one of those moonshine jug thingy’s (hey, I said an elementary definition). You don’t consume beer there so it’s different than a bar. More like a beer store, hence the nickname, BEERtique.
