Craft beer on tap–to go!

For centuries, every sizable town had its own brewery. The beers were rich and varied, limited only by the brewmasters’ imagination. However, in the days before bottles or cans, sampling a brewery’s beer meant going there in person. Today, the craft brewing industry is more exciting than ever. And now Growler Grlz brings the breweries to you. Cheers!

Better than a bar – We're Bringing New Brew to You.

What if you took a road trip to Hawaii to check out a new brewery, but when you got there, it kinda left you flat. Growler Grlz Growler Filling Station brings the breweries to you, from across the state, the country and beyond. Sample the latest beer here first before you commit: have a taste, a flight or a pint and see what hits your sweet spot (our helpful staff can guide you). Then fill up a reusable growler so you can enjoy more later.

  • Fresh craft beer on tap, in volume, and at refreshing prices.
  • Eye-popping selections of all your favorite beer styles – and others you deserve to know better.
  • The freedom to drink fresh craft beer on your terms: where, when and with whom you want. Need ideas? Picnics, parties,tailgates, barbecues, bonfires, inside, outside and in any kind of weather.

Quality, quantity & travel-friendly.

Before cases, cans and bottles, the only way to drink beer at home was by hauling it in a pail, jug or jar. In the old days, your local pub would top off your bucket, slap a lid on it and send you on your way.

  • During the journey home, sloshing beer would creep out from under the lid. The escaping CO2 made a "growling" sound and a name was born!
  • Well, maybe. Another theory holds that customers and barkeeps would “growl” at each other over the level of beer in the bucket.
  • Either way, at Growler Grlz, you won’t find any leaky tin buckets or stingy barkeeps. Our growlers are stylish and secure, waiting to be filled (to the top) with fresh, delicious, local and hard-to-find beers.

Beer, variety, convenience & beer.

Granted, you may be willing to drive four hours just to taste the hottest new brewery’s seasonal selection, but now you won’t have to.

  • Choose from FORTY TWO (42!) taps of beers across all styles–from varied local favorites to more distant options, for you to take home in either a 32-oz or 64-oz growler.
  • Get your hands (and lips) on beer that isn’t bottled or canned, or even available outside the brewery itself.
  • Forget St. Patrick’s Day. At Growler Grlz, “green beer” takes on a whole new meaning. Our containers are reusable, recyclable, sustainable and earth-friendly.
Choose from 42 taps of beers across all styles

The full-service filling station is back.

We won’t wash your windshield or check your oil, but we will top off your tank. Bring in your clean, empty growler or choose one on site – either way, you’ll go home all fueled up.

  • You may like beer. You may even LOVE beer. But how well do you understand beer? Our employees are beer enthusiasts, and well-versed in the different styles and the featured breweries, so ask for guidance and don’t be intimidated. We’re out to help you understand beer better, because the more you know, the more you'll appreciate great beer.
  • Different sizes and styles let you choose a growler according to your thirst level and venue: going tailgating? If you can’t take glass, might we recommend something in a stainless steel? Don’t need a full half-gallon? Opt for a more compact 32-ounce growler.
  • Our “field research” takes us far and wide, and our on-site visits with brewmasters and breweries fill us with knowledge (among other things) that we can pass on to you. We do the hard work so you can enjoy fresh, famous, notable and obscure beers from a single source.

Live Music with: Jazz Synergy Saturday September 28th, 7 pm

JazzSynergy was conceptualized in December 2016 by founding members Jim Eastwood and Ed Kincade as a high-energy jazz sextet for bar and outdoor performances. We recruited talent and have continued to build the band, developing the sound and line-up along the way.
RJ Pitts (tenor saxophone) - Our featured artist, RJ has performed and studied jazz saxophone for decades, including time in the US Navy band. You can hear many influences in his playing and his solos weave emotion, lyricism and engery into a unique, often blistering, sound.
Ben Robinson (trumpet)- Joining JazzSynergy in 2018, Ben is a Jazz Studies student at UNC. He’s a serious addition to the front line. He holds his own with a depth of knowledge and chops that belie his youth. He brings energy and swing to his featured pieces and solos and holds his own on stage with RJ. Catch their “trading” solos “conversations” at our next show!

Chris Lascola (bass)- Chris spent his 20’s gigging in the Chicago jazz scene. He is a highly intuitive player with a wide range of influences. Check out his hot sound on upright bass!
Ed Kincade (guitar)- With his soulful, bluesy, Chicago sound, Ed’s living his dream performing jazz out on the local scene.
Jim Eastwood (piano)- Jim started playing the piano at age 7. Initially a classical player, he’s been playing jazz for the last decade, plays in 3 bands locally and is a fixture in the Durham Jazz Workshops, where he can be found most Monday nights.

JazzSynergy performs straight-ahead jazz, blues, bossas and funk and performs regularly at Watts and Ward in Raleigh and various venues in the Chapel Hill-Durham area. Look for them this summer playing outdoor gigs all over the Triangle!
