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!
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.
All beers available in 16oz pints, generous 20oz pints, as part of a "tasting flight," and in both a 32oz growler and a 64oz growler. Prices posted at Growler Grlz.

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.
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.
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.
Growler Grlz is currently interviewing those who will proudly represent the Growler Grlz brand with a positive, high-energy attitude and who will help the team to provide an exceptional craft beer experience to our guests—and that means every guest, every time.
Notice to applicants

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!
Regardless of how it became known as a growler, all you need to know is that it’s a 32- or 64-ounce sealed, reusable container for you to get your favorite beer from one place (Growler Grlz) to another (your call). Buy it once and refill it over and over again. A full, unopened growler will stay fresh for 7-10 weeks, but after that first pour, it’s best enjoyed within 24-48 hours.
Each Growler Grlz tap represents a relationship with a brewery, and we’re forging new ones all the time. We aim to satisfy beer fanatics’ need for easy access to a variety of unique beers at more affordable prices than you’ll find at the pub. The more you visit, the more you’ll discover.
With pressure-lock seals and secure caps, growlers are the best way to make sure no drop goes undrunk. And unlike cans and bottles, growlers are reusable. Think about it – drinking beer without generating any waste! (Well, any additional waste.)
