The Buzz about Growler USA, Ballantyne ~ Charlotte, NC
Always on the hunt for new varieties and styles of craft beer, we headed over to the Toringdon Circle Shopping Center to visit with @CLTgrowlerDude Matt Cohen about Growler USA ~ Ballantyne and get the Buzz on one of the Queen City’s newest hot spots.
With over 100 craft beers available at any given time, the taproom / restaurant opened in January and has already secured its place as a must visit attraction for craft beer adventurers and novices alike.
A steady flow of kegs from the Carolina’s and beyond keeps their state of the art fridge packed; their draft beer chilled at 37°; and the taps constantly flowing.
In fact, so much beer is flowing through their lines, the digital menu board is frequently updating. Fortunately each keg change immediately updates on the TapHunter App, so their menu is always up-to-the-second and just a notification away.
With so many new craft breweries opening throughout the U.S., Matt, who is also the Managing partner of the Ballantyne location, says the menu and varieties their Cicerone trained servers are introducing to Charlotte is encyclopedic. They are arguably pouring some of the most unique brews from sea to shining sea.
In our opinion, Growler USA is at the forefront of craft beer variety. Their flagship Ballantyne location with its modern fridge, taproom and restaurant is not only amazing, it’s a testament to the enormity of a craft beer boom that has spread across the States and the service industry that is growing up to support it.
If you’re new to the craft beer phenomenon, don’t fret. The Growler USA menu may seem overwhelming, but beer is about individual taste preferences. Their offerings are there to ensure that they have something for everyone. Even if you aren’t sure what to try or even where to begin, just ask. The staff, under their Director of Operations Amber Margies, is ready, willing, and able to match that perfect brew to your palate.
