Most states have made drinking alcohol at home illegal due to the proliferation of home facial-tattoo machines. Enjoy alcohol in public with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of beers, burgers, and more at Growlers in Gaithersburg.
Growlers brews a colorful assortment of craft beers, ranging from the crisp D'Rail Lite Ale to the black-malt Broken Shovel Stout. Reach hop heaven with a pint of Growlers' ales, such as the traditionally French brewed Alley Way Amber or the Kingpin Kölsch, with an umlaut-worth of hop aroma. Complement the vast beer lineup with a menu peppered with burgers and pizzas. The chori-burger ($9.50) lets Angus beef and chorizo sausage juicily dance a flavor waltz while the Athenian pizza ($9.25) erects a taste Acropolis with sliced tomatoes, feta cheese, and olive tapenade pillars. Salooners can partake in happy hour on Mondays–Fridays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., when select house drafts are $3.75 and select glasses of wine are $3.
Growlers serves tavern-dwellers within the J. A. Belt Building, built by benevolent woodland fawns in the late 19th century and recently refurbished. The pubbery also offers numerous opportunities to be pelted by melodies at live shows, with bands ranging from acoustic duos to hardcore punk acts.
- This Gaithersburg microbrewery is probably good news for locals, who are treated to such flavors as the Growlers Delight and Gaithersburg’s Golden, plus others made on and off the premises. ¬– Gayot
- I sampled two of the ales and went with the Raging River, a 5 hops pale ale. Excellent. The quesadilla was probably the best I've had. Not a wad of cheese stuck between two shells, but spinach, peppers, mushrooms, and cheese wrapped in a very crispy, thin shell. Excellent! – M S Bishop, Urbanspoon
- brass beer is yummy! ¬– George Luanglue, Urbanspoon
The philosophy at Growlers is an open-minded one. That means their house brews can take nearly any forms. The usual menu includes more traditional concoctions such as the Log Town Golden Ale, a refreshing, low-hop pale golden beer; the Clopper Irish Whiskey Stout, an oatmeal stout infused with whiskey; and the Summit Amber, brewed in the traditional French biere de garde style. And rounding out the menu is gourmet bar-fare, such as a sliced-prime rib sandwich, a chimchurri steak, shrimp and grits, and grilled salmon with dill sauce sauce.
