The Growler Garage opened its doors in early September, welcoming craft beer lovers with over 21 taps of the highest quality beers by local breweries and selections from across the world. Vermont’s premier craft beer filling station has a full service tasting bar, featuring a diverse line up available to take home and enjoy in 1/2 gallon Growler and 1/4 gallon Howler fillups.
Brian Stone and South Burlington resident Liam O’Farrell are the co-owners of the new business and envision The Growler Garage as a pioneer in the journey to pour the best quality and most diverse varieties of craft beer brewed both inside and far beyond the Green Mountain State.
“There are all these amazing microbreweries popping up,” says Stone. “We want to be there for them, to spread the good word and bring them on tap.” The Growler Garage will serve as a meeting ground at the heart of craft beer culture, where both beer geek and novice alike can come together, learn about beer and taste delicious fermented brews.
Longtime friends Stone and O’Farrell were determined to bring the concept behind Growler Garage into reality after being inspired by a love of craft beer. Stone owns Garden of Eatin’ greenhouse café in Williston, and O’Farrell’s HVAC company, Mountain Air Systems, operates the ventilation and plumbing for several of the finest breweries on the local landscape.
The Growler Garage is located at 10 Dorset Street in South Burlington.
