The Beer Growler was the first growler store in the state of Georgia. (A growler is a half-gallon jug commonly sold at breweries and brewpubs as a means to sell draft beer to-go.) After Denny Young had the idea to open a growler store a problem was discovered: Georgia law did not allow the sale of growlers. In Georgia it is illegal to repackage alcohol. After talking to the state a loophole was found in the law, if Georgia would start to consider a growler an "original consumer package" filling a growler would be legal, and that is just what happened! Two months later the first Beer Growler store was opened in Athens with the second store opening in Avondale Estates 9 months later. Now, The Beer Growler has stores in Georgia and North Carolina.Read More
