After 6.5 hrs of driving it was time for a pitt stop, and this was a nice way to break up my recent drive to Myrtle Beach from the great Pittsburgh area. Stopped in on a Sunday night around 1 am to a packed bar side full of post film fest folks. It happened to be growler nite and I was there for at least a couple of 'em. Tried to flight of tasters, nothing overwhelmed me. However, the Hopyium IPA and the People's Porter I felt were pretty growler worthy for the beach, Seeing Double IPA was tasty but I didn't see my chances surviving condo stay from the 11th floor if I were seeing double. Atmosphere was warm bright modern yet classic if with a alot of wood and well placed lighting. Dining area in the front was done for the night, bar area was pretty huge a whole other room with brewing equipment visible through the glass. No food pure and simple growler fill stop but worth definitely worth my time, on the way back home I'm trying to sell this as a meal stop. Bartender gave me some beer chatter about barrel aged beers on the horizon with Duck Rabbit collaborators. And filled my growlers masterfully, and added in that discount on the growler night. Had to use their growlers but they are solid and brown, no problem but five bucks for empties plus 9 regularly for the brew come on. I did two and it was 26 plus a pint glass purchase for the room.
