I have been meaning to try this place out for a while, glad I finally got around to it.

Growlers is situated in the hipster-ish-y area of NoDa. It stands out from the rest of the local shops with a big 200 year old refurbished wooden door with steel hardware, I am told it is from an old Chinese compound. The atmosphere is rustic, with the exception of the TVs that line the walls.

When we went in it was pretty busy, but the service didn't seem to suffer for it. The server was with us quickly and our beers were served promptly. The server seemed to have a good grasp on the beer menu, and was able to offer up some suggestions. Quick, friendly, knowledgeable service.

The menu is great pub, beer food. They make their own sausage and brats in house. The food was really good (Try the Reuben). They have about 15 beers on tap and an old hand pump cask engine (from 1936 I think). Their beer menu rotates fairly quickly, and always has several different styles represented; unlike some places that will fill their tap list with all IPA's and Imperial Stouts...

All in all, I really liked this place. Reasonably price, good food and good beer. What more could you ask for?

Excellent little beer bar in the heart of NODA. Around a dozen drafts and they typically have something on cask. They've really stepped up their food as well - the menu matches the brew selection in that it's relatively small but very interesting. I highly recommend this place.

4.19/5  rDev +1.7%
vibe: 4 | quality: 5 | service: 4 | selection: 3.5 | $$

Atmosphere: Small bar with a lot of character. The table made out of an old wood door in the middle is beyond cool. Nice place to unwind and have a drink.

Quality: The ever changing beer offerings seem to take in the North Carolina brewing industry and pepper in some quality microbrews from around the country.

Service: While not knock your socks off great, even though it's a small place they seemed a bit understaffed, they worked well with what they had to make sure your glass never ran dry.

Selection: The nitro and cask offerings are cool to say the least but with only 12-18 beers on hand your selection is limited.

Food: Didn't try but the menu consists of oysters and general pub fare.

Overall: Nice bar, cool atmosphere, and not your general swill beer and burger place. The "old school" beer machine to draw out of cellar temperature casks is a nice touch. Prices seemed inline with other micro/specialty beer bars. Will go again.

3.78/5  rDev -8.3%
vibe: 3.75 | quality: 3.75 | service: 3.5 | selection: 4 | food: 4 | $$$

Atmosphere: nice wood furnished small sit down bar. pretty upscale furnishings. but over all its got a good vibe going on.

Quality: they seem to represent north carolina well and give the big shots from around the world their time. they have a pretty solid brewery line up

Service: nothing that stands out as good or bad, fairly average but not in a bad way

Selection: not the largest but they keep the style representation spread out. love the nitro and cask spots on the list.

Food: oysters and pub fare. pretty good in my opinion.

Overall: a cool place to go for hanging out and getting a drink. definitely a place to find good beers from around the us or NC. I love the cask and nitro offerings since thats not so common these days.

This is a small, very homey feeling bar but they had several great beers on tap including a couple of one-offs by Olde Hickory. The bartender definitely knew her stuff & was nice as well as knowledgable.
Even on a Sunday when Carolina was playing at home, this bar was quite empty but it felt like it was filled with knowledgeable beer people
