A beer store with its very own app
When it comes to beer, making a decision can be tough, assuming you've already made the easier decision to drink at least a 30 rack. Helping you with all the choices that come after that one is The Growler Station.From a consortium of brewers, restaurateurs, and... Dan Patrick (seriously!), GS is a general store-style rathskeller brimming with freezers of craft brews, a glowing, proprietary growler-filling system, and a flat screen highlighting what's on tap, one of which is always "Dan Patrick's Draft Pick", though the Boozer here is clearly you. Should DP's frosty advice not be enough,
talk to Olberman two iPads at the front are equipped with the store's Beer Wizard, allowing you to sort their inventory via deets like bitterness, ABV, color, food pairings, and "Beer Family", who all use their hops to play for More-head State. Inaugural taps'll include Stone Vertical Epic 11.11.11, Captain Lawrence Freshchester, and Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA, and can be dropped into either a standard 64oz size or a 32oz plastic number called "The Beast"; bottles, meanwhile, are arranged by region, and count Anchor Steam Brekle's Brown, Rogue's Morimoto Soba Ale, and Evil Twin's Williamsburg Hipster, which, being beer, doesn't qualify as an American spirit.And because man can't live on beer alone, the shelves are stocked with tons of specialty eats, from cheeses & meats by Artisanal, to a house brand of nuts called GS's Nutsack, a naming decision clearly made after the easier decision to drink another 30 rack.
