This week was a busy one here at The Growler.
With Issue 11 on stands now we are ready to kick back and enjoy the weekend. Below we’ve got a preview of great events from 612Brew’s first birthday, to Stout Week at Groveland Tap, and Indeed’s release of the 2014 Burr Grinder Coffee Ale. Oh yeah, and nothing says “I love brew… I mean you” more than some last minute Valentine’s Day plans.
Thursday, February 13th
