I came to this bar for Thursday night trivia but I stayed for the sexy bartender Stefan. Not only was he dashingly handsome and muscular but his knowledge of beer was out of this world. He helped me pick out the best beers for me based on my preferences. Unfortunately I can’t come ever Thursday but when I come back I’m sure to come when I know Stefan will be there!!

I'd give 4.5 stars. Great selection of beers and nice outdoor patio when the weather is clear. It's small inside and can get very crowded especially when sitting outside is not an option. Parking can be competitive on the weekends when neighboring businesses are busy. They will fill growlers but it's a little on the pricey side in my opinion, especially for any beers considered a special release (even if it's available at lots of other taprooms). One thing I do like is that Randy's Pizza is right next door so it's easy to get a takeout order.

What a great place! pizza next door, tons of beer options, and great trivia on Thursdays. And did I mention DOGS are more than welcome?! But. Most impressively, I never fail to be impressed by the bartender Stefan Isaza. My dad loves beer and Stefan is always able to select the perfect beer for him on the first try. As a white man, obviously that is always an IPA, but they always have so many options in each category. However, more impressive, is that he always is able to choose the perfect beer for my mom as well. She hates beer, but she is always impressed to the point that she CANNOT stop talking about how in love she is with the beer he chooses for her. Definitely worthy of a great night out, and a big tip for the amazing bartender, Stefan.

Great beer selection and nice staff. Tons of beers on tap, and an awesome outdoor space to eat adjacent pizza from Randy's and enjoy a beer. My only qualm is the indoor space isn't very accommodating in the winter months, and often the staff aren't as versed in the variety of beers on their menu. I would place Sam Bottle ahead of them in almost every category, especially beer selection and space, although Growler Girlz often has a gem or two on their tap list, but the access to food makes this a great dinner spot plus beer to enjoy with friends.

Excellent selection of craft beers on tap. Quiet spot outside of prime times. Limited indoor seating but plenty outside. Friendly and efficient staff. A bit pricey for the specialty offerings.

Stefan is the best bartender in the area. His expertise, knowledge, and devilish good looks are the sole reason you should visit this establishment. If he were to leave I would no longer continue my visits to growler girls.

Stefan is the best bartender I’ve ever interacted with. His skill and grace when it comes to beer recommendations surpasses anyone else I’ve ever known. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who’s in the area.

Stefan was the most interesting and flamboyant bartender I have ever met. His knowledge of beer is up to par. He is the most entertaining and hilarious bartender I’ve met.

It's a small space with a lot of personality. If you're looking to have beer options, this is a good spot.

The beer is fresh, the variety is awesome, and for me they're close by. The staff are fonts of knowledge on their products, and you're not restricted to one brewers wares; they have beer, ales &ciders (even a wine or non alcohol or two), and you dont have to travel to multiple different breweries, they're an equal opportunity tap!

I really like this place for several reasons. Most importantly the menu is done in colors based on beer type. This is super helpful. They also have stars by selections to let you know if something is a premium beer( which means it's more to include in a flight). If you get overwhelmed they have a binder behind the bar that you can look at that has an extended description of each beer. Staff has always been kind and helpful. They had live music one of the two times I went.
