As first reported here back in April a new Portland outlet of the popular The Growler Guys growler fill stations is set to open just in time for Portland Beer Week on June 4th in the Grand Central Bowl Building at SE 8th and Belmont.
After starting in Bend, Oregon, two years ago, The Growler Guys are now offering franchising opportunities and the Portland outlet will be owned by husband and wife team Brendan Cocks and Kourtney Nelson. The Portland store will have 48 taps of craft beer and cider, the menu will feature local brews as well as national and international craft brews via pints, taster trays and growler fills. The specialized menu system features “virtual tap handles” that distinctively shows the tap list.
“Our goal is to have one of most compelling tap lists in the area that appeals to both the beer aficionados as well as the more casual drinker – along with knowledgeable and friendly staff that are the hallmark of The Growler Guys,” says Brendan, who will be curating the menu and running daily operations along with his brother, Bryant.
