Entrepreneurs and husband-and-wife team Greg and Ann Humes will celebrate the grand opening of Growler USA, located underneath the brand new Milehouse Apartments at 8300 160th Ave. N.E., on Aug. 25.
Dedicated to pouring only 100 percent American-made craft beverages, Growler USA Redmond features selections from Washington and other Northwest brewing companies such as Black Raven, Hales and Georgetown, and small-batch breweries such as Stoup, Postdoc and Snoqualmie Falls. In addition to microbrew beer, Growler USA serves hard cider, draught wine, root beer, cold-pressed coffee and kombucha tea. Growler USA also offers beer flights, and growlers-to-go for those interested in purchasing something to enjoy at home or at tailgate parties.
As a part of its commitment to provide a better craft beverage drinking experience, the Humes’ pub will offer a menu with a variety of beer bites, salads, sandwiches, and a kids’ menu, all created to ensure flavors and aromas complement each beverage. The Growler USA commitment to the craft beer movement is articulated in its True to the Brew philosophy that ensures each craft beverage is conditioned, held and dispensed as fresh and spirited as the brewer intended. That approach includes Cicerone Certified Beer Server training for all servers and beertenders.
“Providing Redmond with 100 taps of the best craft brews in a casual, family-friendly gathering place fit our lives and goals very well,” said Ann. “We appreciate the craftsmanship of our local brewers and take pride in supporting this community.”
“We know Washington residents have an immense passion for craft beer and a desire to support local entrepreneurs,” said Dan White, CEO and founder of Growler USA. “Combined with Ann and Greg’s enthusiasm for our mission, Redmond was the perfect fit for Growler USA and we are confident the pub will quickly become the go-to neighborhood gathering place.”
