The weather has cooled considerably over the past few weeks, which must mean that it’s time for a Beer Menu change at Growlers Pub. Let’s take a look at what’s new:

  • Boulevard Porter
  • Schlafly Oatmeal Stout
  • Founders Red Rye
  • Bass
  • Tin Mill Sky Scrapper
  • Hofbrau Hefe
  • Big Sky Moose Drool


  • Sierra Nevada Torpedo
  • Sierra Nevada Porter
  • Maredsous Blonde “6”
  • Koning Ludwig Hefe
  • Fullers ESB
  • Fullers 1845
  • Flying Dog Old Scratch
  • Berghoff Sundown Dark
  • Berghoff Pale Ale
  • Bell’s Porter
  • Ayinger Ur-Weis
  • Tommyknocker Pick Axe
  • Tommyknocker Maple
  • Tommyknocker Imp Brown
  • Southern Tier IPA
  • Southern Tier Porter
  • Saison Dupont
  • Phin & Matts
  • New Holland The Poet
  • New Holland Sundog
  • Moylan’s Kilt Lifter
  • Moylan’s Irish Red
  • New Holland Mad Hatter
  • Lion Stout
  • Founders Porter
  • Founders Dirty Bastard
  • Founders Centenial
  • Sam Adams Imperial White
  • Monks CafĂ© Flemmish
  • Gulden Drak
  • Big Sky Trout Slayer
  • Big Sky Scapegoat
  • Big Sky IPA

While the draught list as a whole still leaves a bit to be desired (really guys, do we need 1/6th of your list devoted to some sort of wheat beer?) and the dropping of Single Wide IPA makes me a bit sad. But the addition of Red’s Rye is a fine consolation gift and makes this guy very happy.

I think the place where the largest strides have been made are in the bottle list. There are some damn fine beers from some damn fine breweries on this list. I count five American IPAs that are on the list. For us hopheads, that’s some great news.

Also nice to see some great porters and stouts on the list as well. I’m also happy to see more of a push for American craft breweries. American brewers are brewing some great beers right now and it’s good to see more of them available.

I think there are some great improvements over the last few beer menus. I think there is some work left to be done, but I think this is a fine start at getting back into a craft beer nerd’s heart.
