While Growler’s Pub might not have the best beer menu in town (sorry guys I don’t care what growlers.gifthe RFT says, Cicero’s has a better selection) they do have some of the best pub food in St. Louis (sorry Cicero’s, I think your food sucks.) My complaint about Growler’s has always been that while they carry a lot of beers (32 draught, 99 in bottles) they carry a lot of pretty boring beers. I mean, how many pale lagers and pils can one person drink?

While attending the last menu change tasting, I discussed my concerns complaints about the menu with Frank Crump the Assistant General Manager (and beer guru) at the Sunset location. He agreed that there wasn’t enough variety on the menu and promised big changes on the the 07 Fall/Winter menu.

Here’s a quick rundown of what is new on this beer menu:


  • Bass
  • Blue Moon Seasonal Draught
  • Schlafly Dry Hopped APA
  • Leffe Blonde
  • Hoegaarden Witbier
  • Newcastle
  • Warsteiner Pilsner
  • Breckenridge 471 Double IPA
  • Sierra Nevada Pale Ale


  • O’Fallon Seasonal Bottle
  • Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat
  • New Belgium Abbey Ale
  • Rogue Brutal Bitter
  • Old Rasputin Imperial
  • Sam Adams Cream Stout
  • Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout
  • Breckenridge Vanilla Porter
  • O’Fallon 5 Day IPA
  • Huber Bock
  • Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout
  • Bell’s Two Hearted
  • Leinekugel Double Bock Buck
  • Spanish Peaks Honey-Raspberry
  • JW. Dundee Honey Brown
  • St. Rogue Red Ale
  • Lowenbrau
  • Beck’s Dark
  • Moosbacher Kellerbier
  • Cooper’s Vintage Ale
  • Tohey’s New
  • Grimbergen Double Ale
  • Grimberen Blonde
  • Unibroue Chambly Noire
  • Harbin Lager
  • Staropramen
  • Koning’s Hoeven Dubbel Trappist
  • Koning’s Hoeven Tripel Trappist
  • Koning’s Hoeven Quadrupel Trappist

Overall I’m pretty excited about the new menu, sure you still have a lot of the boring beers, but there are a lot of beers I haven’t tried and some old favorites that I’m very happy to see back. Frank has also told me that he is pushing hard to put a Unibroue beer on draught, so hopefully we’ll see that one really soon.
