A new craft brewpub is open in Jeffersonville. Growler USA houses 100 taps along a 42-foot bar, all local and craft selections. The beer list features only microbrews, all American made.
You’ll find selections from several local and regional breweries, including Donum Dei brewery, Falls City brewery, Flat Twelve and more. There are also plenty of American beers from all over the country, like New Belgium’s Accumulation White IPA, Big Sky Brewing Company’s Moose Drool Brown Ale and Deschutes Black Butte Porter.
For non-beer drinkers, there’s local kombucha, wine and soda.
The restaurant can seat 150 people and a shaded patio area–with two communal fire pits–has room for 66 more.
The menu features twists on American classics, and all the food is made from scratch in the kitchen. A few dishes: Fried chicken and french toast (the brewpub recommends pairing it with an Amber Ale like Station 26’s American Copper), loaded spuds, bacon skillet mac and a bromance burger.
“When we began looking at different restaurant concepts, what caught our attention about Growler USA was the brand’s ability to take a national concept and tailor it to our community,” owner Greg Brown said in a statement.
“Jeffersonville is home to a big foodie market, and there’s a great craft beverage culture too. We’re excited for the opportunity to give our community a place to try their favorite craft beers, wines, and more that they’ve grown to love, while continuously trying new flavors from our rotating taps.”
While the ribbon cutting was held Friday afternoon, Growler USA had a soft opening a few weeks ago, allowing employees to work out some kinks.
“On day three, you know, we were at capacity and just weren’t doing a great job with it,” Brown said. “And we immediately reacted to that, kinda shrunk the size of the restaurant and kinda slowed down the pace in there to give our crew a chance to train and really be able to service crowds that big. So we’ve been picking up the pace for the last three weeks.”
Growler USA is the first business to move into Bridgepoint Commons, a multi-million dollar development just east of the 265 interchange. New restaurants, a movie theater and a car wash are among the businesses moving into the fast-growing part of Clark County.
Growler USA Jeffersonville is open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 11 a.m. to midnight on Saturday and Sunday.
