Daily growler announces new location – the beer blog – ohio

The Daily Growler is expanding.

The Columbus growler bar announced Wednesday that it’s adding a third location. This one will be in the German Village/Brewery District and include a kitchen operated by Big Mamma’s Burritos from Athens.

“The German Village and Brewery District location presents a great opportunity to bring our growler bar concept to an urban, central city location,” growler czar John Blakely said in a news release. “We’re looking forward to serving fast casual beer to a new part of Columbus.”

The new site, which will offer more than 50 craft taps, hopes to open early this fall. The Daily Growler now operates in Upper Arlington and Powell.

The Daily Growler targets German Village for 3rd Location

Partners with Athens’ Big Mamma’s Burritos

The Daily Growler announces plans for its third location near downtown Columbus in the German Village/Brewery District area. At 702 S High St, the new growler bar will be housed in an historic building with extensive renovations in keeping with the original character of the property and neighborhood. Current plans call for opening in early Fall 2016. Interested parties can receive updates by registering at http://s. tdgi. us/tdg3.

The new location will bring key elements from the Upper Arlington and Powell stores including more than 50 taps of Craft Beers, a carefully curated selection of American craft beers with an emphasis on Ohio breweries, and a friendly unassuming space that functions as a neighborhood meeting spot.

New to this location will be an on-site kitchen operated by Big Mamma’s Burritos from Athens. Big Mamma’s has been an Ohio University favorite in their 10+ years in Athens. The menu will initially offer the standard items from the original Athens location, but will be refined and expanded based on neighborhood feedback.

Big Mamma’s owner Quinn Schaller said “Beer and burritos are the bedrocks of American society. We are excited at the chance to reach a new audience by partnering with The Daily Growler. We’re confident this will be a mutually beneficial arrangement for us and for the neighborhood.”

In keeping the original character of the area, the two-story property will include a smaller second bar upstairs, space for private events and an large patio along S High St that wraps around the building to a second patio facing Pearl Street. In addition to ample free street parking, a private parking lot behind the building is accessible from Stimmel St and S Pearl St.

Property owner Philip Poll of South Compass Properties is excited to attract The Daily Growler concept to the area. He noted “I am a German Village resident, and there is nothing like The Daily Growler in the area. We had specific requirements for a tenant who would help us restore this section of South High St to its former glory, and we see The Daily Growler as a key contributor to this revitalization.”

Growler Czar John Blakely expressed his excitement saying “The German Village and Brewery District location presents a great opportunity to bring our growler bar concept to an urban, central city location. We’re looking forward to serving fast casual beer to a new part of Columbus.” And finally he mused, “It takes a Village to raise a Growler.”

About The Daily Growler

Opening its first store in Upper Arlington in 2012, The Daily Growler was the first growler bar in Ohio. It features 60 taps of fresh craft beers for on-site consumption and in Growlers (and Crowlers®) to go. The second location was opened in Powell in 2014 and serves the growing Powell and Southern Delaware county area.

Growlers are ubiquitous now, being sold everywhere from grocery store to gas stations, but it’s worth noting that in 2012 most people didn’t know what a growler was. The Daily Growler has been an innovator in this space by investing in Ohio’s only commercial growler sanitizer, used to exchange returned growlers for fresh ones, by offering growlers in two sizes, freely exchanged when refilled, by bringing the first Crowler® filling machine to the Columbus market, and through the introduction of their mobile beer truck with six taps available for private events and festivals.
