The Athens original opened in late 2010 and pioneered growler availability in Georgia. The Avondale Estates location follows the same simple format: Pay a one-time fee for the refillable jug (you can swap out the size) and a friendly employee fills it with one of forty beers on tap. The store sells no bottled beer. Six new locations, including Brookhaven and Johns Creek, are slated to open by year’s end.
