Eagle Rock Brewery

Best Place to Fill Your Growler, August 2012

We’re pleased as pilsner that we can grab beer on the go from a bevy of local craft beer makers. Eagle Rock Breweryelevates the growler experience to an art. Shaped like a genie’s lamp or some medieval wine jug, each 64-ounce bottle is secured with a porcelain stopper that keeps the beer fresher longer. What’s inside goes stale quickly once it’s opened—typically within 24 hours—but you should have no problem polishing that off in time; Eagle Rock’s selection (choose from four drafts) is first-rate. If you’re lucky, you might also score limited-edition seasonal brews like Ginger Saison or Red Velvet. » 3056 Roswell St., Glassell Park.
