Growlers, Inc., to sell brewing systems

Growlers, Inc., owners and operators of Growlers Grill & Brewery brewpubs in Dayton and Columbus, OH, is marketing turnkey brewing systems to restauranteurs throughout the United States.

The proprietary Growlers brewing system was designed specifically to enable restauranteurs to produce consistently top-quality beers both easily and cost effectively. According to Michael Allen, vice president, process engineering and brewmaster, "With the Growlers system and technical support, a planned or existing restaurant can be quickly transformed into a brewpub with less expense and owner involvement than normally expected."

Unlike other suppliers, Allen pointed out that Growlers not only designs the systems but uses them with great success in its two brewery pubs. "When we talk about making beer, we talk from practical experience. We've not only engineered the system for the restauranteur but we've also developed the recipes, menus and promotional programs to assure broad acceptance of the concept and products," he said.

Incorporated in 1988, Growlers, Inc., is the first organization within the brewpub industry that has as its stated mission the development of multiple store units through either corporate-owned and/or franchised operations. The company has engineered its own brewing system and intends to apply for a U.S. patent on its unique proprietary processes. The corporate identity program is protected with a U.S. trademark registration.

The basic Growlers brewing system will produce about two eight-barrel brews per week, or approximately 500 gallons of beer. Because of its modular design, however, capacity can be increased simply by installing additional tankage.

From planning the brew house to obtaining the necessary permits through tapping the first keg, Growlers' technical staff is of assistance. Its training program, the longest and most comprehensive in the industry, provides a minimum of 30 days hands-on working and learning experience in a commercially operating Growlers brewery.
