Growlers of Gaithersburg reopens with music and fresh brews
Gaithersburg beer fans, you are in luck. Growlers of Gaithersburg, the brewpub and live music venue in the city's Old Town area has reopened after being severely damaged in last August's violent storms. (The wind tore off a portion of the building's antique copper roof and tossed it into the street below.)
Stop by tonight and try one of five house-made beers on draft or get a taste of the restaurant's new house-made root beer -- a pleasant addition to the tap lineup. Beers are $3 from 8 p.m. to close tonight. Root beer floats are $5.50.
Growlers is plunging right back in to its usual calendar of live music, starting tonight with Headliners, which combines an open mike format with a battle of the bands. There's no cover charge, and the music starts at 9.
You may want to arrive early, though. Tuesday night's soft opening was "very busy, with lots of regulars," manager Catie Early says. "The whole town's been waiting for six months."
