Just recently, the Cleveland area Whole Foods have installed Growler Stations. The market in University Heights and Beachwood now offer growler fills and re-fills. After speaking with Joe, pictured above, as he filled my growler with Great Divide Belgica IPA, he told me that they will have four beers on tap at a time. Some of the beers will be local and most will be regional but they will also offer some from all over the country. You do not need to purchase the Whole Foods growler, if you have another of the same size (64 oz.) they will gladly fill it. The Beachwood location also has 32 oz. fills.
Not only does the University Heights location have the growler station, but their beverage department is pretty outstanding. Creighton and Magie are very knowledgable and will help to pair up your tastes with the right beverage.
We are looking forward to seeing what shows up in the “on tap” lineup and we will be sure to share that information with you.
