Growlers Oyster Roast

Sunday was not only a beautiful day in Charlotte with temperatures in the high 70s but it was also Growlers Oyster Roast.  Growlers Pourhouse is an amazing bar/restaurant in Charlotte’s NoDa neighborhood.  They feature craft beer, delicious beer food, and cask ales from a vintage beer engine.  Growlers rotates their tap list often and always has unique craft beers on tap to try.  Right now they have a delicious pumpkin ale served with a cinnamon sugar rim…autumn in a glass. Go get one…now.  Their food menu pairs perfectly with beer selection.  Highlights: house made sausages, french onion dip with house made chips, and oysters on the half shell.  Beer food.

Enough raving, back to the Oyster Roast…

The beautiful day featured live music and a large crowd

Buckets of oysters

Shucking stations complete with cocktail sauce, hot sauce, saltines, and of course beer. The warm weather had me in the mood for a wheat beer instead of the usual IPA.

House made Italian sausage with peppers and onions

I’m always happy to support local businesses, especially when they are trying to do good too!

The Oyster Roast benefited the Charlotte Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation chapter in memory of a Growlers family member Drew Hawkins.  There was a beautiful painting and dedication during a break in the music.  Tickets were only 10 bucks beforehand and 15 bucks on Sunday; including a beer and food ticket.  Extra tickets were only $3.  A steal in my opinion for the quality of beer and food.

Growlers is one of my favorite spots in Charlotte so I suggest you head over to check out the awesome craft beer selection, excellent beer food, and happening events.  The first Tuesday of each month they have free beer education/tastings featuring unique and seasonal brews and their next big event is a Halloween bash on October 29.
