Good news for beer drinkers:
Grand Rounds Brewing Company Launches Growler Sales
Sales start on May 4
Grand Rounds Brewing Company will begin offering growlers of its locally brewed beers on Monday, May 4 at 11 am. Growlers are 64-ounce bottles of beer that can be purchased for home consumption.
Buyers have their choice of any of Grand Rounds’ hand crafted brews. Currently on tap are Freedom Scottish Ale, Hawaii 507 Coconut Stout, Hop Bollocks Session IPA, KA Minnesota Kolsch, Nelson IPA, and Out and About Stout. Growlers of Hawaii 507 Coconut Stout are $14 each. All other varieties sell for $12 per growler. Empty bottles are $6 each and must be purchased with the first brew. After that, buyers simply trade in their empty growler for a pre-filled one with no more empty growler purchases required.
To be among the first to get a Grand Rounds Growler, the first 88 buyers must have pre-purchased a growler, or have a Grand Rounds wooden coin. Everyone who enjoys a meal at Grand Rounds on or after April 30 will receive a wooden coin. Coins will also be available at Grand Rounds’ booth at the Rochester Craft Beer Expo at the Mayo Civic Center on May 2.
Wooden coins can also be redeemed for other specials from May 4-10. The growler sales launch and wooden coin specials are part of the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild’s 10,000 Minutes of Minnesota Craft Beer Week, seven days of craft-beer-focused events across the state (learn more at www.mncraftbrew.org/10000minutes).
Grand Rounds is Rochester’s only brewpub, offering handcrafted beers made on site and locally sourced pub food. The brewpub is located at 4 Third Street SW in downtown Rochester. Hours are Monday – Saturday from 11 am to 10 pm.
