After a soft opening back in October, The Growler & Gill Craft Beer Shoppe hosted its official grand opening celebration on Saturday with a ribbon cutting.
Located on Route 59 between Toys 'r' Us and Kohl's, Growler & Gill is bringing something new to Rockland County and the Hudson Valley. It has several owners—Mike and Joe Fitzgerald, Brian Condon and Walt Mihatov, joined by their hard-working wives.
"It's like a Starbucks for beer. It's a place where people feel they’re getting top of the line product and a comfortable place to sit and enjoy that product and each other’s company," said Mike Fitzgerald. “Our mission is educating and teaching people. There are so many beers around the world but it’s hard to take it all in. Our Beer Geeks and Beer Specialists have the knowledge to really help people understand the beer selection.”
