Lakewood Growler, a New Growler-Filling Station, Is Coming to East Dallas

The growler is an efficient and environmentally friendly way for craft beer drinkers to indulge their potable of choice. You pick up a 32 or 64 ounce glass jug, down your favorite beer, then get it refilled. The kicker is you can't just stick one under a tap. Your beer purveyor of choice has to be equipped with the right hardware.

Despite close proximity to a major university, the residents of East Dallas have long had to venture out to other corners of the city to get their growler fix. There's Craft & Growler in Fair Park and others scattered across the city. Now Lakewood Growler aims to fill that void.

Stacie and Dale Czech are in the process of renovating what used to be the liquor store Kindred Spirits, on the southeast corner of Mockingbird and Abrams, turning it into a growler fill station that will also operate like a wine bar. Just, you know, for beer. Think a smallish space better suited for tastings rather than a somewhere to bring your personalized beer funnel.

The Czechs are planning to open by late December if all the renovations go as planned (Stacie is constructing a lot of the decor herself, including the tables and bar top), just in time to answer all your New Year's growler needs.

The Lakewood Whole Foods has been filling up growlers for years in East Dallas unless something has changed.

So how about some more growler store love for Plano, Frisco, Addison....you know everyone else outside of the South of 635 Bubble.

So will my "growler" work at all Growler's, or is it specific to a single Growler location ?

The reason these will be a problem in Dallas is that you will have non-end users tasting everything and not buying.  I'm talking homeless and ethnics.

I hope they will be open in time to buy some Christmas gifts.

@colinnwn  You are correct that Whole Foods has been filling growlers for quite sometime and they continue to do so.

@ooozooo  Unfortunately, Plano & Frisco are in Collin County and growlers are a no go there. Contact them and let your voice be heard!!! With that being said, you can fill growlers in Addison at Whole Foods.

@CitizenKane  Here in the DFW area, you can fill anyone's growler at any location, for example, you can take a Haus Of Growlers growler to LUCK and they will fill it, you can take a LUCK growler to Whole Foods in Lakewood and they will fill it. Some locations, like the Whole Foods and LUCK require you to have the "Government Warning" on the back and some don't. Your best bet is to call ahead and check with the location you are planning on going to.

@CitizenKane I know that Craft & Growler's policy is that they will fill pretty much any vessel that can be closed up.  I once saw a guy filling an old Tabasco bottle - the one gallon size that food service suppliers sell.  I've taken in growlers from other sources to C&G and they were happy to fill them.  I just hope this place does the same.

@Steve damn the homeless and ethnics. they've ruined many a wine tasting. hope the Czechs heed your logic before they follow through with this venture.
