Starting a craft beer business

Hey there!! Sorry about  the lack of posts.  My intention was to start writing about the trials and tribulations of starting Growler & Gill Craft Beer Shoppe back in October when we first opened.  Unfortunately, since we've opened, the reception from the community has been so over-whelmingly positive that we haven't had time to catch our breath much less write about it.  All I can say at this point is that I hope I don't get too many opportunities to write.  That would mean that things are still going well. Some of the quick stats I can report are:

* We started with about 500 different bottled beers and now we have over 650
* We have gone through countless kegs on our 16 rotating taps
* We have added  menu of beer-centric food
* We have had over 25 breweries in for free beer tastings
* We are planning an outdoor beer garden behind our store
* We have embarked on our first beer festival called the Lower Hudson Valley Beer Festival

Like I said, I don't know how much time I'll have, but I will try to give regular updates




  1. Hi,

    I work for Overtime Group, New York’s largest happy hour company. I wanted to see if we can help you with your next meetup. We would be able to offer your members free drinks with our partner venues. There is no cost to you as this allows us to bring additional people to our venues.

    Please see our website for the bars/clubs we currently work with and the deals we have:
