CRAFT BEER MOVEMENT: Growler USA microbrew pub is expected to open in The Walk at Tulsa Hills by the end of the year. The microbrewery will offer craft beers, including many from Oklahoma, draught wine, handmade root beer, cold-pressed coffee and kombucha tea as well as a full food menu.

The Walk at Tulsa Hills, located at 81st Street and Highway 75, has reached near capacity, with one of its final tenants, Growler microbrew pub, hoping for an end-of-year opening.

Tulsa residents Dan and Amber Richards, Growler franchise owners, got involved with Growler due to the company’s focus on local and the craft beer industry, which is growing so much, says Dan Richards.

“We met with the company owners, and we liked their vision,” including their way of offering craft beers and wines on tap or from kegs, as opposed to in cans or bottles, Richard says.

The microbrew pub’s craft beverages will include microbrews, hard cider, draught wine, handmade wine, handmade root beer, cold-pressed coffee and kombucha tea, with no macro brews or imports.

“We will focus our taps on Oklahoma breweries first, and as we fill the taps, we will broaden the selection to regional beers and then national,” Richards says.

Regarding the menu, company owners employ a number of executive chefs on staff, he continues. “Because the craft beer industry is moving so rapidly and offerings change almost daily, as the chefs receive new beers, they sample them and determine which foods pair best with them.”

Some already-determined menu items include Mahi Mahi tacos, buffalo chicken wraps and sliders.

The Richards chose to open Growler in The Walk due to the area’s retail density and high level of traffic, as well as the lack of pub-style establishments.

“There’s a lot of craft beer options around downtown and in midtown, but there is not much available in this area of the city,” he says.

The national franchise company Growler was created in 2014 and is headquartered in Colorado with the focus on promoting local and pouring 100 percent American-made, premium craft beverages.

Growler occupies the southern end of the shopping center located in The Walk at Tulsa Hills. Other tenants in the shopping center include Blaze Pizza, Massage Envy, Great Clips, Sushi Fork and Qdoba, which is also opening soon.
