Bottle it Up

Central Market-Fort Worth has opened the taps for local beer loyalists to fill growlers from a selection of 19 microbrews.

Growlers, often made from glass, stoneware or galvanized steel, are reusable containers made for takeout draft beer. Central Market is the first retail store in Tarrant County to sell beer in this format.
“After two huge successes recently with local craft brewers, Revolver Brewing and Martin House Brewing Company, we have decided to add a permanent feature to our Beer and Wine department that allows customers to purchase these unique beers from the tap,” said Austin Jourde, general manager of Central Market-Fort Worth.
The former wine room now features a 14-foot bar and desk area beautifully constructed of reclaimed oak. The back wall was finished out in stainless steel and contains the 19 beer taps. Customers may bring in their own growlers or purchase one of two sizes (32-ounce and 64-ounce) at Central Market. Popular breweries featured this season are Revolver Brewing, Martin House Brewing Company, Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales, Avery Brewing Company and Brooklyn Brewery
