Craft Beer Franchise

Inspired by America's fastest-growing industry, craft beer, Growler USA introduces a new franchise concept: The Microbrew Pub. 19 years of double-digit growth give craft beer 22% of the $105.9 Billion US beer market. Analysts estimate the industry's 5-year CAGR at 19%, and believe growth can continue for another 20 years.

In a March, 2016, article titled Franchise the Unexpected: 4 Franchisors Thinking Ahead, Growler USA was named by Entrepreneur as one of the four "most interesting newcomers" in franchising. The concept was awarded the 2015 Breaking the Mold award by The Entrepreneur's Source for being, "a brand that re-defined the standard for its industry."

Fits Your Business

Growler USA is experiencing rapid growth, but because the concept is new, prime DMA's and locations avail in all 50 states. Growler USA's "microbrew pub" concept allows operators to:

  • Growler USA beerLeave the brewing to the brewers. Serve the best local, regional and national craft beers along with other trending hand-crafted beverages including hard ciders, draught wine, non-alcoholic sodas and kombucha teas, and more. The model includes the most sophisticated beverage handling delivery system in the world, and absolutely no brewing.
  • Generate retention and referrals with a personalized guest experience. Growler USA sponsors Cicerone® program certifications. Cicerone is the industry's leading certification program. All Growler USA beertenders are Cicerone Certified Beer Servers, trained and able to help new craft drinkers find their favorite beverages and flavor profiles.
  • Provide an upscale experience. Growler USA microbrew pubs are comfortable, fashionable and designed to foster conversation. Recipes are delicious, with five-star presentation. Growler USA's True to the Brew™ beverage handling and delivery system is a stark differentiator for suppliers and consumers.
  • Leverage the daypart. Guests come for the beer. Growler USA's Chef-designed menu brings them back for lunch. Training is provided, and the technology-driven kitchen is remarkable easy to manage.
  • Limit liability. Growler USA pubs typically close by midnight on weekends and earlier during the week. A Beer & Wine license, rather than a full liquor license, is all you'll need. There are places in the world for cheap beer and tequila shots. And that's fine. They're just somewhere else.
