What the heck is a growler? In the late 1800s, fresh beer was carried from the local pub to home by a small, galvanized pail. The term "growler" is rumored to come about when the beer sloshed around the pail and it created a rumbling sound as the CO2 escaped through the lid!
Now you know.
One afternoon while Sarah Auman was reading on the porch of her Blue Ridge home she had an idea for downtown Blue Ridge. She became dedicated to becoming the "modern day" gourmet shop owner. With a passion for the finest wines and craft beers, gourmet foods, exquisite table linens and all aspects of entertaining, it is Sarah’s goal for each customer experience to be intimate and exciting. Sarah invites you to come in, make yourself at home and know that she understands the art of gourmet living in the Ocoee River area.
