The Growler Cafe


We spent the weekend with my sister and brother in law in Lebanon (Oregon).  They took us to a fabulous eatery and pub – The Growler Cafe

We sampled a few beers before we made our decisions.  I had the Oakshire (from Eugene, Oregon) Watershed IPA- a citrusy hoppy beer.  My sister and my husband opted for the Oskar Blues Ted Fidy (a Colorado brewery) – a chocolaty stout with coffee overtones.  Both beers were delicious!



The food menu, although small, offered some delicious options –


We all shared the hummus plate.  My sister ordered the pesto grilled cheese, served on homemade bread with hummus, cheese and tomato -with some really good onion potato chips.  My husband ordered the Nortorious P.I.G. –  A huge sandwich of slow cooked pork, ham and bacon….   20141213_125645

The dining area is paneled with old, salvaged barn wood and the floor is paved with pennies – lots of pennies.


And the service was fabulous!  The food came quickly – the waiter made sure we always had everything we needed – and he was friendly and personable.  We left with two growlers – what’s a growler?  It’s a refillable jug of beer you get to take home and enjoy!  You can bring your own growler, or buy one of theirs – growler-containers

If you’re ever out by Lebanon, I highly recommend you stop in!  You won’t be disappointed!
