Anderson’s Growler Haus is continuing on the path toward opening a second location in downtown Spartanburg, although they’ve deviated somewhat from their original plan.
In March, I wrote about how the Anderson-based growler store had entered itself in Spartanburg’s Main Street Challenge for a chance to win a prime spot in downtown Spartanburg as well as some money to cover rent for the first year. But according to a story from the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, Growler Haus owner Craig Kinley decided to withdraw from the competition and instead seize on a vacant property on his own.
Kinley signed a lease on a former cigar shop at 113 N. Church St. in Spartanburg and hopes to have the second Growler Haus location open by the summer.
The store is still continuing with its crowdsourced fundraising campaign, but that’s not going so well for them. With a little more than two weeks left, the campaign has taken in just $720 of the $12,000 goal. However, that doesn’t seem to be slowing them down.
When it opens, the store will offer the same amenities as its main location: the opportunity to buy a pint to enjoy there or grab a growler to take home. A light food menu will also be offered, as well as beer dinners, private tastings and so on in the future.
