IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the US craft beer scene shows no signs of slowing down, neither does craft beer drinkers' desire to take home their beloved crafts in freshly-filled, portable "growlers."
Albertsons® has recognized this growing trend and has added The Growler Station Express™ to its’ Desert Ridge, Phoenix, AZ location to satisfy area craft beer fans.
The Phoenix area's craft beer culture is continuing to grow, with several native breweries in the surrounding area, and a great variety of regional and national crafts available both on and off-premise throughout the region.
The addition of Albertsons® convenient growler filling location will allow consumers the ability to shop for groceries and fill up on their favorite, fresh craft beer in one easy trip – addressing a demand that's been on the rise from coast to coast.
It was, in fact, the success of the first two GS Express Albertsons locations in Boise, ID that helped lead the way to this western expansion.
“We are thrilled to be able to continue to expand into more Albertsons locations,” said Tony Lane, Exec. VP and Co-Founder of The Growler Station™, Inc. “America’s love for craft beer is growing, and we plan to grow with it with the help of large retail chains like Albertsons.”
Alberstons has always prided itself on offering the freshest products in its stores, and the addition of The Growler Station Express’ growler-fillers extends this promise to its craft beer-loving customers. The Growler Station Express uses a unique, patented Pegas counter pressure growler-filling technology that's designed to keep Craft Beer fresh for 30-45 days, unlike the 1 or 2 days when growlers are filled through the traditional poured-from-a-tap method.
That means Albertsons customers will be able to enjoy the growler-fresh beer experience, without ever feeling rushed to drink their growlers.
Beer-lovers can see for themselves by visiting the newest GS Express location at Albertsons Desert Ridge at 21001 N. Tatum Blvd, Suite 76, Phoenix, AZ.
