Could we start any list about craft beer without highlighting Findlay’s only brewery? Findlay Brewing Company is prepping for their big move to a new (and larger) space, but for now they are currently only open for growler fills. Purchase a growler on site, or bring one from home, and fill it up with Findlay Brewing Company’s delicious beer to enjoy at home.

Alexandria’s is a great place to lounge with friends and enjoy a unique craft beer. The bartenders are incredibly knowledgeable about what is on tap and can give recommendations based on your tastes. While Alexandria’s is located on the ground floor of 132 E. Crawford, you would be remiss to not venture upstairs to The Upper Deck Sports Bar or La Vista Rooftop Tiki Bar for the same great food and drinks as Alexandria’s, but a totally different atmosphere. La Vista is open seasonally and both bars have slightly varied hours! See what is on tap today! AlexandriasFindlay.com

Take some home!
We already mentioned growler fills at Findlay Brewing Company above, but you can also have your growler filled at the Great Scot on Broad Avenue. They have 3 – 5 craft beers on tap and you can purchase a growler to have it filled or bring your own, in addition to their bottle selection. The Wine Merchant also has an extensive supply of different craft beers that change seasonally for you to purchase and take home. Or, chat with Bill Wolf at Wolfie’s Nuts and find the right brew for you. Bill will special order your favorite in, or he will find something that is the perfect fit…or show you how to brew your own!
What goes well with a tall glass of beer? Pizza and Tacos! Check out our round ups for the best spot for those, as well as the other topics in our “On the Hunt” series. Looking for something to do?
