The Southern Pines Growler Company (SPGC) has the same name, but a brand new location in downtown. The new location is at the corner of Bennett Avenue and New York Avenue in the Growler Building, about a block away from the old location.
The 3,000 square foot facility has four times as much space for indoor and outdoor seating, with plenty of space for social distancing, and is a great place to meet for a cold beverage after spending some time walking along historic Broad Street window shopping. The craft beer selections are seemingly endless and highlight some of the best selections locally, statewide and around the country.
The SPGC originally opened in 2013 and is the longest-running growler company in the state of North Carolina. Owner/Proprietor Gerry Bateman has lived in Southern Pines for more than 30 years and he perhaps summed it up best when talking about a visit to the quaint town: “Great restaurants, great places to come hang out, a lot of great people,” said Bateman. “We are a very warm, friendly town and I think people that come here see that, they feel that. We have a nice spot for people to come see and they should enjoy it.”
