Growler Garage Owner On Motorcycles On 30A and the Popularity of Craft Beer To Go

A very cool new spot to grab a beer for the beach — and eye some hot Harleys and custom-built beach cruisers and guitars and surfboards and tons of other interesting stuff — is the Growler Garage, right across from Ed Walline Regional Beach Access near Gulf Place.

30A Radio recently sat down with owner Mitch Omar to talk about why he and his wife moved to the area from Memphis, the store’s craft-beer-to-go concept, the exclusive limited edition kegs he’s getting on tap, and why the 19-mile stretch of County Highway 30A is the perfect spot for a motorcycle ride.

Music by the Allman Brothers. Note: On your next visit to Growler Garage, try to spot the custom-made guitar signed by Greg Allman.
