Toast the First Day of Spring at Growlers With Crabbie’s Ginger Beer

Crabbie's is in the BBQ sauce
Apparently, the No. 1 selling bottled beer in the UK isn’t an ale at all. Nope, it’s Crabbie’s ginger beer. Unlike the artisanal “ginger beer” sodas you may have run into on boutique grocery shelves, this one packs an alcoholic punch. Clocking in at 4.8% ABV, Crabbie’s is relatively new to US shores, and it has arrived just in time for spring. Your best chance to taste the new bubbly is this Wednesday, March 20, at a special Growlers happy hour.

Starting at 5 PM, Growlers is serving Crabbie’s over ice for $3, or in a variety of cocktails (think Moscow Mule) for $5 each. The chef at the Bella Vista bar has come up with a series of dishes designed to complement the slightly spicy drink. Look for Crabbie’s jerk chicken satay and pulled pork sliders with Crabbie’s BBQ sauce, along with other plates. Spring arrives whether the weather agrees or not, so head out on Wednesday to celebrate.
