New Brew In Town

There is an old Mill in town that's over 100 years old known as the Loray Mill. They have transformed the building into apartments while keeping the bottom floor open for retail and restaurant space.

They have recently opened a brewery in the basement area called Growlers. It was a neat looking place. With the the original structure and memorabilia, It has that artsy/vintage feel. They have over 100 different beers on tap. At night they have live music and entertainment. I'm sure its a fun place for the younger folks to hang out.

While we normally just make a sandwich on Saturday afternoons, we opt to go to the brewery for lunch. Me and my husband do not drink beer, but we heard they had a great lunch special so we thought we’d give it a try. Note: Lunch special does not include Saturdays

Nothing was happening and there were only a couple other people in there eating and drinking. The first thing the waitress ask is “what kind of beer are you going to have?” We both replied “just water”. Then we placed our order.  



Nick ordered a ten dollar BLT and I had the nine dollar beer brat slider appetizer as my meal. I don't know about you, but this is a little pricey. It was good but that’s just an outrageous price for a sandwich you can make at home then add some frozen tater tots.

I’ve always said “If the food is served on a square plate, its probably too expensove for me”. 

Next week, we plan to try a new Mexican restaurant opening up down town. Can’t go wrong there!

  1. I agree, I'm finding that most restaurants have gone up in price and give you less!

  2. These Texans have forgotten what good Mexican is, after living in FL for 31 years, sigh.

  3. That is a bit pricey for me even, just think what adding a beer would have done for the price, I am sure they weren't cheap either.

    I love trying new places like this, I know they are there to make a profit but I hate to see one overpriced like this.

  5. I'm guessing you wouldn't care for our favorite local restaurant where the burgers are $19!! Granted they are the best I've ever tasted, and huge so it's two meals for me, but still that's pricey!

  9. I changed servers(?) and can comment. Yep, a $10 sandwich is too pricey for me, but not for folks who actually go there to drink the local beer. I cannot imagine 100 beers. I used to drink and even liked beer, but I cannot see the penchant for the local beers now, I think it is just the cool thing to do, NOW. The Loray is very well known among textile families, that is for sure....
