When Growler USA opens in Wynwood, it will bring 100 brews on tap to the beer-centric neighborhood.

The brewpub is set to debut this Saturday, December 22. It will offer seating for 120 inside and 45 on the patio, plus a custom mural by local graffiti artist Gwiz-One.

The Colorado-based franchise of microbrew pubs was established in 2014. The Wynwood location is owned by Carlos De Leon, who helped launch several mezcals, including Mezcal Delirio.

De Leon says of his decision to open a Growler USA in Wynwood: "The artful culture that Wynwood possesses, that can literally be seen from floor to ceiling of every establishment, is what most appealed to us... We are excited to celebrate this artistic culture by partnering with and featuring local artists throughout the year."

Growler USA makes a point of working with small microbreweries that started in garages and kitchens. Many of its rotating selection of 100 beers on tap are from local beer makers. South Florida breweries represented include Biscayne Bay Brewing, Wynwood Brewing, Barrel of Monks, the Tank, J. Wakefield, Inlet Brewing, Funky Buddha, Veza Sur, Holy Mackerel, Florida Keys Brewing, Due South Brewing, Concrete Beach, and Bangin' Banjo.

In addition to selling beer, Growler USA will also offer a menu of pub grub including beer-battered chicken tenders, a "brewban" (a take on the Reuben sandwich), and the bromance burger, topped with carnitas, barbecue sauce, bacon, and crisp onion. Prices are not yet available.
