Growler Filling Station
The only constant in the ever changing beer industry is that customers are always looking for new and exciting craft beers. Nick’s, with help from companies near and afar, has installed a state of the art Growler Filling Station based on the same operating principles as bottling lines. We use a blended gas counter pressure system. This state of the art technique forces beer to fill the growler from the bottom up reducing loss due to foam, while keeping the beer as fresh as possible.
While Nick’s carries a wide array of craft beer in bottles and cans, our Growler Filling Station has opened the doors to endless possibilities. Our Growler Filling Station taps are constantly changing with beers that are extremely rare or even limited to draft only. Our list is always changing, so check back with us regularly or you may miss out on that one beer you have been waiting for.
Goose Island – Bourbon County Brand Stout 2021
Our rich Imperial Stout is blended from a mix of bourbon barrels from distilleries such as Heaven Hill, Wild Turkey, and Buffalo Trace, each aged in freshly emptied bourbon barrels for 8-14 months. Expect flavors of chocolate and vanilla, oak, whiskey, and molasses, followed by caramel, berry fruit, and almond.
- ABV: 14.0%
Goose Island – Bourbon County Brand Cherry Wood Stout 2021
This year, we took wood complexities to another level by doing something we’ve never done before: we took fully-matured Bourbon County Stout and finished it with toasted fruitwood—specifically, honeycomb-shaped cherry wood chips. The versatility of the cherry wood and honeycomb shape allowed for maximum flavor extraction, revealing complex characteristics like red fruit, ripe cherry, and light toffee, which are not found in the original oak barrel itself. The result is an amazing elevation and a notable difference from our Original Bourbon County Stout.
- ABV: 14.2%
Mully’s – Nick’s Weekly Special
Hazy IPA with Citra, Amarillo, Idaho 7, & one individual Mosaic hop just because…
- ABV: 7.4%
- Calvert County, MD
Other Half – DDH Forever Idaho 7
The Forever single hop series is always highlighting different hops, this time Idaho 7 with its thick dank pineapple character.
- ABV: 8.5%
Battery Steele – Flume
A blend of traditional English malts combined with loads of wheat and oats give this double IPA a soft, clean malt profile. We hop this beer intensely with Citra and Mosaic, imparting huge notes of tropical fruit, citrus and pine.
- ABV: 8.0%
Pherm – Sparkle
German-style Pilsner with Pilsen base malt and a touch of wheat. Tettnanger and Hersbrucker hops.
- ABV: 5.6%
Species X – Hyperthermic Arms Race
Certain yeast strains of Norwegian origin, known as “kveik”, can ferment at extremely high temperatures with little to no off-flavors. Popular with craft brewers for good reason, we naturally decided to put a lot of these strains in the same beer. The result is a big-bodied juice chimera for the ages
- ABV: 8.0%
True Respite – Animatronic
A Kolsch is lager-like and an animatronic robot is animal-like. Thus, the birth of Animatronic Kolsch. This one is very delicately dry hopped w/ Huell Melon hops for a subtle melon and grass kick over top of the crisp, crackery base.
- ABV: 5.0%
