Just in time for the holidays, Griffin Claw Brewing Company, Birmingham’s popular taproom, biergarten, brewing, distilling and distributing facility, has finished construction on its new retail area featuring a reach-in beer cooler, clothing, accessories and unique gift ideas for that beer lover on your list!
Earlier this year, the 12,000-square-foot brewery began construction to create an additional exit and entrance from the parking lot, build a new barrel aging room, expand the current retail space and biergarten, and build a canopy over the loading area in the back.
Construction is now complete and the new retail shop is officially open for business and stocked with fun Griffin Claw Brewing Company swag including official logo hats, t-shirts, hoodies, long sleeve thermal shirts and collectable beer glasses. Stainless Steel beer growlers are also available and make great stocking stuffers. The growlers retail for $25 (40oz) and $32 (64oz). Gift cards, the gift that keeps on giving, can also be purchased in any denomination.

The new 1,800 square foot retail area also features a beer cooler showcasing popular Griffin Claw brews available for sale along with new beers just released including the 2015 Flying Buffalo Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, retailing for $20 and the brewery’s new "Moolah" Milk Stout, available for $8. The next 3 in the Aegirs Daughters series - Foam Fleck (Imperial Honey Wheat), Billowing Wave (Imperial Oatmeal Stout) and The Pitching One (Imperial Hefeweizen) are also all now available for $12 each in 22oz wax-dipped bombers. House made Griffin Claw spirits will also be featured in the new retail area and are available for sale including Griffin Claw Grain Vodka, Griffin Claw Potato Vodka, Griffin Claw Botanical Gin and Griffin Claw Black Strap Rum for $20 each.

Griffin Claw Brewing Company’s Taproom is open Tuesday through Thursday from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m., Fridays from noon to 12 a.m., Saturdays from noon to 12 a.m., Sundays noon to 10 p.m. and closed on Mondays.

With a mission to serve the best craft beer, Griffin Claw Brewing Company is located at 575 S. Eton Street, in the heart of Birmingham’s emerging Rail District. Dan Rogers, Head Brewer and Director of Brewery Operations, oversees all the brewing, distilling, distributing, and operations at the 12,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility. Griffin Claw is one of the first breweries to begin using Meura’s Micromash filter to deliver incredible quality with efficiencies unmatched by other brewing systems. The brewery also recently added a centrifuge and high-gravity brewing system to make even more consistent beer faster to reach their desired capacity.
