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 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 Station has opened the doors to endless possibilities. Our Growler 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.
Greenspring Pound Foolish IPA
-This one started out with a pound of Yakima Valley hops we had laying around, and ended up as a light-bodied IPA that artfully develops hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. First, Chinook hops gives this IPA its teeth by providing a classic bitterness. We also steep and dry-hop the beer in Simcoe and Amarillo hops to add layers of piney and citrus tangs and flavors. We squeezed everything out of that pound of hops and got an ale with complexity and drinkability.

-Calvert County, Md
-There’s a whale that’s swum off the coast of Maine since 1982. One day, something took a bite out of her fin, which is how she got the name Lunch. You have to admire her persistence, so we named our IPA for her. Intense hop flavors and tropical, citrus fruit and pine aromas dominate the flavor profile, balanced by subtle malt sweetness. Because only big, memorable flavor would serve for Lunch.
Union Double Duckpin
-When we first brewed Duckpin, our little session-style pale ale, it really hit the spot for a go-to, anytime refresher. But we soon felt like we were just practicing. Knocking down all those little Duckpins just made us thirsty for something bigger! So we went back to the brewhouse and doubled down on malts and hops. The result is a double IPA that’s danker than a rental shoe and rolling with ten frames of juicy, resinous hops down a solid lane of malted barley and wheat. When it’s time to bring you’re A-game, reach for a Double.
Union Tiny Elvis
-Tiny Elvis maybe small but he’s a real showman. This dark Vienna-style crooner shows off a toasty malt body wrapped in a dazzling sequined cape of citrusy Lemondrop hops that bring a real balance to the delicate malts. Tiny E leaves the building with a crisp, dry finish. Down a pint of this brew and you’ll be thanking us…very much.
Flying Dog Single Hop Calypso
-Calypso is a Yakima Valley bred, dual-purpose hop that boasts a high alpha acid percentage. It features crisp, fruity aromas and flavors that exhibit elements of apple, pear, and stone fruit brightened with hints of lime citrus.
Perennial Cave Torch IPA
- Cave Torch is a 6.7% IPA brewed with Vienna Malt and Flaked Wheat, and then is fruited with Mandarin Oranges. Cave Torch is dry-hopped with a blend of Amarillo, Citra and Wakatu.
Captain Lawrence Grapefruit Endless IPA
-The only thing “effortless” about this beer is how it drinks. Domestic and imported malts take a backseat to the loads of American grown hops that are dumped into the kettle. Dry-hopped for mouthwatering aroma with Mosaic and Palisade hops, and infused with natural grapefruit flavor to add to the refreshment.
