Local Goes Sudsy

by ryan • December 6

The latest Duane Reade opening in Williamsburg, Brooklyn over delivers on the “Your city.  Your Drugstore.” tagline.  Taking the hyper-local approach to the next level, the new Duane Reade boasts a huge adult beverage chiller room.  If this wasn’t enough for thirsty locals, there is a growler bar by Brew York City.  For those not familiar, growlers are 64 oz. refillable beer bottles that are the currency of cool for suds lovers.  While growlers have been filling mugs for a few years in NYC at hipster hangouts and Whole Foods on Canal St., we’re pretty impressed that parent company Walgreens isn’t wimping out on executing hyper-local, even when it includes 4.5% ABV.
