“Greene Growlers- 4 mins walking distance ! Greene Growlers opened in September 2017 and is located in the heart of Olde Towne Gaithersburg. The building, built in 1879, has the perfect mix of old, historical character & modernized renovations. The building itself has been home to three generations of brew pubs, several different restaurants, and even dating back to it's origins rumored as the first micro brewery in Montgomery County. The atmosphere is similar to that of a "Cheers" bar, with an inviting & welcoming feel where you will know the names of many patrons & recognize even more faces. Mon–Thurs 11am–1am Fri–Sat 11am–2am Sun 11am–12am”
