Varga Bar Wants You to Have Five for the Road

The soon-to-be-open Varga at 10th and Spruce, from R. Evan Turney of Valanni and Mercato (read more about the opening on Foobooz), is adding growlers to their international concept. The vessels — glass with a porcelain top and carrying the Varga logo — will sell for around $25 each, plus $20 each time you get one filled. But since these half-gallon babies hold about five beers and the bar plans to offer 22 taps, it seems like a worthy investment — you’ll just have to drink fast so the brew doesn’t go warm and flat. (Lederhosen optional.)

    The staff is equally as pretentious as the management and as the menu attempts to be. “American comfort food”? Nice try. It’s pretty uncomfortable. Good thing there’s good beer.

    Sounds like RyLeigh must be from one of those “gee, I thought my place would be sooooooo hip” blinks down in Olde City with the for rent sign. He is right about the beer though.
