This NoDa chill spot serves more than just beer, sausage and bar-side popcorn. Though it's not listed on the chalkboard, there is one fall-inspired sip that isn't the seasonal pumpkin beer. "Growlers Pour House is known for our extensive beer list, which is my inspiration for a lot of the cocktails I make," says bartender Nicole Ippolito. "I often will make guests drinks with their favorite beer. The idea behind the Dirty Ol' Punk'n was to bring out the fall spice of Uinta Punk'n beer with the use of the Goldschlager." Between the whiskey, beer and spices, you can practically hear the crunch of leaves while warming up with this fall-in-a-glass cocktail.
