  4. At Ray’s Wine & Spirits, you can participate in a beer tradition making a big comeback: growlers! These glass bottles filled with freshly tapped beer were once the way every family brought fresh beer home from pubs and breweries. Ray’s Growler Gallery features the best, freshest and most creative local brews – these rare exclusive beers will not be available anywhere in a bottle! Ray’s is happy to fill your pre-owned growler, or come on Thursday or Sunday to try pints and beer flights.
