welcome to the growler ruggie and carole

about us

Ruggie and Carole Van Muijen are residents of Danville, and Ruggie grew up in the Bay Area. He has been in the restaurant industry for 44 years, 35 of those with his own business in the local area, and Carole has taught cooking at Monte Vista High School for the past decade .

The Growler has evolved over the years from starting out as a craft beer focused bar, to becoming a neighborhood restaurant & pub with a cozy, familiar feel. Located just off the Iron Horse Trail, we are a favorite with cyclists, walkers, families and dog owners looking for a place to sit down and enjoy a cold beer, cocktail, and some delicious food from our diverse menu.

Our food & Drink

CRAFT INSPIRED

Our menu is chef designed, and hosts a good mix of traditional, house-made pub fare, and healthier options.

As well as our passion for great food, we pride ourselves in having a unique and dynamic craft beer selection. Settle in for an evening with your favorite IPA, or if beer isn't your thing, grab a cocktail or glass of wine to enjoy with your friends!
