Carlisle, PA – GIANT Food Stores today opened its newest Beer Garden and Eatery in its store located at 4357 West Swamp Road, Doylestown. The Beer Garden and Eatery seats 32 and is open Monday – Saturday, 7a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

“Our newest Beer Garden and Eatery gives our Doylestown area customers the opportunity to purchase beer while grocery shopping,” said Erik Keptner, senior vice president of sales, merchandising and marketing, GIANT. "The addition of the Beer Garden and Eatery gives our customers convenience while also allowing them to save time."

Doylestown customers will find a vast selection of domestic and imported beers with an emphasis on craft and specialty beers in the Beer Garden and Eatery.

Customers will have a “mix-a-six” option where they can create their own six packs from a variety of craft beers. Customers can also save time and eat well by choosing from eat-in and take-out selections offered, including a hot buffet, salad bar, sandwiches, wraps and subs, sushi, piping hot soups, Chinese food, baked foods and desserts, and a wide selection of other beverages.
