On Thursday, the Cash Saver grocery store in Midtown Memphis unveiled the first of two major changes to its already impressive beer operation.

Cash Saver, which is undergoing a massive, $1.5 million renovation, debuted a 96-foot cold beer box, billed at the largest in Memphis. The store celebrated its arrival with a beer sampling event with Ghost River Brewing, Abita Beer, Schlafly Beer and Oskar Blues.

The next major piece is coming Nov. 19, and it’s something Memphis area craft beer lovers should get all hopped up about.

Cash Saver is opening a 24-tap growler fill station, likely to be the first of its kind in Memphis. A growler fill shop, The Growler Memphis, is opening soon at 921 S. Cooper in Cooper-Young, but it has not yet announced a date.

Taylor James, Cash Saver’s craft beer manager, said the growler station will be open Monday-Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The store will sell growlers, but customers will be able to bring their own to fill.

Here’s video of James talking about all the changes:

If you’re not familiar with the Cash Saver, the former Piggly Wiggly at 1620 Madison Avenue has transformed itself into a destination for craft beer, with a huge selection and great prices. It features a large “make-your-own-six-pack” section and a bomber rack.

Tennessee law limits grocery stores to selling lower-gravity beers, so the store can only sell beers lower than 6.25% alcohol by volume.

Here’s the site of the soon-to-be growler fill station at the Cash Saver, in a spot that currently sells baked goods:

  1. These folks have it down. Ive known Taylor on a work lever for a few years and he has always had his fingers on the pulse of craft beer in Memphis. This is great news to an already awesome craft beer destination. Really looking forward to it.
