It’s been six years since Jason Kanner opened the doors to Ace Beer Growlers on the court square.
Originally a destination for craft beer and wine, Kanner has slowly introduced a variety of items over the years based on a simple principle.
“If I have to leave my house to purchase something, I should just sell it at my store,” Kanner said. “I can’t be the only person who’s looking for that item.”
Last year, Kanner became a platinum Traeger dealer. Traeger pellet grills use 100 percent all-natural hardwood fuel to infuse food with flavorful smoke, making food taste delicious and most of all, memorable.
The pellet grill can be used to bake, braise, roast, and barbecue different types of foods. As a platinum dealer, Kanner offers a full assortment of Traeger grills, including the Timberline – Traeger top of the line model. He also offers accessories and services for the grills.
“Once we started selling grills, we saw the need for folks to cook unique things on them”. Kanner saw the value in becoming a butcher, and now offers standing rib roasts, 10 oz. fillets, prime ribeye, briskets, butts, pork belly, and sausages.
He recently began importing U-10 dry scallops from Massachusetts and Japanese A5 wagyu beef.
“Anything we’ve ever had trouble finding, that’s what we decide to sell,” Kanner said. “We can’t be the only ones. It’s really just the evolution of a small business.”
Along with the beer, wine, meat, and grill selections, Kanner also offers Rockwood lump charcoal, Smithy Ironware, a wide assortment of pellets for the Traeger grills, spices, rubs, cigars, and even gun safes.
Fire Mountain Coffee, roasted in Newnan, is also readily available.
With the Christmas season in full swing, Kanner hopes you’ll come by and peruse their wide selection of items which would make you the hit of any holiday gathering.
The feeling of Ace Growlers harkens back to the general store days of yore but with a dash of man-cave sensibility. Walking into the store, you’re heartily greeted and usually asked what your pleasure is.
For Kanner, it’s just a natural continuation of what he would want in a store.
“We pride ourselves on having nothing you need and everything you want,” he said. “If we don’t have it, we can get it.”
