The Beer PHXation blog noticed the Arizona legislature temporarily suspended its typical crazy-ass pursuits last week to actually pass something worthwhile.
A growler, for the uninitiated, is a refillable glass beer bottle with a screw-on or hinged cap. Growlers come in various sizes, although the most common is a half-gallon (64 ounces).
Currently, only breweries are allowed to sell growlers, and only filled with beers they make.
The law goes into effect 90 days after the legislature adjourns – expected to happen in early to mid-May – so look for it to take effect in August.
