Microbrew beer: Retailers can sell growlers
August 26, 2011 · 3:56 PM
From staff reports:
Thanks to the legislative action of House Bill 1465, specialty beer and/or wine stores in Washington can expand their offerings to include growlers of craft beer from draft.
Growlers are containers that are filled at the business location from beer kegs, capped and sealed for at-home serving. Growlers allow retail stores to represent breweries that don’t have bottling capabilities.
On Aug. 23, specialty beer store 99 Bottles in Federal Way began offering eight different beers for growlers. The store is located at South 348th Street and Pacific Highway South behind Jimmy Mac’s Roadhouse. The beers available for growler fills will change after each keg is emptied; freshly tapped kegs will be tweeted from the username @99bottlesontap. Learn more online at http://99bottles.net.
