Growler Fills at Specialty Beer & Wine Stores

As a consumer, I support a change to the ABC regulations to allow specialty beer and wine stores to sell beer in "growler" format.  This change would allow consumers additional choice while bringing the regulation for retailers in line with that of Virginia restaurants and breweries.  Filling growlers allows retailers to offer alternative forms of packaging (some consumers prefer the taste of draft beer in a growler over factory bottled/canned beer) and the ability to sell some products that have limited or no availability in packaged form (predominantly kegged products).
