Allowing filling of growlers at specialty stores

The use of growlers to purchase and consume beer is deep in tradition in the Colonial region of Virginia.  Currently, most people are limited to the purchase of beer in bottles only, due to limited access to the very few establishments which are capable of filling growlers with specialty ales.  The ammending of this provision will go a long way in opening up the beer market to those in a manner for which it was originally intended.  I strongly encourage the passing of this ammendment.
