Allow Growlers please and thank you

Growler sales by specialty beer and wine shops is a common industry practice in many states in the southeast . It does not encourage heavier consumption in any way, and is best suitted for specialty store sales versus on-premise license sales.  Also it is descrimitory to the specialty licensees to only allow on-premise licensees to sell this product which is an off-premise item.  I can see no way that this would cause problems for the VABC, as it is widely practiced throughout other states withou issue.  This would simply allow the specialty licensees to better serve their market.
