Please Allow the Filling of Growlers by Gourmet Shops

As a Virginia citizen, I request that the ABC permit the use of growlers for beer sales.  This method of beer sales/distribution permits a broad range of beers, brewed by small scale breweries, to new markets that would typically be unavailable to the brewer and the consumer.  As this represents a new potential revenue stream for small businesses (as well as Virginia through taxes) in these challenging economic times, I fail to see a negative aspect to this proposal.  It would be a win for small businesses, a win for the consumer, and a win for the Commonwealth.
