Yes for Growlers!
 

I support local gourmet shops to sell beer in "growler" form to take off premises. Many states sell beer this way in the North, like Pennsylvania and New York. Why not Virginia? Even Canada does it! They say they "prefer the refillable bottle mainly because it is the least expensive packaging option" (www.grrn.org/beverage/refillables/canada.html). Growlers are reusable, recyclable, with little to no packaging. This is great for the state! A green alternative! Furthermore, many beers are not sold in traditional bottles and can only be sold by the keg. Our only opportunity to try these beers would be with a growler! I hope you decide to amend the law so local Virginia shops can sell growlers, a green alternative.
