As you may know by now, new legislation signed into law in May has changed the regulations on growlers. Thanks to Senate Bill 1397, nicknamed the "Liquor Omnibus" bill, breweries will soon be able to fill growlers made out of stainless steel, ceramic, and any nonporous, sanitary material.
The new law goes into effect at midnight Thursday, July 24 and craft breweries all over the state will be celebrating by participating in the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild's Great Growler Fill.
Why does the change matter? It has a lot to do with the history of transporting draft beer and the new ways breweries will now be able to sell their brews to consumers. To get the whole story on why "Steel Kicks Glass" check out our post about the new law.
The following breweries in Phoenix and throughout the state will be participating in the Great Growler Fill:
- Four Peaks Brewing Company (8th Street Location) - Sleepy Dog Brewery - SanTan Brewing Company - North Mountain Brewing Company - Arizona Wilderness Brewing Company - Papago Brewing Company - Lumberyard Brewing Company (Flagstaff) - World of Beer (Tempe, Gilbert, Tucson)
All participating locaitons will be giving away at least 10 growlers starting at midnight -- all you have to do to have a chance to win one is be there.
