Last week, Arizona's brand new growler laws went into effect. As we explained here, Arizona beer nerds can now take home 64oz of their favorite draft beer from some of their favorite craft beer watering holes.

The operative word, however, is some. A few of our coveted craft beer go-to spots that have licenses are classified as restaurants and cannot sell you beer to go.

Here's how the actual law reads:

A BAR, BEER AND WINE BAR, LIQUOR STORE, BEER AND WINE STORE OR DOMESTIC MICROBREWERY LICENSEE WHO DISPENSES BEER ONLY IN A CLEAN GLASS CONTAINER WITH A MAXIMUM CAPACITY THAT DOES NOT EXCEED ONE GALLON AND NOT FOR CONSUMPTION ON THE PREMISES
