New law may boost Arizona craft-beer industry sales

PHOENIX — The growing Arizona craft-beer industry could boost sales in
August when a new law allows restaurants, bars and liquor stores to sell glass
“growlers” of draft beer to take home.

The Arizona Republic reports
that the new law gives variety of businesses with liquor licenses a chance to
fill growlers, allowing people to bring home beer not available in bottles or
cans.

In August, beer lovers will be able to take home a small jug of their favorite
brews from Four Peaks, Papago Brewing Co. and others without visiting the
source because other stores and bars with those beers on tap can offer
growlers.

It’s even possible that shoppers could find Walgreens drugstores installing
taps and offering growlers because the chain was a proponent of the new
Arizona law.
