Getting A ‘To Go’ Growler In Michigan May Get Easier
Attention lovers of craft beers, it might soon be easier to get that growler to go! Earlier this week, Governor Snyder signed legislation which is designed to expand the availability of growlers for takeout craft beer purchases. According to a report by US News, the bill revises the definition of an "eligible merchant" for legally selling and filling growlers.
The revenue and employment from craft brewing in Michigan is quite impressive. According to a report last May from Mlive, Michigan's beer industry was worth $10.5 Billion (with a 'B') in 2016. Plus, over 34,000 jobs in Michigan are directly tied to beer, whether through brewing, wholesale or in retailing.
