Florida Moves to OK Growlers

It’s never simple when it comes to regulations in the alcohol beverage world.  The Florida Senate approved 64-ounce growler fills of beer but at the same time they are restricting direct sales to consumers by craft brewers making more than 1,000 barrels.  They are limited to 20% direct-to-consumer sales of bottled or canned beer.  After that, they must sell through a distributor.  Craft brewers feel the restrictions are bad for the burgeoning craft industry.  The Florida House of Representatives has yet to weigh in.
