I wonder if PA has a law like that, because we fill any kind of growler people bring to us at Troegs. We put our own label on all of them, though, so I think that covers it.

PA has some horribly anachronistic liquor laws so it wouldn't surprise me. But yes, putting a label on the container 100% covers your bottom parts.

My scratch 16 is sitting in a Lancaster brewing co growler .

I always call ahead and ask places if they fill "outside" growlers. most are cool with it. Occasionally some aren't. Iron Hill won't fill outsides, but they will swap your growler for one of theirs for no charge.

I don't need a growler from every brewery under the sun. I went to Roy Pitz yesterday (who do fill outsides), I brought a sly fox growler, then bought a second one from them. so they got one growler sale from me, plus two fills, and a pint glass.

I'm pretty sure my beer distributor's owner would not only fill other brewery's growlers, he'd probably let me fill empty panty-hose eggs with his beer. No kidding - are you serious?!? You're throwing principles of duty owed, proximate cause and forseen consequences into an argument about some quivering, fraidy scared, casper milk-toast brewery owner?!?

HA!

I throw my shoe at you!

If you got it yesterday, I filled it for you I filled a couple LBC and even more Iron Hill growlers yesterday.

What do you think of #16, by the way? I wasn't that impressed with it. It was good, but not as good as I was expecting.

I got a growler from MBC and it has the company name, but no label. They write the beer type on the cap in black marker. I think that the law just wants to be able to track any problems down to the maker, and I don't blame them.

I almost got a growler from Founders in GR, but I had already bought a 4-pack of Harvest Wet-hop and Backwoods Bastard. Not cheap beer. The Fresh Hopped Harvest was awsesum though... I sorely missed getting any Sierra Nevada Harvest, so this was a nice surprise and it tasted great! I'm having a hard time saving it for the New Years Eve party!

Yea well they cannot by Alaskan Law fill a growler with anything over 6%. And if the beer is over 6% i have to pay 16oz price for an 8oz

This is just another reason why California sucks so bad. I have only come to realizing it after living here.

If something exists: California has a law for it

It is as simple as that and 95% of the time, the law is not in the consumers favor.

I could go on about the light bulb standards that I am dealing with right now, but I will just get more pissed off.

You forgot about the consumer's protection side though. Like the warning labels that lightbulbs might be harmful if swallowed or that they may contain materials that give lab rats cancer.

At least I find these warnings helpful!
