New law may boost Ariz. craft-beer industry sales

PHOENIX (AP) - 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.
