Does anyone know what's going on with the various bills? There was one to allow retailers and bars to fill growlers. There was one to make it easier for small brewers to switch wholesalers. There was one to create a small brewers license to avoid the semantic shitstorm that ABCC created this summer when it tried to redefine the farmer-brewer license. All this talk of Jack's Abby, Blatant, and other local brewers with more kegs than bottles makes me dream for a one-stop-shop for growler fills from these guys... Is there any other pending legislation? I'd love to see a) the creation of a rule to allow contract brewers to have a tasting/retail room somewhere other than their brewery (e.g., what Pretty Things had in mind for Somerville) and b) clarification on the packaging rules wrt growlers and labels, specifically whether "outside" or unlabeled growlers may be filled on-demand by brewers.
