Dear PoPville – Sign the Growlers in DC petition

Back in Oct. 2011 we learned D’Vines was no longer allowed to sell growlers.

A readers sends this petition to sign to remedy that situation:

“This legislation will allow brewpubs in Washington, DC to sell beer to go in growlers. Having the ability to sell beer in reusable containers with a Class-C Tavern/Brewpub license has the potential of adding a great deal of revenue to local businesses and add to the growing craft beer scene in the District.

A number of key restaurant professionals have been working diligently for the past few years to turn Washington, DC into one of the great beer cities of the United States. With DC based breweries like DC Brau, Three Stars and Chocolate city in operation and great beer bars like Pizzeria Paradiso, Brasserie Beck, Churchkey, etc. doing record setting business the only thing the District needs now is great

Selling house-brewed beer in reusable containers, aka “growlers” is a cornerstone of brewpub culture in the United States. Passing the Sustainable Bottle Amendment Act of 2011 would allow brewpubs to expand their market and be the final step in making Washington, DC a city know for great beer.”
