Strike Down the Monopoly on Growler Beer Sales

Beer lovers unite!

Last year, DC's Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) allowed Class "B" Manufacturer to sell 64oz growlers of fresh beer for the first time.

Council-member Jim Graham has introduced legislation to expand growler sales, but instead of opening sales up to all beer retailers, his proposed law would limit growler sales to large "Class B" supermarkets such as Whole Foods--leaving the small neighborhood businesses you and I normally buy from out in the cold.

If you support local business and great beer, please sign this petition today and tell Council-member Graham to amend his Omnibus Alcohol Legislation to include ALL "Class B"'s and "A"s retailers.

The legislation is moving fast--if you want to make sure your favorite retailer can sell you fresh beer in a growler, it is urgent that you sign right away.
