Today's Olympia update. A bill submitted in the Washington House would allow beer or wine retailers in the state to sell growlers of wine. A growler is a container or pitcher provided by the seller or the customer.
Introduced by Rep. Sharon Wylie, D-Vancouver, HB 1742 reads this way:
Licensees holding either a license that permits or a license with an endorsement that permits the sale of beer to a purchaser in a container supplied by the licensee or a sanitary container brought to the premises by the purchaser and filled at the tap at the time of sale may similarly sell wine to a purchaser in such a container.
A Feb. 12 hearing has been set with the House Committee on Government Accountability and Oversight. Wylie is the vice chair of that committee.
