Winemaker Paul Beveridge displays the type of wine “growler” bottle he would like to see available to consumers, at his winery in Seattle. Wine drinkers are one step closer to being able to purchase and refill their favorite pours in reusable growlers closer to home instead of making a trip to the winery. Some state winemakers are pushing House Bill 1039 as a way to expand wine sales and reduce the carbon footprint of wine bottles. If approved, consumers would be able to bring or buy refillable growlers at any business that has a license to sell wine.
