Florida Governor Signs Bill to Allow 64-Ounce Beer Growlers

TALLAHASSEE – The vexing battle over beer sizes in Florida is finally coming to end.
Starting July 1, Florida breweries will finally be able to sell beer in the popular 64-ounce refillable size known as a “growler.”
Gov. Rick Scott on Thursday signed into a law a measure that ends the “growler war” over craft beer that has been swirling in the state for several years. It was one of 27 bills the governor signed.
“By making the sale of 64-ounce growlers legal in Florida, we are eliminating another burdensome regulation and allowing more Florida businesses to succeed,” Scott said in a statement.
Current law allows 32-ounce and 128-ounce growlers, but not the size in the middle, which brewers and craft beer fans say is the best size to buy of the increasingly popular brews.
