Minnesota, which prohibits all off-premise use package sales of alcohol on Sundays, was close to enacting a compromise law allowing the Sunday sales of “growlers” by craft brewers – half-gallon refillable containers that customers could have filled with beer, and take home and consume there. The Teamsters, who also oppose opening liquor stores on Sundays, objected to the legislation after an unidentified alcohol distributor allegedly told the union that enactment of the legislation would give the wholesaler the right to reopen a collective bargaining agreement for mid-term bargaining. As a result, the “growler” legislation may not make it out of Committee. Although groups like the Minnesota Beer Activists don’t intend to take the Teamsters action lying down, for now it may be better to simply buy extra beer on Saturday nights.
