New liquor laws last year have let Howard County bars and liquor stores sell growlers of beer.
These are giant bottles that folks fill from taps. It can be a way to try an unusual beer and to get a volume discount .
Now, the wine folks want in on the act. Arthur Hirsch has a story in the Sun about the effort by Aida Bistro's owner to legalize a similar "fill at the tap" system for wine. They're rhyming "gowlier" with sommelier, and they have support of the Howard County legislators to change in the law in this year's session.
Several of my friends have enjoyed growlers from i.m. Wine in Fulton. I know that the Wine Bin and Victoria Gastro Pub have offered growlers, and Hirsch's story says three other folks have licenses. Have you tried it yet? What did you get? What did you think?
