Beyond specific brewery rules – Example: We only fill our branded growlers OR we’ll put our sticker on your growler if you bring a growler from another brewery, growler laws vary. They vary state by state and sometimes municipality by municipality. For example, some states allow unlabeled growlers to be filled while others do not. There are also questions on what different types of establishments (breweries, retail outlets, etc) can legally fill growlers.
The Brewers Association has created a database of U.S. state laws relating to “growlers,” i.e., draft beer packaged for off premises consumption by the manufacturing brewery.
Note that there are a lot of factors and things change. It’s probably best to confirm specific requirements with the establishment you plan to visit.
