Asheville Growler Opens
A beer store opens in Asheville, but the owner's still waiting for state approval that would allow him to fill bottles of beer that you can take home.
Asheville Growler opened Wednesday afternoon on Merrimon Avenue selling beer by the pint on premise. According to owner Sean McNeal, the ABC Commission met in Raleigh to vote on regulations that would allow him to fill and sell growlers of beer.
State lawmakers passed a bill that would allow such businesses, but the ABC Commission told McNeal he could not fill growlers before sanitation rules are in place.
