Growler regulation change in CA

California breweries are now permitted to fill growlers with another brewery's label, though some have indicated they will not:

Under the old policy, I was unable to get my original Lagunitas growler filled because they had changed the design and label and, technically and bizarrely, my Lagunitas growler was therefore no longer a Lagunitas growler. I hope this means they'll fill it now- I hate the mason jars and faux 40oz jobs they're using now.
