Walz, Flanagan coming to Rochester to celebrate ‘Free the Growler’ bill

(ABC 6 News) – Thursday, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan will be in Rochester to celebrate the ‘Free the Growler’ bill.

Gov. Walz signed the bill Wednesday afternoon; the new bill raises the annual cap on craft beer production, growler sales, and allows more off-sale options for smaller breweries.

The law also lets cities and counties issue temporary alcohol licenses for special events.
