One of the best ways you can help us save the growler is to reach out to your Minnesota state representatives.FIND MY LEGISLATOR
If you’re a little shy or if this is your first time contacting your representative, below is a sample script for calling and leaving a voicemail. Calling makes the biggest impact! Emailing is useful, too.
“Hello [your representative], my name is [your name]. I’m a constituent in your district and I am a customer of Castle Danger Brewery. I’m a fan of Minnesota Craft Beer and the impact craft brewers have on our community, tourism, and economy. I think the growler restrictions imposed by existing law are unfair to Minnesota craft brewers and customers. I encourage you to support our local small businesses by helping raise the growler cap, which would allow Minnesota breweries of all sizes to sell beer from their taprooms while continuing to grow and provide great beer to their customers from near and far. Your support can impact more than 160 small businesses in Minnesota. Thank you for your hard work!”
