Brickbats to Florida Rep. Debbie Mayfield

Brickbats to state Rep. Debbie Mayfield, a Vero Beach Republican, for bottling up the bill allowing craft beer brewers to sell 64-ounce refillable “growlers” at their breweries. Many local brewers were pushing for the bill, which was opposed by the Florida Beer Wholesalers Association, which represents all the state’s Anheuser-Busch distributors. Mayfield refused to give the bill a hearing in the House Business & Professional Regulation Committee, which she chairs.
