Do I have to saran wrap the top of growlers before patrons leave the bar in Eugene, Oregon?

I own two bars in Eugene, Oregon and am considering installing a filling station. I heard a rumor that county law requires businesses to saran wrap the tops of growlers before customers take it out of the store. Is that true?

I am not sure what the laws are for your area, but it is a smart idea in terms of it leaves your establishment sealed.  There are shrink bands that you can purchase that only need a small hairdryer to shrink onto the bottle cap.

No you do not need to put any sealer on it. Just screw the lid on tight and have your customer put it in the trunk or out of reach of driver. As long as the seal is still secure when it gets open and it is full they shouldn't have a problem if they get stopped.  That has been how we have been dealing with it.

The biggest reason for using the shrink seal is to protect your customers from having an "open container" someplace where they're not legally allowed one. It's difficult to offer advice on what you need to do in your location because as far as growlers are concerned, both the laws and enforcement practices are different everywhere. I can tell you that tamper-evident shrink bands are quite inexpensive and simple to use. And if there's any real question as to what's allowed, using them is a good idea.

I believe you mean 'shrink wrap'

I'm not sure about that law.
