Does a simple screw cap for a growler make it okay to carry it in a car or do I need to use something more elaborate?

Under New York State law (and other states), alcoholic beverages must be sealed in order to be transported in private vehicles to avoid "open container" violations.

A growler is an open container.  Whether a screw cap counts as a "seal" depends on the applicable state law (some states are stricter than others).  Of course, as a general rule, a simple screw cap (without a breakable seal) will not make it okay to carry in a private vehicle.  In most open container states, you will have to use either a breakable-seal-screwcap or shrink tape that also identifies the container as beer.  The BEST alternative, however, is to simply place all growlers in the trunk of your private vehicle.  Open containers of alcohol can be placed in the trunk without violating open container laws.
