I'm planning on distributing the beer I brew here in California to other states using growlers. Is it first legal to distribute beer in growlers, and will I also run into legal restrictions on interstate growler distribution?

The laws governing growler filling and distribution can be tricky, and in some cases unclear. Furthermore, they can vary based on state and even municipality. Unfortunately we're not qualified to provide legal advice so your best bet is to contact the agency that regulates alcohol in your state and the states you plan to distribute to. They should be able to provide some clarity on your options.

Rogue distributes growlers of Dead Guy and Yellow Snow, and I have purchased them in San Diego from BevMo.  As others have said, I'm not a lawyer, but I take this as evidence that it can be done.

California Craftbeer laws are ever changing. It's best to go direct to them here:

It varies per state and it is best to contact each state directly.   There are some new growlers on the market that can keep beer fresh for up to 30 days.  Otherwise most growlers have a limited shelf life.

In my experience, a growler is not a good long term container for beer due to its inability to make a strong enough seal.  I would not recommend storing beer for more than 48-72 hours in a growler unless you can improve the seal.
