But that's about to change. The restaurant is now under new management and ownership and will be closing in September. After undergoing a complete makeover, it will reopen in October as Park Place Bar & Grill.

Growlers-Fowle.jpg
It's been just about two years since Arizona's lawmakers made the first set of commonsense changes to the state's laws concerning growlers -- large jugs that can be filled with draft beer and taken home.
