Twitter: @andrewlschwab Untappd: aschwab My craft beer journey started sometime in university when light beer just was not cutting it anymore. I started venturing out to the beer store and buying any 6 pack that I had not had before. This has now continued for ten years. You will see me visiting almost any and every brewery that I can. I have a passion for travel, craft beer, and college football. When I am not drinking craft beer, I work as a manufacturing engineer in Austin.

The main bit of news over the last week is that Texas is one step closer to allowing beer-to-go sales from breweries. The battle now will come from the senate, which “should” be easier to get past than the house. But, this is Texas, so no one really knows. That should happen in a week or two. This week’s TABC Label Approvals: K = Keg B = Large format bottle bb = 16oz format bottle …

The legislative battle over beer-to-go sales from breweries may be slowing down thanks to simple donations from specific distributors to specific people in charge. It is amazing how a little money can make someone not pass laws that actually help the small businesses of the state. You can read more about that here and who is the latest person that the distributors paid off (spoiler: it is Kelly Hancock of North Richland Hills for $33k): …

TABC Label and Brewery Approvals April 2 2019

Seems like a lot less Texas beers in this week’s approvals, but still a solid number of new beers are coming in.

This is a much shorter list than previous weeks, I do not quite know the reasoning (seems to be about a third of what is normally approved). It could just be the TABC being the TABC…..
