TABC Brewery Approvals December 17th, 2021

So, if I wait 6 months to put these out, it seems like A LOT of breweries are opening or coming into Texas (as you will see below). Since I am not as in tune with the beer scene these days, many of these have been flying under my radar. Needless to say, it is good to see that places are still opening in much smaller towns, along with other Texas breweries getting second locations. I will try to not wait this long for the next update. With that said, many of the local breweries on the list may have already opened since they received approvals, or very close to it. Same goes for the out of state breweries, you may already be seeing their beers on your local beer shop’s shelves.

Recent Brewery Approvals:

For Texas, to make beer here or sell beer here, you require a brewery approval through the TABC. This is a list of everything that has received approvals to make, or sell in Texas (if an out of state brewery). I generally will not list approvals that are repeat approvals (meaning a new license for a place that is already operating) or a brewery that is a macro producer (or owned by one).
