TABC Brewery Approvals June 11th, 2021
There are a lot of new and interesting breweries coming into Texas. Some new ones with more of a name include Drake’s, Short’s, and Ex Novo. Along with that, the number of breweries opening in Texas continue to grow. The Covid slow down of new brewery approvals has definitely ceased.
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).
(For TX breweries: B = Brewery, BP = Brewpub)
