TABC Brewery Approvals March 31st, 2022

First update from 2022 – these include all new breweries that were approved since mid-December. There are some “names” on this list – including Other Half, Oxbow, and Westbrook. I have no real idea what they are planning for Texas, or if it will be very limited, but it is good to see some of these finally showing up. Along with that, it seems like the Texas side is still expanding at a healthy rate.

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)
