TABC Brewery Approvals May 16th, 2023

It has been another 7 months since the last update even after I said I would not take that long. Anyways, I did. So, that means there are a LOT of new approvals on this list. Note that MANY of these will already be on the shelves (hey, if you are approved 6 months back, I would expect to see you floating around already). The same goes for local brewery approvals, they may already be open and operating for months now, but I will still give them a shoutout as the new “kids” on the block. I do skip through “breweries” that look like they are just making seltzers (they can fall under the same license, which tend to be distilleries getting a brewery license), ones that have already been in Texas previously (at least that I remember), and clearly macro ones. Anyways, go support some of the newer places around. The approvals on this list are basically from October 15th to now.

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).
