TABC Label and Brewery Approvals Jan 20 2015

Some of you may notice that this one was released on Thursday instead of the usual Monday. I am thinking that we may be changing the date of the articles to Thursday so we can get most of the weeks stuff covered on the week of. It may switch back, but for now, I think I may go this route.

With that said, there are some interesting things on this week’s approval. 8th Wonder is starting to can (if you did not see that announced last week), and we are starting to see their can approvals come through. I am a big fan of Rocket Fuel, and it could easily replace my coffee if my company would let me drink on/before my job. But, that is frowned upon.

Community is also starting to make Mosaic IPA in cans, which I feel has been needed (I am a big fan of canned beers in general over bottles). Then there is Zilker, with a 32oz can of Marco IPA.

Shiner is branching out some and making an IPA. They have done a Pale Ale in the past, but this likely will be their most hoppy beer to date.

Blackwater Draw has received a brewpub license for their second location, which likely will be more of an actual brewery space to allow larger production. It’s location is in Bryan, as opposed to College Station.
