Over the last week, we started seeing Knee Deep show up in stores in Austin. It looks like their kegs will be following right after based on these approvals. Along with this, I take it this is why Alesmith released all their beers in DFW this week – all of their keg approvals just came through.

Then you have Braindead Brewing (Dallas) who received their first bottle approval. It will likely be used for events and not necessarily distribution.

As far as the brewery approvals go, Saloon Door Brewing received theirs. It looks like they are already really close to opening. Just recently, though, they had to change their name from Southern Draw Brewing to Saloon Door Brewing.

Brewery Approvals:

Note: I have only been putting new brewery approvals here – anything that is just getting reapproved, I do not list. Along with this, any macro brewery that is approved, I do not put. An example of this would be things like a South Korean macro brewery.

(For TX breweries: B = Brewery, BP = Brewpub)

Joseph James Brewing – Nevada
Saloon Door Brewing – Webster (BP)
Platypus Brewing – Houston (BP)
