TABC Label and Brewery Approvals Jan 20 2015

On most weeks, TABC releases Label and Brewery approvals that have been approved for sale in Texas. Every beer that is sold in Texas has to go through this process before you can see it on store shelves. This is a way to see what beer will be coming into the Texas market before it shows up at your local bottle shop or craft beer bar. The time frame between showing up on the label approval list and hitting the shelves could be anywhere from a day to a couple of months out.

The same can be said for breweries. The brewery approvals tend to be even further out. Every brewery sold in Texas has to go through the same process to get approved by the TABC. Once they do this, they can then get labels approved.

I only include craft beer labels that have been approved.

After each label, I have indicated what they have been approved to sell in. They are as follows:

K = Keg
B = Large format bottle
bb = 16oz format bottle
b = Small format bottle
c = Small format (12oz) can
C = Larger format cans

A couple things to take from these releases:

These articles should be updated at their more regular times starting next week again. I am back in the U.S., so it should be much easier. This one, again, is shorter due to that reason.

(512) Brewing – Finally releasing more bottles. This time, it will be their Funky Kingston. Funky Kingston has shown up at anniversary parties in the past and is a funky ale using Brett aged in red wine barrels. Along with this, the Smash IPA is a new release from them – a single hop/single malt IPA that will be first released on an upcoming river cruise in Austin later this month.
