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

TABC Brewery Approvals:

Pinthouse Pizza Lamar – Austin
Long Wooden Spoon – Amarillo
Barley & Board – Denton

Labels Approved:

Texian – It sounds like we should start seeing more from Texian in the near future. I recently had one of their Brett IPAs at the Big Texas Beer Festival and it was great. It sounds like they may be doing more things in that area, so I am looking forward to seeing them at bars again.

Pinthouse Pizza South – One step closer to opening. Granted, they are still a bit away from opening, it is good to see that they have this one obstacle taken care of.

Bull Creek – Located north of Austin, they have been quiet as of late about their opening. It is good to see that they are getting labels approved again. Hopefully, that means they will officially open their doors in the near future.
