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. It is a way to see what beer will be coming into the Texas market before it shows up at your local bottle shop. 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
b = Small format bottle
c = Small format (12oz) can
C = Larger format cans

TABC Brewery Approvals:

Oud Beersel – Belgium
Rebel Toad Brewing – Corpus Christi

A couple things to take from these releases:

Zilker Brewing Company – While it is just label approvals, they are still working to getting closer to their opening. They are still hoping for an early summer opening for at least their taproom. This will be a great addition to the east side of Austin.

Prairie – Ok-Si is yet another imperial stout from Praire. However, this one is aged in tequila barrels and should be delicious just like the rest of them. Hopefully, we see it on the shelves in the next couple of weeks.

Prairie - Ok-Si

Real Ale – It appears they are releasing their Gose again. All I can say is that I drank a lot of it last summer, and I likely will be again. Low ABV beers in cans are great things to have around.
