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
b = Small format bottle
c = Small format (12oz) can
C = Larger format cans

A couple things to take from these releases:

Town in City – Many people in Houston have been following this place for quite some time. It is good to see that hey are coming together and should be releasing beer in the near future. They will be located near the recently approved Spindle Tap Brewing Company.

Town in City Brewing

Austin Beerworks – This week they are releasing two beers that both sound great. Templar Nights is a Barrel Aged beer aged with Cherries. All I can say is that it will be delicious and worth hunting down.
