The biggest news this week has got to be that Wicked Weed Brewing is coming to Texas. Now, Wicked Weed’s distribution, up to this point, has been fairly limited outside of their state (and very few states even get it). So, this is a big “get” for Texas. Along with Wicked Weed, Anthem Brewing (OKC) also received brewery approval.

On to the beer labels, Last Stand is starting to get their bottles approved. You should expect to see their two bombers on our local shelves soon. They are also hosting their first anniversary party this Saturday. As of this week, they have moved their taproom into their adjacent building so that they have more space and can run the brewery while having the taproom open. I still think they are a brewery that has a lot of potential going forward.

Then you will notice Montucky Cold Snack. It is made by a brewery that donates 8% of all of their profits to charity and you will find them mainly in the Pacific Northwest. It is not meant to compete with all of the IPAs of the world, but it is taking aim at the PBR drinkers. Flood Distributing has supposedly picked this beer up and you should see it on the shelves in the near future. It will be a good alternative and should be around the same price point as many of the other macro beers at your local dive bar.

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)

Wicked Weed Brewing – NC
Urban Farmhouse Brewing (aka Anthem Brewing) – OKC
The Bruery (2nd address for brewing, so nothing new) – CA
Heller-Brau Trum – Germany
