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:

Oak Highlands Brewery – Dallas
Whitestone Brewery – Cedar Park
Elysian (Anheuser Busch) – Seattle

A couple things to take from these releases:

Uncle Billy’s – Their widely announced new cans have been approved. They are putting out a couple of new recipes and are going to be having them in new 12oz cans. Look for them around town in the very near future.

Alpine – Since they are being brewed at Green Flash now (or some of it, at least), we will continue to see more approvals on them. We have already seen their kegs show up around town, and this time , we have approvals for bottles. I was originally told we would see them at the beginning of next year, but, since we are getting approvals already, I hope it will be much sooner.

Whitestone Brewery – This will be the fourth brewery in the Cedar Park area. This one goes along with Red Horn, Idle Vine, and Ironsight. They are hoping for a late summer, early fall opening.
