The biggest surprise this week, for me, is seeing Bear Republic showing back up on approvals. Bear Republic pulled out of Texas as some point last year due to the California drought, or so they say. These are the first approvals since that pull out which makes me think that they are planning on showing back up in Texas.

Other notes are the Independence plans to make a Cucumber Redbud. Their original Redbud was good enough, so I am curious how this one turns out. I believe this will be the first cucumber beer that I have seen made in Austin.

Oil Horse is a new brewery out of Longview. They also have received their first approvals this week for a couple of kegs.

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)

None this week.
