Texas House of Representative Research Organization Report: Small craft producers seek alcohol regulation revisions
On Tuesday, June 12, 2012, The Texas House of Representatives released a study on the alcohol regulations currently in place and a review of proposed changes from within the industry. This study is a result of the outcry from breweries, brewpubs, and consumers, to loosen the restrictions they are faced with in getting their product to the consumer. The TABC and Senator Van de Putte organized a work-group of industry members (and Open The Taps) to come together to discuss the issues and come up with a solution that can benefit everyone. The group has met twice and we are working to make sure the consumer is represented at all of these discussions. This study and the workgroup meetings are an important step in our mission to make Texas more craft beer friendly. The recognition of the issues and proposed solutions by one of our governing bodies is an essential part of the process; with the session coming up in 2013, it's great to have this issue fresh in their minds!
