Limits on where they can sell their product could be eased
The Texas Senate is considering a package of legislation which would let the state’s micro-breweries get more of their product to more beer drinkers. Debate was held last Tuesday. St. Arnold Brewing Company owner Brock Wagner says the current system works, but needs some changes.
“If (microbrewers) could sell their beer through a distributor,” Wagner says, “to restaurants, grocery stores and all that, it would really give a path for growth in these businesses.”
Both sides of the issue have been given until Monday to reach an agreement. If they fail, the issue could be sidelined for the rest of the legislative session, disappointing members of the Texas Craft Brewers Guild.
