The bill in the Texas Legislature that would allow microbrewers to sell their product on the premises of their breweries appears to be dead.
Brock Wagner of Saint Arnold Brewing told the Austin Chronicle:
Our bill was opposed by Mike McKinney of the Wholesale Beer Distributors of Texas, and with him opposed to it, we were not able to even get a hearing on the bill in committee.”
Makes no sense to me. If you take the tour, begin to appreciate the place where the beer is made, maybe have a free sample, and then want to buy a 6-pack to take home shouldn’t you be allowed to?
