Bill for Texas microbrewers finally filed

On Monday, Rep. Jessica Farrar of Houston filed the bill that Friends of Texas Microbreweries have hoped for — if passed into law, it would allow brewers that make less than 75,000 barrels per year to sell their product on the premises of their breweries. Winemakers are already allowed to do this; beermakers are not. This would be a wonderful thing for us beer drinkers, and would bring extra profits to hardworking people who really care about making quality beer.

Track the progress of the bill here.

Also, I will be covering the bill for The Austin Chronicle here.
