I have just received reports, both from my sources in the brewing industry and in politics, that a bill banning sales of alcohol in retail stores will be introduced in the Texas Legislature next year! Even worse, given that Republicans and a few conservative Democrats dominate the Lege, my lobbyist sources say it has good chance of passing! That's right – you would only be allowed to buy alcohol by the drink in so-called "private clubs," as is currently the case in dry counties. Imagine — no more grabbing a six-pack on the way home after work. Arrghh! I can't believe this!
Call your state rep and state senator today and demand this outrage be stopped!
Beer at farmers markets? Yes please.
