Combined with the failure of a bill that would have allowed brewpubs to distribute their beers and another bill that would have given microbrewers what they really want – the right to retail sales on brewery premises – the Texas Legislature has once again done wrong to our state's small businesses and consumers. In fact, the only thing they accomplished beer-related was to take away a tax exemption for microbrewers. Way to go, Lege.
