Allow Brewpubs to Sell to Distributors

Currently, Texas law prohibits brewpubs from selling their beer to wholesalers/distributors. This means the only place you can buy a brewpub's beer is at their brewpub. Meanwhile, out-of-state brewpubs are allowed to do this. This limits the potential market for Texas brewpubs and restricts their growth.

    Yes. This. No reason a tiny little beginning brewery should have to decide upfront whether to market directly to consumers or go through the distribution channels. Let them grow organically, and give them the flexibility to change their business models to meet local and current demands. Help these small businesses succeed!
