Support Beer-To-Go!

Support Beer-To-Go

Texas is the only state in the country where it’s not legal for craft breweries to sell Beer-To-Go from their tasting rooms. Meanwhile, it’s perfectly permissible to take home products from Texas wineries, distilleries, and brewpubs. Want to #FixTexasBeerLaws so you have the choice to enjoy locally manufactured beer when and where you want it? Here are three FAST and IMPORTANT ways you can make your voice heard and ask your state legislators to support SB 312, filed by Sen. Dawn Buckingham and HB 672, filed by Rep. Eddie Rodriguez.
