TABC Label and Brewery Approvals Oct 10 2017

More labels for you to enjoy. Looks like we are starting to see Abyss variants showing up in bottles…which is always nice. We have a first can from Texas Beer Company (in Taylor) as well. And, what appears to be a 6L bottle of a Wild Ale from Lakewood Brewing Company. If you wanted a…

We are starting to see some beers showing up from Humble’s new Ingenious Brewing. They are not quite open but have already heard good things about them. Along with them, I just hope some of these St. Arnold beers make it beyond the taproom. This week’s TABC Label Approvals: K = Keg B = Large…

TABC Label and Brewery Approvals Sept 26 2017

Well, I missed another week. Not due to laziness this time, but just due to there only being 30 or so last week…and felt it would be better just to leave them for another week. With that said, we seem to have been overloaded with keg approvals from brewpubs this week. Braindead, St. Elmo, El…

Looks like Texas will be seeing Bell’s Black Note this year, based off of the approvals. Along with that, Austin’s Suds Monkey is starting to get can approvals for their new brewery. This week’s TABC Label Approvals: K = Keg B = Large format bottle bb = 16oz format bottle b = Small format bottle…

TABC Label and Brewery Approvals Sept 6 2017

It was a holiday weekend, so I didn’t get around to doing this until a day later. With that said, a solid list of approvals came through over the last week. This week’s TABC Label Approvals: K = Keg B = Large format bottle bb = 16oz format bottle b = Small format bottle c…

It’s been a rough week for a big portion of Texas, especially Houston. Many breweries/beer bars around the state are putting on events to help raise money for Houston, I highly recommend you go have some beers for a cause. With that said, here are the label approvals. This week’s TABC Label Approvals: K =…

TABC Label and Brewery Approvals Aug 22 2017

Not nearly as many approvals as we have been seeing lately. With that said, we had 3 new Texas breweries receiving their licenses from the TABC. It is definitely out of the norm to see that many getting approval in one week. This week’s TABC Label Approvals: K = Keg B = Large format bottle…

TABC Label and Brewery Approvals Aug 15 2017

It appears that the TABC has finally gotten their acts together (as far as label approvals go….everything else is still a mess). Hops & Grain received a couple of approvals within 48 hours and St. Elmo had a turnaround on one label of less than 24 hours. Compare this to the beginning of the year….where…

Shorter list for this week’s TABC label and brewery approvals. I don’t have much to add here for this week, so you can jump right into the approvals. This week’s TABC Label Approvals: K = Keg B = Large format bottle bb = 16oz format bottle b = Small format bottle c = Small format…
