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 approvals were taking upwards of 40 days to receive. The good news? It is much easier for breweries to make small batch beers, get label approval, and send them to the market fresher. I cannot say that this will mean we will see more limited taproom only beer at bars, but it is one less constraint to worry about. It will also make it easier for breweries to get approvals for one off beers for festivals and beer dinners. While label approvals are still an inconvenience, it is good to see that there are improvements happening.

Brewery Approvals:

Note: I have only been putting new brewery approvals here – anything that is just getting reapproved, I do not list. Along with this, any macro brewery that is approved, I do not put. An example of this would be things like a South Korean macro brewery.

(For TX breweries: B = Brewery, BP = Brewpub)

Nothing new this week.

Andrew Schwab

Twitter: @andrewlschwab Untappd: aschwab My craft beer journey started sometime in university when light beer just was not cutting it anymore. I started venturing out to the beer store and buying any 6 pack that I had not had before. This has now continued for ten years. You will see me visiting almost any and every brewery that I can. I have a passion for travel, craft beer, and college football. When I am not drinking craft beer, I work as a manufacturing engineer in Austin.
