HB 602 recently passed the Texas House. This will, if signed into law, finally legalizes Texas brewery’s ability to include a maximum of 144 ounces of souvenir beer-to-go as part their tours. Though it passed the Texas House, it isn’t law yet. It is now scheduled for a public hearing to take place this coming Tuesday. That’s May 10th. The hearing will take place before the Texas Senate Business & Commerce Committee.

Needless to say, we here at DFWHops support this bill! It’s a small step for the Texas Craft Beer scene, but its an important step.

This bill has already unanimously passed in the Texas House, but it still needs your help!

If it’s at all possible to be there to voice your support for the bill, please make the trip! You know the folks with the money who are against this sort of thing are gonna be there. The more craft enthusiasts who can show up, the better!
