It’s definitely no surprise to anyone who knows me that I love beer, especially craft brews. My wife doesn’t like to send me to get beer because I will sit in the beer aisle for 20 to 30 minutes looking for something new or interesting to drink and, fortunately, there are a lot of craft breweries in Texas and all over the country.
That’s good for a self-proclaimed beer nerd like me. I even floated the idea of brewing and selling my own beer, which got me looking at the laws and regulations required to own a brewery in Texas. Like many industries in Texas, the rhetoric of freedom doesn’t pan out in reality. Brewing is a highly regulated industry, especially the selling and distribution of beer.
