Governor Abbott Passes Beer-To-Go Law

June 15, 2019 - 12:05 pm

DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Governor Greg Abbott signed a "beer-to-go" law Saturday morning, allowing Texans to take home beer from craft breweries. 

"Craft brewing is a big business in Texas," Abbott said in a Twitter video. 

House Bill 1545 now allows Texans to purchase and take home craft brews from the breweries directly. 

Presented by Sen. Brian Birdwell (R-Granbury), this lets brewers test out new beers before being sent to wholesalers.
