Matt Bitsche of Wichita Falls Brewing Co. heralded Texas lawmakers’ overhaul of state beer laws as the biggest modernization of antiquated rules since 1935 when they were first written.
Beer-to-go for producers and simpler labeling for craft brews were awaiting Gov. Greg Abbott’s signature Friday. They were part of a larger bill to revamp the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and keep it operating for the next 12 years.
“This law is about job creation, economic development, and support for entrepreneurship,” Bitsche, owner of the local brewery, said.
