    From Slate;


    Obviously other battles are still ongoing just trying to get more freedom for micros based in Texas. But this article illustrates how other states are loosening rules well beyond what were are hoping to see changed. I have a friend in Austin who makes excellent beers with his Sabco Brew Magic set up. His beers would be very welcome next to any keg at any bar anywhere.

    I get a bit tired of hearing Governor Good Hair talk about how 'business friendly' Texas is. Certain businesses maybe, but on the nano/microbrewery front...nah (as many of us have known for too long).

    Texas will need to change its licensing fees to allow a nano-brewery to be financially justifiably.
