    I'm sure many of you are quite aware of the efforts to change regulations affecting small craft breweries in the state, but just in case...

    I recently compiled the most recent study on economic impact by the Texas craft being industry along with a House report on the current and proposed regulations. There is also info about a couple Senators who are heading up a committee of industry stakeholders to give recommendations on proposed legislation. I'm urging everyone to contact them and your local reps to express support for change. Also, tell them to make sure the macros don't get an overwhelming influence on this committee!

    Thanks and Cheers!
