    Check out this link and you can find what labels have been approved by the TABC. In just a couple minutes searching I have found that Dogfish Noble Rot has been approved for package and draft as well as labels from Lazy Magnolia Brewing and Goose Island. What will you find?

    I cant recall correctly but isn't Goose Island owned by In-Bev?

    Correct. Goose Island was bought out by In-Bev.

    Nice. So they are starting with Lolita and Nut Brown Ale...I assume we will get some others at some point. Would love some Bourbon County on tap....

    TABC does nothing cool. They just do their job (especially when AB-InBev tells them how high to jump). The breweries that actually pony up the cash for licensing in TX are the cool ones.

    Never had that one. If you viewed my ST thread they confirmed it via email and no plans for expansion the next 2 yrs. :( I was looking to have some ST on the regular.

    Hoping this opens the Goose Island floodgates! It's getting hard for me to lug all that back whenever I visit family in Ohio!

    Bourbon County would be the best news i've heard in a while. Still, even if they do come, they'll test the waters for at least a year before bringing in the good stuff.

    Juliet was just approved on 4-04, so someone at GI is actively applying for beers to be approved to TX. If anything comes of it we will see, but the countdown is on.

    Quick question, do they have to put their initial fee of 2k or whatever ridiculous price in order to submit labels or can they do this before that? Wonder if they are seeing how many they can get approved before paying up

    They do not, at least not anymore. When GI was in Texas, about 5-6years ago maybe. Just the website for that establishment does not update per region.

    I really hope this website is inaccurate... I've found a couple of beers that were just released that do not show label approval from TABC on here.

    i have no idea. they applied for TABC licensing under the releta name though.
     
  32. lokieman

    lokieman Jan 20, 2011 Oklahoma

    Just searched both and Saranac pulled up a few but none of the Shmaltz stuff and Releta returned no results...I'm not sure their search engine is accurate.

    the search function has been worthless for me as well. i just scrolled back through a few months, looking at all results. all the schmaltz beers are on there.

    Make sure you're searching under trade name instead of brand name.

    With all this Goose Island talk, I sent them an email so, the ball is in there court. Let's see what they have to say.
