Glad i don't live there!
There are some odd laws in Texas regarding the import and labeling of beer. These laws basically make things be labeled beer, ale or malt liquor based on alcohol percentages (as it was explained to me). It also prohibited a brewery from advertising where you could purchase their beer. It also prohibits importing beer into the state, while allowing wine to be shipped in to individuals. Nor can you buy beer at the brewery, but can purchase wine directly at the winery. I'm posting all this as background because the advertisement and labeling laws were deemed unconstitutional in a US district court. However, the shipping end was not supported. You can read more about it here. http://jesterkingbre...ore-beer-in-tx-

Hopefully this new ruling will mean more out of state breweries will want to send their beer here though! Looking forward to the day I can buy Founders, Bell's, Bruery, and Firestone Walker right down the street instead of having it imported from friends and online stores.
