Under the new laws, Texas brewpubs, like wineries, now can market their products off site by selling either to distributors for resale or directly to retailers. The latter sales, called “self-distribution,” are restricted to brewpubs holding wine and beer retailer’s permits that only sell what they brew themselves, whether on site or for resale. These sales to retailers are limited to no more than 1,000 barrels per location per year, not to exceed a combined 2,500 barrels annually for all brewpubs with the same owner.
