Why Texas Politicians and Craft Beer Go Hand-in-Hand

A politician walks into a bar…

OK, we’ll skip the jokes because this is a serious topic that all Texas Craft Beer fans need to know about!

Texas’ beer industry has been growing, and the Lone Star State now has more than 400 brewers and beer distributors in over 45,000 retail outlets. The industry creates $21 billion a year in total economic impact to Texas, including jobs, wages and taxes, according to a study released in March.  Texas charges a 20-cent tax per gallon for off-premise sales of beer (beer with 4 percent alcohol by weight) — or $6 per barrel.  The state also has a 14-percent tax on on-premise beer sales and a 5 cents per drink tax on airline beer sales.

Come join Don Huffines and Deep Ellum Brewing, Co. in taking a stand against big government while showing your support for Texas microbreweries.

Bring a friend- it’s only $10 to get in. Cheers!
