Another example of Texas' stupid beer laws

In Texas, the word "beer" does not mean the same thing it does in the rest of the world.  For tax purposes, "beer" is below 5% ABV.  If a beverage is above 5% ABV, it is not "beer", but is, instead, "ale" or "Malt Liquor".  In the real world, ales, lagers, and malt liquors are all beer.

City of Ate posted a good article about the state of Texas' beer laws.

If HB 602 and HB 660 pass, I wonder if we can convince someone in Austin to start revamping the legal definitions?
