Attention Texas Legislators: We could have a beer industry like this! Think of the taxes!

A story at WinesandVines.com shows just how successful the Texas Wine Industry has become.  Over the last decade, vintners have overcome disease and bad process to make the wine area around Fredericksburg (aka, Paradise) home to several excellent wineries.

That's because the State Legislature passed laws making it easier to open and run wineries, including selling wine without a distributor; selling at the winery; and even allowing places to serve food and wine, sell at the winery, and sell to a distributor to resell to a retailer.  We could have a state with 200 breweries, if only we had some legislators with vision, and the courage to stand up to the WBDT.

Just saying. . .
