Live Oak, Peticolas and Revolver Brewing to Sue the State

Wendy, over at Bitch Beer, just reported that Live Oak Brewing Company in Austin, Revolver Brewing in Granbury, and Peticolas Brewing Company in Dallas will file a property rights lawsuit against the State of Texas.

At issue is the infamous 2013 law that made it illegal in Texas for breweries to sell their distribution rights. Since distributors could theoretically turn around and sell those rights to another distributor, they breweries believe that the state violated its constitution which protects business property rights when the law was passed.

There is supposed to be a press conference at 10 am today in Dallas and Houston to announce the details of the lawsuit.

This is going to be interesting.
