More than a dozen Austin-area breweries and restaurants are celebrating Small Business Saturday this year by selling limited-edition glassware to participating customers.

According to a news release from the Texas Craft Brewers Guild, about one dollar from the sale of each glass Nov. 30 will go to benefit the nonprofit organization. The glass was designed by Texas-based artist Alana Louise and features scenes of Texas’ landscapes and wildlife.


A total of 18 breweries and restaurants In Austin and surrounding communities are participating in the event on Small Business Saturday. The shopping event is held annually and aims to support local businesses the day after Black Friday.

“The story of craft beer in Texas is the story of small business,” said Caroline Wallace, the deputy director of the Texas Craft Brewers Guild, in the organization’s news release.

The Texas Craft Brewers Guild helped to pass legislation in the 86th Texas Legislature that permits Texas breweries to sell beer to go from their premises. Texas was the last state in the country to permit those sales.
