Statewide

Some breweries may qualify to operate as restaurants under new TABC guidelines

Some breweries across the state may now reopen as restaurants after the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission on July 24 released new guidelines. Those new guidelines state all alcohol sales to distributors and to-go alcohol sales will not be included in a business’s 51% calculation.

In Texas, if an establishment makes more than 51% of its gross receipts from alcohol, it is considered a bar. Under Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive orders, bars statewide must remain closed as a precaution to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

William C. Wadsack, Liesbeth Powers, Iain Oldman and Ian Pribanic contributed to this report.
