Brewery weighs in on new law allowing beer-to-go sales

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Breweries across the state are celebrating a new bill signed into law by Gov. Abbott.

It will allow them to finally sell "beer to go," as Texas was previously the only state to not allow it. 

JC Lopez, one of the managers at Two Docs, a local brewery in Lubbock, said the brewery had to turn away customers every day when they asked for beer to go.

"For local communities, its been hard to get our beers out there whenever we have some troubles trying to sell some of our beers to our customers," Lopez said.

With the passage of House Bill 1545, Lopez said this now levels the playing field for small business breweries like Two Docs. 

"It's just going to really take local breweries to the next level and help them compete into the market," Lopez said.

He added this law opens new doors for brand recognition in the marketplace, and this victory is not just for breweries, but for small businesses everywhere. 

"Everyone supports local. The whole Lubbock community supports a lot of local places, and with breweries trying to open up in Lubbock, it's just going to give us an extra boost in market recognition and getting our name out there," Lopez said.

Customers will be able to go into breweries like Two Docs and order beer to go, starting Sept. 1.
