Did you know that in Texas wineries have been able to legally ship to consumers, including those out of state, since 2005? Did you also know that in Texas craft breweries can't?

Now a new law in Texas was filed that will propose to legalize direct consumer shipping and delivery from Texas breweries. Meaning, that craft beer you love so much could be delivered straight to you in your home. And Texas actor Jensen Ackles is leading the way on this legislation!

You know who Ackles is, he played Dean Winchester for over 15 years on the hit series "Supernatural"- and most recently he played Soldier Boy on "The Boys". He's not only a great actor, but this Texan also has a heart as big as Texas.

In an Instagram post, Ackles, who owns his own brewery in the Texas Hill Country, sounded off on the new beer legislation, urging his followers and lovers of craft beer to sign the petition.

The petition, which you can find here, details HB 2003/SB 752, where legislators could make the "Beer-To-You" bill a reality where it will be able to:

  • Allow Texas breweries and brewpubs to deliver beer directly to consumers’ homes
  • Allow Texas breweries and brewpubs to utilize third party delivery services to deliver beer to consumers’ homes
  • Allow breweries and brewpubs to ship beer directly to consumers across the state through licensed private carriers

If "Alcohol-to-Go" was able to become a permanent fixture in the Lone Star State, I don't see why "Beer-To-You" can't also become a reality. You can sign the petition here.
