(Austin, TX) – Remember a while back when news broke that Jester King and two other companies were suing the Texas ABC on First Amendment violation grounds? We have judgment…courtesy of Freetail Brewing Founder and CEO, Scott Metzger’s blog:
What does this mean in layman’s terms? 3 things:
TABC cannot prohibit you from telling customers or advertising where they can buy your products
TABC cannot require you to label your products by their definition of “beer” and “ale”
TABC cannot prohibit you from advertising the strength of your products by prohibiting words like “strong”, “prewar strength”, “full strength”, etc
More background on the case here.
Metzger says there will be more updates today at his blog >> Brewed and Never Battered.
Follow his updates on Twitter, too.
Oh, and the full 37-page judgment so you can read it for yourselves…
Here's a link to judgement for those of you who refuse to bathe in the awesomeness of my blog (where there is a link). http://t.co/SzbqY4oc
