Craft brewers, beer distributors close to deal on proposed changes in Austin

There's apparently movement in Austin to allow craft brewers more freedom to distribute and sell their specialty suds to consumers.

The Texas Tribune reports that brewers and big beer distributors reached a compromise on proposed changes to the state's alcoholic beverage code. Details are being held under wraps until official language is worked out later this week.

According to the Tribune, Sen. Kevin Eltife, R-Tyler, filed bills last month "that would allow brewpubs to self-distribute to retailers and to sell directly to customers on their premises," but big wholesale distributors opposed it.

More to come.
