We want to reach out to a bar in EVERY Texas House & Senate district to spread the word of who we are, what we're doing and how people can help! So, what are your favorite bars (or craft-friendly restaurants!). it's important that legislators know that beer reform issues are important to business owners & constituents! So, what are your favorite bars?!
