Booze A La Cart: Suggestions for BYOB’ing at Austin trailers
Mmm…look at the bold, beautiful brisket from J Mueller BBQ on South First Street. What could make it better, you ask?
Well, the right booze, of course. 
We share our suggestions for BYOB’ing at Austin’s many fine food trailers.

Beer can now be called beer in Texas.
Yes, really.
U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks Monday ruled in favor of Jester King Brewery, Authentic Beverage Co. and Zax Restaurant and Bar in a First Amendment claim against the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
The ruling now allows breweries to tell customers where they can purchase their product, since they can’t be legally sold at the brewery. Also, previously, beer that was above four percent alcohol by volume had to be labeled “malt liquor” or “ale,” and now it can be labeled “beer” or “ale” regardless of alcohol content.
I wish we were joking, but we’re not.

You can’t buy locally-made brewpub-made beer in Texas grocery stores. The brewpubs want to change that. Would it “save Texas?” Well, that’s what the pint glass says, and why would beer lie to us?

The sign on the building says: “Community Owned Beer.” What more needs to be said?! ;)
