AUSTIN, Texas -

Monday, the Senate passed a bill 31-to-0 that will allow brewpubs to sell their products in stores.

Brewpubs can currently only bottle their beer in a growler, but the bill would allow them to sell six packs to customers.

State Rep. Susan King, R-Abilene, co-authored the companion House bill. She said she believes the bill will help small business in her district.
