It's these stupid laws that have created 30bbl distribution only breweries like Thirsty Planet with only 2 60bbl fermentors. They can only release a very select few beers a year. It was quite an eye opening experience for me since I live in Colorado where you can serve on site and distribute from the same location.
I spoke with a gentleman(I believe he was the owner) at the Whip-In in Austin this summer. He felt that the distributors in Texas were like the mafia. He didn't seem very hopeful that the distribution/sell on sight laws would change because the distributors have too much power and too much to lose.
Oh, I signed it as well. You're up to 9.
