Governor Abbott signs ‘Beer-to-Go’ bill

AUSTIN, TX (NBC) - Beer lovers in the Lone Star State have reason to crack open a cold one and celebrate.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill on Saturday that allows craft breweries to sell beer to go.

Smaller brewpubs can already do it; however, with this new law, breweries will have the same right.

The governor held a signing ceremony at the Austin Beerworks Brewery in north Austin.

Abbott ended with a message to Texans reminding folks to drink responsibly.
