Texas Legislative Briefing on Tap at Brew Talks Austin


Brewbound will travel to Austin, TX next Tuesday, Oct. 21 to host Brew Talks, an educational and networking meetup for beer industry professionals.

The event, which will be hosted at the offices of popular entertainment website The Chive, will feature two unique conversations on beverage entrepreneurism and legislative issues impacting craft brewers.

Brewbound’s Dave Eisenberg will sit down with a trio of local industry members to discuss some of the specific issues Texas-based craft brewers are dealing with. Joining that discussion will be Jester King managing partner Ron Extract, Independence Brewing co-founder Amy Cartwright and Texas Craft Brewers Guild executive director, Charles Vallhonrat.

Throughout the conversation, the group will discuss Texas’ territorial distribution rights, the relationship between Texas brewers and distributors, and broader franchise law carve-outs for craft producers.

A second presentation on the lessons on an entrepreneur will feature Deep Eddy Vodka founder, Clayton Christopher. During his talk, Christopher will explain his journey and expound on the key decisions that lead to a startup’s success. Following his talk, Christopher will engage in moderated question-and-answer session with the audience and with Brewbound editor, Chris Furnari.
