House Bill 3287 was enacted in the State of Texas on June 15, 2017 and has caused a significant stir in the craft beer community.

The bill requires all Texan based breweries who produce 225,000 barrels (5805718.09 gallons) of beer annually to pay a distributor to deliver their beer, even if it's to a taproom in the same facility.

Between multiple polls, public debates and the sweeping legislative changes seeing states increasingly accept medicinal and/or recreational marijuana use, it's clear that the United States of America is increasingly "green" friendly.
