Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission Releases Database of Alcoholic Beverage Products Legal for Sale in State
From the TABC:
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) has completed an on-line database that gives consumers access to a list of what alcoholic beverage products are legal for sale in Texas and those products’ alcohol content. TABC’s Label Approval Database includes all alcoholic beverages that have had labels approved since 2005. Consumers can search the database by permit number, brand name, trade (manufacturer) name, type of product, approval date, or percent alcohol by volume. Each record includes all of this information and an image of the approved label.
The database, which was funded by the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, can play an important role in the prevention of underage drinking, and in adult consumers’ efforts to drink responsibly. A parent or teacher’s ability to view a product’s label and see the alcohol content can help them play a more educated role in monitoring a young person’s activities. Having access to a product’s alcohol content is also beneficial if an adult consumer knows how to use it to determine responsible consumption measures.
