Best Way to Avoid the TABC Altogether (2009)

Homebrew Headquarters

We used to think TABC stood for Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, but now we're starting to wonder if it really means Thugs Against Beer Consumption. The state's insanely complex alcohol code favors big-business distributors at the expense of craft breweries—which is why the country's thirstiest beer-drinking state has so few of them. Thanks to Homebrew Headquarters, you don't have to get the approval of those jackbooted goons (yet) to brew your own. You can get anything from a barebones starter kit to an ounce of Cascade whole hops to a Wortchiller Counterflow. Best of all, the staff is patient with foam rangers of all experience levels and tastes and won't belittle you if you don't know a hop from a malt or want to brew up some light lager.
