Texas residents love their beer. At one time, most people chose to consume big-name brands such as Budweiser, Miller, or Pabst Blue Ribbon. However, craft beers are gaining popularity across the country.
If you an aspiring entrepreneur, you may find the idea of opening a microbrewery appealing. When they are successful, these small breweries are profitable.
