Saint Arnold needs your help

This is from the newsletter of the Saint Arnold brewery in Houston, which was sent out yesterday:


The Texas Legislature is in their biannual session right now which means if we want any changes to the laws, now is the time to act, and fast! We are looking for anybody that has any connections with any of our state legislatures. Perhaps you work for one, or your wife or husband does, or you have beers with one, or perhaps you have a compromising picture of one with a goat. If you do have any such connections and you would be willing to introduce us, please let us know. The specific law that we would like to see changed is to allow small breweries to have dock sales (the ability to sell packaged beer to go at the brewery). Texas wineries can do it, but breweries cannot. This would especially help with kegs.

I presume if this describes you, the best thing to do would be to call them at 713 686 9494. As a patriotic and loyal Saint Arnold's drinker, I can assure you that you'd be doing your country a service.

Oh, and I just discovered that their newsletter archive has an RSS feed, so if I don't check my Yahoo mail for a month (cough cough), I won't be in danger of missing stuff like this in the future.

UPDATE: I see that PerryVsWorld is on their mailing list, too.

Whew! It's about beer.

When I first saw your headline, I thought you had completely lost it and were recruiting assistance for the California governor.

Carry on.
