SHERMAN, TX---- The microbrewery business in Texas could be about to take off. Governor Rick Perry signed a new law last Friday that's expected to help breweries across the state. The law allows them to sell beer on their premises.

Before this law, visitors would have to pay for a tour of the brewery and could only sample beer, but thanks to the unanimous support of the Texas House and Senate, this law went into effect immediately on Friday.

Owners of 903 Brewers in Sherman said the new law is going to boost business and allow them to expand faster. To celebrate the new law, the brewery opened the tasting room tonight from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The brewery's regular hours are Thursday nights from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday afternoons from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
