Texas Package Stores Association 72nd Annual Convention & Trade Show

July 13 - 15

Dallas, TX


2-2019 TPSA Convention


Texas Package Stores Association

Greetings from TPSA President Austin Keith

Welcome to the 72nd Annual Texas Package Stores Association Convention & Trade Show! On behalf of the Executive Committee, Board of Directors and our members, we welcome you to Dallas. The Texas Package Stores Association once again had an incredibly successful legislative session. The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission was under sunset review this year, which meant the legislature reviewed their processes and agency efficiency to ensure the industry and public’s interest were being met. Sunset sessions always put the focus on the industry, and 2019 was no different. The sunset bill is always a dangerous proposition. The bill is germane to any and all alcohol related amendments, including Sunday sales and allowing companies like Walmart to sell liquor. Getting the bill out of the House and the Senate in a format that was acceptable to the majority is always difficult to manage. TPSA fought to the end to do the best that it could for the package store industry and kept some very bad language out of the bill. Beyond the Sunset process, the theme this legislative session seemed to be legislation intent on tearing down the threetiered system. More bills were filed this session than any before, to allow more direct sales to consumers from breweries, wineries and distilleries. We need to do a better job as an industry to educate our customers on the importance of keeping and maintaining a strong three-tiered system. We have many legislative challenges ahead including the fight against Walmart in our pending lawsuit. It has never been more imperative that package store owners across Texas join our efforts to help protect the very backbone of the Texas economy, the small business owner. The Texas Package Stores Association cannot remain a leader on alcohol-related issues without the grassroots participation of our members. I want to encourage each one of you to get involved. I know we are all busy with our businesses and our lives, but if every member could take time and devote it to something that involves our industry, imagine the things we could get done not just locally but statewide. I want to thank the many wholesalers, suppliers and representatives who support TPSA as an Associate Member and as hosts of various convention functions. Much of our success is due to their continued support. Again, welcome to the 2019 Convention & Trade Show. It is my honor and privilege to serve all of you as TPSA president. I look forward to creating new relationships, strengthening existing ties and recognizing individuals who have contributed to our success. TPSA is committed to promoting our motto “we support those who support us!“

Kevin J. Lilly Presiding Officer – Houston Ida Clement Steen Member – San Antonio Commission Member Vacant A. Bentley Nettles Executive Director

August 12, 2018 Dear Texas Package Store Association Member: Welcome to Houston! As many of you have no doubt heard, 2018 has been a time of positive transition for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. For the last year, TABC has taken steps to improve the relationship between the agency and the alcoholic beverage industry we’re charged with regulating, whether it’s through increased training and education opportunities or how we deal with administrative violations. TABC recognizes the critical role TPSA and the industry plays in enhancing Texas’ economy. For that reason, we’re taking steps to ensure Package Store permit applicants – as well as other applicants within the industry – have the tools and knowledge they need to get into business quickly while maintaining compliance with the laws put in place by our state Legislature. Further, as many of you know, TABC is currently under review by the Texas Sunset Commission. This means the agency’s structure, policies, and practices could see significant changes during the 2019 legislative session along with the Alcoholic Beverage Code itself. Your input is vital during this process. Any ideas or suggestions you have are most appreciated, and will help ensure that TABC emerges from the Sunset process equipped to regulate fairly and efficiently. On behalf of the leadership and employees of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, I’d like to thank each of you for your entrepreneurship, determination, and dedication to growing your business and the economy. It’s my hope that we can continue to work together in support of this great state. Sincerely,

A. Bentley Nettles TABC Executive Director

It requires Mexico’s finest 100% Weber Blue Agave, hand-selected and distilled in custom copper stills for a smooth finish every time. We didn’t invent tequila,

Since then, Bird Dog has defined the flavored whiskey category by releasing the best tasting and higher proofed flavors that the industry has seen. Made with the finest Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey and natural flavors, Bird Dog is available in Blackberry, Peach, Apple, Black Cherry, Praline, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Strawberry, Chocolate, Jalapeno Honey and others. While earning top honors/awards in both industry and consumer based competitions, Bird Dog Whiskey has become the Most Awarded Flavored Whiskey.

Our Bourbons live up to the same standard and enjoy a linked heritage with the prestigious Calumet Farm. Calumet Farm Single Rack Black Bourbon Whiskey represents both the prestigious nature and hard-earned quality of a premium Kentucky bourbon. It is painstakingly crafted from an extremely small batch of 19 barrels. All barrels used are aged in a single, center cut rack from the ideal maturation location and conditions inside the rick house. This expression of the Calumet Farm Bourbon family is available as a 92 proof 10-year old and 94 proof 12-year old.

• The new batches of Sam Houston were crafted from a rare, premium bourbon reserve. The bourbon was aged for a minimum of 12 years and was held to the highest scrutiny for quality, flavor and complexity. Each barrel was handchosen, and the current release has been crafted in extremely small batches, using only 3 barrels at a time. Bottled at 98 proof, each bottle is individually hand-labeled with specific aging notes and numbered. The latest release (No. 2) of Sam Houston 12 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey was curated under the watchful eyes of Steve Nally, John Hargrove and the team at Bardstown Bourbon Company.
