Lawmakers passed the legislation at the urging of one of the most powerful lobby groups at the Capitol — the wholesale beer distributors — which prosper from regulations that generally require beer makers to use their delivery services. The company is still evaluating how much it will affect its bottom line. Now craft brewers are doing a full-court press — in social media and direct appeals that have garnered thousands of signatures — for a gubernatorial veto. The governor has until June 18 to sign or veto the bill. Otherwise it will take effect without his signature. Texas also requires that retailers pay beer distributors in cash for their deliveries. And beyond the tight beer regulations, Texas has a uniquely bizarre liquor law that prevents publicly traded companies from selling spirits — thereby favoring politically powerful package stores and their blood relatives in maintaining the exclusive rights to sell hard liquor.

Link Vonu Pure Lager is marketed in Fiji as a premium hand-crafted beer. Coca-Cola Amatil is betting that Australia’s love affair with sun-soaked Fiji will extend to the island nation’s beer, after it bought Vonu Beer with the aim of turning the Fijian premium craft lager into a regional export winner. Created by two local entrepreneurs in Fiji, Vonu Pure Lager has been distributed across the island for a few years and is marketed as a premium hand-crafted beer sold under the slogan ”Pure Fiji rainwater turned into beer”.
