Restaurant Works with Texas Legislature to Legalize Self-Serve Beer


After working with the state legislature to change the law to allow self-serve beer, Crave Hot Dogs and BBQ's new location in Summerwood, Texas, will feature a self-service beer wall when it opens later this month.  

When working to open its Spring, Texas, location, Crave worked with the state of Texas to legalize self-serve beer. It was a great accomplishment for the restaurant, and is definitely paying off. The law went into effect the first day the Crave restaurant opened on July 4.

“We feature a self-serve beer wall in our locations with anywhere from 18-32 taps. Most of the offerings are local craft beer and some domestics. There is always a white a red wine option available as well,” said Jake Moran, Director of Operations and training for Crave Hot Dogs and BBQ.

Customers have the option to download the app where they can order ahead, receive delivery, earn loyalty points, rewards and more. Catering is also offered in various forms depending on the customers’ needs and type of venue they are having.

"We want our customers to have many options and be able to meet all of their needs to be the restaurant of choice," added Moran. "The customers will have the option of our current domestic local craft and IPA selections, the restaurant also takes suggestions from locals on what they want to see, and hosts Tap Takovers where they sample beer to the customers.”

Since opening in July 2019, Crave is planning additional locations in the Lone Star state;  Pflugerville is on track to open in May and Dallas is in the works.
