TABC Online Product Database

AUSTIN - The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) has made its full label approval database available online to the public.

The move to make this information public is part of TABC's increasing transparancy effort and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. They state that a "parent or teacher's ability to view a product's label and see the alcohol content can help them play a more educated role in monitoring a young person's activities."

Consumers can search the database by permit number, brand name, manufacturer, type of product, approval date or percent alcohol by volume, with each record including a graphic image of the approved label.
