Republic Beverage for wine and spirits

local distributors for beer. Silver Eagle for AB products, Houston Distributing Co for Miller, etc...

In Texas they must purchase alcohol (wine and beer)from distributors due to the "three tier system" set up by the TABC. Technically, liquor must be purchased from a "fourth tier" dubbed "Class B Wholesalers" (Spec's is one of these).
Some names of Texas distributors:
Glazer's
Republic National
Prestige
Horizon
Ambiente
Avante
Pioneer
Serendipity
MexCor

Beer distribution is done regionally. For example, there's an Anheuser-Busch distributor in Austin and Houston and San Antonio and DFW etc.


Hope that helps.

How much cheaper is it for a bar to buy a bottle of Crown than it is for a person buying it from specs? Just curious.

If I had a bar, I can stack my inventory using these distributors? Are there any one stop distributors? How much of a difference is it compared to specs? How much markup is that specs?

Each distributor represents different suppliers. Spec's Class B Wholesale division sells to bars and restaurants at a discount (less than a customer walking into their store).
