Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code § 102.14 Manufacturer Or Distributor: Furnishing Equipment Or Fixtures

Sec. 102.14. MANUFACTURER OR DISTRIBUTOR: FURNISHING EQUIPMENT OR FIXTURES. (a) No manufacturer or distributor directly or indirectly, or through a subsidiary, affiliate, agent, employee, officer, director, or firm member, may furnish, give, rent, lend, or sell any equipment, fixtures, or supplies to a person engaged in selling brewery products for on-premises consumption.

(b) This section does not apply to equipment, fixtures, or supplies furnished, given, loaned, rented, or sold before November 16, 1935, except that transactions made before that date may not be used as consideration for an agreement made after that date with respect to the purchase of brewery products. If a manufacturer or distributor of brewery products or an agent or employee of one of them removes the equipment, fixtures, or supplies from the premises of the person to whom they were furnished, given, loaned, rented, or sold, the exemption granted by this subsection no longer applies to the equipment, fixtures, or supplies.

(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of this code, a manufacturer or distributor may, with written approval of the administrator, sell for cash devices designed to extract brewery products from legal containers subject to the following conditions:

(1) the legal containers must not exceed a one-eighth barrel capacity and must not be reused or refilled;

(2) the selling price of such devices may be no less than the cost of acquisition to the manufacturer or distributor; and

(3) such devices which extract brewery products from legal containers covered by this section may not be furnished, given, rented, or sold by the manufacturer or distributor to a licensee or permittee authorized to sell or serve brewery products for on-premise consumption, or to the ultimate consumer.
