The sale of mixed beverages is legal in San Marcos and some other districts. In accordance with the permitted sales and consumption hours of alcohol, as set out in chapter 105 of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code, bars close at midnight Monday through Friday and Saturday at 1 in the morning. A wine-only package store that has a beer license cannot sell wine that contains more than 17 percent alcohol by volume on a Sunday or after 10 p.m. any day.
In addition to any other period during which the sale of alcohol is authorized, a licensed or permitted venue located at a festival, fair or concert may sell alcoholic beverages between 10 a.m. and noon on Sunday in Texas, according to the TABC. People who visit and live in Hays County will be able to stay out late and drink past midnight starting now. The Hays County Commissioner's Court on Tuesday approved an order allowing restaurants and bars with alcohol licenses to sell mixed beverages, wine and beer until 2 a.m.
