  H.R. No. 1443
         WHEREAS, Locally owned and operated businesses contribute to
  the character and vitality of their communities, and Oil Horse
  Brewing Co. in Longview, which recently celebrated its fifth year
  of operation, is one such enterprise; and
         WHEREAS, John Oglesbee first began brewing his gluten-free
  beer as a hobby after learning he had a form of gluten intolerance;
  he established Oil Horse Brewing Co. in 2016 and sold out of his
  product in a single day; inspired by local history, he serves a
  variety of brews with namesakes such as the Big Inch pipeline that
  runs eastward from Longview, the city's founder, Ossamus Hitch
  Methvin, and the loblolly pines that populate the region; and
         WHEREAS, Since its inception, Oil Horse Brewing Co. has
  expanded its operation to include canning and outside sales
  distribution across East Texas, while the taproom remains a popular
  gathering spot for customers; the brewery celebrated its fifth
  anniversary on May 8, 2021, with a block party featuring live music,
  food trucks, cornhole, and other activities; and
         WHEREAS, The well-being of Texas depends on a vibrant,
  diversified economy, and independent businesses deeply rooted in
  their communities are to be commended for strengthening the
  prosperity of the Lone Star State; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 87th Texas
  Legislature hereby commemorate the fifth anniversary of Oil Horse
  Brewing Co. and extend to John Oglesbee and his staff sincere best
  wishes for continued success; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
  prepared for Mr. Oglesbee as an expression of high regard by the
  Texas House of Representatives.
  Speaker of the House     
         I certify that H.R. No. 1443 was adopted by the House on May
  26, 2021, by a non-record vote.
