I would like to drink beer in my car in Texas.

I lived in Texas from '04-09 and it was never legal anywhere in the state to drink or even open any alcoholic beverages in a moving vehicle.

It is illegal to drink alcohol in a car while driving. This is in part considered against the law to have an open container of alcohol while a car is in operation.

No, it is not legal. It is illegal to have an open container of any kind of alcohol in your car in Texas. This is called the "Open Container Law". It is illegal whether it is a can, a bottle, or even a cup of beer. The intent is to prevent drunken driving.
