well as someone pointed out earlier, they are a distillery, and according to the TABC their establishment doesn't make 51% of their profits from selling booze there. I imagine they make most of it from selling to companies. therefore they aren't required to have the 51% sign, and you're able to carry there if you want. the guy behind the counter clearly didnt know what he was talking about.

While I'm in the autumn of my years, read geezer, I can tell if it's a restaurant that sells more food than booze or a bar.

Honestly, this is a problem for you?
While I can usually tell a bar from a restaurant, I have no faith in TABC being able to do the same. And the problem is that the law makes it illegal to carry where TABC determines to be a 51% location, not where it is a 51% location.

As pointed out by someone else, there are concert venues that get red signs because of the way they are licensed. There are bowling alleys, ice skating rinks, movie theaters, hotels, etc. that get the red sign for the same way.

And all of that is actually determined by what is written on the application, not by the actual percentage of sales. One of my complaints about that has always been that the question on the application asks what percentage of sales is from alcohol, not what percentage is for on-premise consumption. That gets some places where the license allows on and off premise consumption to be determined incorrectly.

One of the benefits of being a recluse is not having to bother with all this 51% confusion.
