A linked articled says it was all due to the Chinese being able to manufacture the steel and containers a bunch cheaper.  The Canadian business went under owing $13 million worth of equipment to other brewers and is defaulting on $18.1 to a Canadian bank.  They were obviously taking other brewer's money knowing they could not meet their promised deliveries of equipment.   One article talked about how the metal manufacturing company was in the process of re-tooling to start making high pressure extraction systems that would extract cannabis oil, and may have jumped in too quick.  Sad.  I liked their beer when in BB. 

I guess beer and weed don't mix.....Or maybe we all aren't drinking and smoking enough.....

If other countries on the planet want to see America suffer and ultimately destroyed, who are they cheering for right now?  Trump, or the leftist democrats and their media supported hate machine?

Be sure to try the micro brewery in Marathon. Personally I like their beer better but I'm not sure where they are on the packaging part.

The friggin' government shut down affecting the park, now the Big Bend Brewing Company is shut down!!!!  What the hell is happening!  This could be the apocalypse and I'd say we should head for the hills boys but the damn trail getting there is probably closed!


I had planned to be out there the last week of February. 
FYI - my favorite was the Terlingua Gold, on tap, from the Starlight.

Pretty sure the Brick Vault is in house sales only. I tried their Porter back in December and really liked it.  :great:

Alas, tonight I am savoring my very last can of IPA from my trip to the Park in December...  :beer_chug: 

Has the BBBC beer all disappeared yet from the shelves in the area stores? Here's hoping they re-establish themselves and crank out great beer again!  :kaos-cactus06:

Still see a lot of the Big Bend beers in stores around the Midland Odessa Area if you really want some!
