Beer castle?

Sort of unclear on what exactly I'm looking at here. Brewery? Museum? Outfitter? Apparently yes?

What I learned:

Live somewhere for 1 year and you are a local.  Sounds like an "Austinite"

"Anything you take to the desert that you call beer is rare"    :eusa_think:   I must agree with him. For me,  it almost always happens around camp in the late evening.  But fortunately, after going to the store the next morning, not so rare.

" They see it as evolving into a commercial venture, a sort of travel agency (“but less lame,” Drewry says) where adventure seekers and beer lovers could come to stage paddle trips or hiking excursions, and create art or music, all against that prickly West Texas backdrop."  Unfortunately the NPS has already corned the market on his dream.  But I must agree, they are lame.

The best quote  "I really want to pimp Big Bend out in the best way."   A Big Bend Chicken Ranch!  I sure hope this guy succeeds!

This article is exactly why the American Statesman is doing so well.  Good stuff for a Friday afternoon.  Thanks for sharing.

The older I get, the more I realize what freedom really means.  May God bless America

This one was pretty interesting too. Is this guy a supporter? Hard to tell.
“Tony has had a lot of ideas that don’t make sense to anybody but him,” Pond says. “He kind of does what he wants to do, and it seems to benefit a lot of other people.”

It will certainly be a castle to something.
