Big Bend Brewing Company suspends operations in Alpine
« on: December 21, 2018, 08:05:38 PM »
Sad to see this posted on Big Bend Brewing Company Instagram and Facebook pages a few hours ago:

With heavy hearts, we announce that Big Bend Brewing Co. will suspend operations, including taproom sales in the Alpine facility, effective December 31, 2018.

Big Bend Brewing has always been a passion project for us. We wanted to create beer and a brewery that all Texans (and Americans) could be proud of. We've worked hard to share this dream with of with all of you during our 6 years of operations. We've had some tremendous successes: we won the Gold medal in the World Beer Cup for our National Park Hefeweizen (among 30 other medals in 2018!), we've built an amazing team, we've made delicious beer and shared it with wonderful people, and we've worked with some of the best partners in the business. We're proud of what we have built, and what we have accomplished.

However, throughout our time in business, we've also faced some very difficult headwinds. Some of them are well known to our loyal supporters, and others are new. Now, due to a combination of unforeseen hurdles in building our San Antonio location and the challenging macroeconomic conditions affecting investment in the craft beer sector, we find ourselves facing some tough choices.

We had high aspirations and lofty goals, and we did everything we could to achieve them. We want to thank everyone for all the tremendous support over the past 6 years. We remain hopeful and are working hard to make the stoppage temporary. The goal is to come back better than ever. We are no stranger to adversity— forging a craft beer brand in the rugged frontier of West Texas is no easy task. While we work through our difficulties, we humbly ask you to show your support for our beer, our brands, our retailer and wholesaler partners, and our company's future in general by sharing a Big Bend beer with your friends.

Please look for two very special bottle releases coming out soon, one in January and one on Valentine's Day.

At least they are not going out of business, just closing the Alpine location.  At least that is what it reads like.
temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water

Found that St. Arnold's Art Car IPA is a decently close approximation to La Frontera...  :icon_wink:
