San Antonio – The day has finally come for Alamo Beer Company. Alamo Beer Company was established in 2003 by founder Eugene Simor in San Antonio. Eugene started the company by working out a contract brewing deal with Real Ale Brewing Company in Blanco where the beer has been brewed until now. This weekend, Alamo Beer Company’s brewery has finally been built and it will open to the public starting Friday March 6th which will also commemorate the 179th anniversary of the fall of the Alamo. To celebrate the grand opening of the brewery, a cannon will be fired and the first keg will be tapped at noon which will kick off the opening celebrations. Along with the new brewery opening to the public, Alamo will be serving and showing off their new beers an Amber, Pilsner and a German Pale Ale. Above is a list of the events going on at the brewery this weekend to celebrate this momentous arrival. Best of luck to Eugene and his crew and wishing continued success.


Dallas- The long awaited Braindead Brewing Company opened its doors this weekend in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas. Braindead Brewing is the creation of Sam Wynne, Andrew Huerter and Jeff Fryman with Chef David Peña running the kitchen. With the brewpub now fully open, the kitchen is cranking out a full menu for lunch and dinner with a late night menu after 10pm, while head brewer Andrew Huerter will be keeping a handful of house beers on tap along with many other local and regional favorites on the guest taps. Currently, their house beers are not available just yet but be sure to check them out next time you are in Dallas.
