Big Bend Brewing Company

It's no secret that Donna and I -- especially Donna -- enjoy a good brew. So during our stay in Alpine, we decided to tour the Big Bend Brewing Company.

Outside of the brewery on the western edge of Alpine.

We took the tour of the plant, which is offered Wednesday - Friday at 3:00 PM and on Saturdays at 1:00 and 3:00 PM. The tasting room is also open those same times on those days. The tour is very brief, and costs $10. But with the tour, you get to sample each of the brewery's 6 beers and then you receive a pint glass full of any brew. You get to keep the pint glass. Not a bad deal at all.

The tasting room
The web site lists only 5 brews; however, the brewery has recently introduced a new beer. I'm not a beer connoisseur, so I can't really describe the beers for you.

From information provided during the tour, it seems that Big Bend Brewing is expanding. Production was ramped up during our visit. Our guide mentioned during the tour that this is the most remote brewery in the U.S.
