Just shy of a year after first expanding its distribution footprint to include areas around Austin, Big Bend Brewing Company of Alpine is now ready to launch its West Texas-inspired brand of beer here in North Texas.

Beginning the week of May 9, FullClip Craft Distributors will begin deliveries of Big Bend brews to draft accounts around the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Initial shipments will be limited to kegs, with packaged products arriving on retail shelves around mid-June.

Tejas Lager, the brewery's flagship beer, as well as other year-round and seasonal selections will be available locally.

Once on the market, consumers can expect to find all five of Big Bend's year-round offerings, including Tejas Lager, Big Bend Hefeweizen, La Frontera IPA, Number 22 Porter and Terlingua Golden Ale, as well as the brewery's latest seasonal, Balmorhea Imperial Berliner Weisse.

To help introduce Big Bend to North Texas, brewery representatives will be on hand for a series of official kick-off events, the first of which will be held on Thursday, May 12. Details on that and other festivities to follow are provided below.
