Inspiration that began in a small blue house on Islla St in Corpus has now grown into one of the coolest independent craft breweries in all of Texas, Islla St. Brewing located at 11911 Crosswinds Way Unit 201 in San Antonio, Texas.

"If one little blue house on 1606 Islla St.in Corpus Christi, Tx could talk it would have some amazing stories to tell. We want to share those stories through our beer. In that house, generations of influential people lived, grew up and had some amazing times. They shaped us in to the people we are now. Oh yeah, did I mention there was also a beautiful garden full of fruits, vegetables and flowers as well,"  Issla St. Brewing offers 

With the mission of Islla St. Brewery to "Always strive to be different and put our passion in to glass," it should come as no surprise that they've discovered the formula for a 'Quintessential Texas' brew, a blend of Big Red and Cerveza, drum roll please...

" Big Rojo."

You heard right, beer and Big Red. Big Rojo,

According to the crafters, " Big Rojo is a subtlety tart Berliner body finished with real Big Red syrup for the iconic sweet smooth finish of the soda that was made for Texas."

Here is the first review straight from Elder Eats of KSAT 12.

 

What started out as a brew for members, when word got out about Big Rojo they knew they needed to offer it publicly. The official public launch is July 22nd. Get to San Antonio and get your BIG ROJO. In the meantime, join the fun by following the Islla Street Brewing Facebook page here.
