The Alamo Golden Ale's motto is "Brewed with a fiercely independent spirit," and that's what it took, almost literally, for Eugene Simor to see the groundbreaking on his near-Eastside brewery.
The location is symbolic. Alamo Golden Ale, along with German lagers and seasonal selections, will be brewed about 12 minutes from the site of the sacred grounds of the Alamo.
"For the last 10 years I've brewed just one single product, which is Alamo Golden Ale," Simor said. "So considering that I just have one beer, we've actually done pretty good with our sales."
