The Alamo Beer Company roared back to life with a celebratory cannon firing and keg tapping ceremony earlier this year, marking the moment that the iconic beer brand returned to Alamo City…
As part of the landmark event, Alamo Beer expanded its product line, introducing three new craft beers to the public to complement the company’s signature Golden Ale. The company also debuted the Alamo Pilsner, Alamo German Pale Ale and Alamo Amber Lager.
The latter beer was created as an homage to the original Alamo Beer produced by a different company in San Antonio at the turn of the 20th Century. The beer disappeared at the beginning of Prohibition in 1919.
The roughly $8 million brewery complex at 202 Lamar Street is situated near the historic Hays Street bridge, immediately east of Interstate 37.
Brewmaste Eugene Simor expects to produce between 6,000 and 10,000 barrels of beer annually at the new brewery — more than twice its previous volume.
The internal workings of the new facility have been designed to emulate German breweries, with large onion domes on the kettles and flat-winged lids on the brewing vessel. Other unique innovations in the facility include a gleaming, traditional style copper wort grant as well as pitch tanks and 12 single-wall lagering tanks.
As part of the construction project 8,000 sq ft of Flowcrete’s robust cementitious polyurethane flooring system Flowfresh HF was installed across the site to provide a floor able to withstand the heavy equipment, heat, foot traffic and the inevitable spillages of beer, liquids and brewing by-products for the long term.
