Celebrate Texas Independence with an Independence Pale Ale!

On this day in 1836, representatives of the Texas settlements met in the small town of Washington on the banks of the Brazos river to declare their independence from Mexico and sign the Texas Declaration of Independence.

This flag (created by Captain William Scott in 1835 and used by those Texans who favoured independence from Mexico) was actually the inspiration for the name and logo of Independence Brewing and a replica of it proudly hangs in the brewery. So, what better way to celebrate Texas declaring its independence then with a beer from Independence Brewing! Available at many stores, bars and restaurants in Austin and San Antonio and at most Spec's locations in Houston.
