Valentine’s in Valentine: A Big Bend Brewing Co. and West Texas Tradition

By  | 

Alpine-based independent brewery Big Bend Brewing Co. is once again hosting their annual party, Valentine’s in Valentine on Wednesday, February 14. Welcoming friends and neighbors from across Texas, the company holds the event on the same day each year, celebrating a West Texas tradition. Aptly held in the small town of Valentine, Texas, the event features a limited release beer brewed exclusively for the party by Big Bend, together with fantastic live local music, and the chance to have a good time while benefitting a local initiative.

From 4-10 p.m. on Valentine’s Day, the Old Mercantile Building in Valentine, Texas will be the stage for this wonderful event with a theme this year of “Locals’ Night.” Tickets are now on sale, available at the link provided here, and each year, a portion of proceeds are donated to the town as well as the Valentine Independent School District. This year’s event will feature live musical performances by local bands Beebe & Carrasco, The Doodlin’ Hogwallops, and the Doug Moreland Band.

In a press release about the event, Mahala Guevara, vice president of operations at Big Bend Brewing Co. explained, “The Valentine’s Day party gives folks a glimpse of what makes West Texas so special.” Folks come from neighboring towns, from across the state, and even a handful from around the country to perhaps one of the most inconvenient parties imaginable. But they don’t come to West Texas because it’s easy—they come because it’s exquisitely beautiful, because it still retains the feeling of the frontier, and because it’s a magical place where you can experience a sense of timelessness. The party is a celebration of that West Texas spirit and a de facto community reunion. There’s nowhere on earth many of us would rather be on Valentine’s Day than in Valentine.”
