Big Rojo originally started out as a beer for brewery members but someone shared it on social media and the idea skyrocketed.

“We’ve had 26 states reach out to us,” head brewer Joaquin Pena told KSAT’s David Elder.

A post from the brewery said as production ramps up there will be larger package sizes available in bigger limits at a lower price point. The offering that sold out today was two 16-ounce cans for $18.

“We are working hard to bring larger amounts of this to you soon and with several partners to move this beer into different areas, we will update everyone as the ball moves,” according to a Facebook post.

The brewery is located at 11911 Crosswinds Way in San Antonio.

Now the real question is.... who’s got the barbacoa tacos to go with it?
