Thanks for visiting our website! We are Steve and Bertha Padilla, owners of Big River Brewery. Our interest in craft beer developed from visiting different microbreweries during our travels. We were amazed that a variety of beer styles could be made with just a few simple ingredients. Drawn to the science behind the brewing process, Steve began to experiment with different recipes as a home brewer. His passion for brewing grew over the years and eventually led to the inspiration for opening a microbrewery in the Rio Grande Valley.
Our goal is to consistently produce great tasting beer using our state of the art brewery equipment and quality ingredients. Whether you’re a seasoned craft beer drinker or new comer, we have a beer for you. If you’re curious about the brewery or interested in a private tour of the facility, just drop us a line.
