“Brunette Bombshell” from Mission-based 5×5 Brewing Co. is now available at seven Rio Grande Valley H-E-B stores. It is the brewery’s first beer to enter the retail market. The Mission EDC, in an announcement, says the release is made possible through an exclusive partnership with L&F Distributors.
As the largest distributing brewery in the area, 5×5 Brewing Co. is one of a number of businesses receiving Mission EDC support over recent years.
“We are extremely proud of the work 5×5 Brewing Co. has done to bring a high-quality product to the Valley market,” said Mission EDC CEO Daniel Silva. “George Rice and his crew have done an amazing job with production and we feel this is just the first step in a series of great things happening for 5×5. We are thankful to have this small business in the city of Mission.”
Brunette Bombshell is available at H-E-B stores as well as select retail chains in the area. Another 5×5 Brewing Co. beer should follow.
“5×5 Brewing Co. is one of the City of Mission’s greatest success stories,” said Silva. “Located here at the Mission CEED, we’ve seen first-hand the incredible amount of work the team has put forth in coming up with new ideas to bring to the RGV. Now the rest of Texas will have the privilege of tasting Mission’s favorite beer.”
As a veteran-owned business, 5×5 Brewing Co. has a veteran-preference hiring policy. Recently, the small business announced a Brewing Apprenticeship Program with South Texas College.
5×5 Brewing Co. operates out of the Mission CEED building, a dedicated space for technology, science and small business initiatives.
