Scottish brewer BrewDog announced plans this week to open a new bar that straddles the border between the United States and Mexico.
The spot, dubbed The Bar of the Edge, will be in a "top secret" location, with one half in Texas and the other in Chihuahua, Mexico. The phrase "Make Beer Not Walls" will be painted on the outside of the proposed building.
"The Bar on the Edge will be set up in the furthest outskirts of the United States, reflecting our ambition to reach every corner of the country as we begin to brew our beers on US soil.," BrewDog co-founder James Watt said in a press release. "Beer has always been a unifying factor between cultures – and our business was born from collaboration and an inclusive approach – so we thought it would be fun to place the bar a few feet further to actually cross the US-Mexico border too.
“We will request official permission from the local authorities to put it there and adhere to any red tape stuff, but I guess it would make it more difficult to build a wall if there’s a BrewDog bar in the way. We’re planning on putting the bar there anyway until someone tells us to move it.”
BrewDog started in Scotland but opened a brewery near Columbus, Ohio, earlier this year.
