PEARLAND, Texas – Beer for life is one of the perks a Pearland brewery is offering in a promotion designed to pay for its upgrades after a near-fire last week.

Bakfish Brewing Company officials said in a Facebook post that its current design began malfunctioning, and after repeated attempts to fix it, it began smoking and nearly caught fire.

Instead of a costly fix to the current system, the brewery company said it has decided to move forward with a likewise costly overhaul to its taproom.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src = ''; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

A LETTER FROM OUR CO-OWNER. Membership is priced at a one-time charge of $1000. This is a lifetime membership. Enjoy...
