The pair have opened the doors on a new Big Hops taproom franchise in the small town, the chain's first location outside of San Antonio proper.
The 2188 Texas Highway 46 location held a soft opening over the weekend, and is now welcoming guests to the same rotating draft system, beer-focused events and brewpub-style fare familiar to Big Hops regulars.
Thomson is the influencer and military veteran behind local social media marketing presence SATXRated. The New Braunfels Big Hops is the first franchise venture for both Thomson and Paredes.
The new spot will be open Monday through Thursday from 3-10 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from noon to 10 p.m. According to social media posts, the suds factory plans to hold a grand opening party Dec. 4.
