    I have had problems with fruit flies in the beer but never crickets. From their website:

    Great find!

    Glad the article stated he was there with his wife and kids. Would have been a horrible way to be outed to the national media if he was a closeted part of the LGBT community.

    A GODDAMN HERO right here BA's!!

    Heard some of the interview with him this morning.
    Instincts and training kicked in as he helped to save dozens of people who were just out trying to have fun from this inhuman and disturbed monster.

    Shirts being ordered. I like the designs. Too bad I can’t get beer from them.

    Enjoy

    What a strange comment. Pretty sure going to a drag show has no bearing on who you are or your sexual choices one way or the other.

    Outed!?, he was likely more concerned about being Offed.

    Many people from the LGBT community have married partners and children.

    No one said it did. Please stop projecting your anti-LGBT thoughts on my comment, Lauren Boebert. Not everyone at LGBT bars is out. I’m simply saying it’s a good thing that he wasn’t someone in the closet since they plastered his name on national media.

    Stinks when the every-man doing the right thing day in and day out is revealed to us all in times like these. I'd rather make sure this gentleman is taken care of for the remainder of his time on this rock rather than the person who brought him to light who we'll be taking care of instead.
    Glad this was posted this brewery deserves the bump. :beers:

    The “alleged” shooter was in court today and his face looked beat up! Just another reason to say thank you to Richard Fierro.

    Sad situation. At least we can feel good about the brewery owner aspect of the story.
    I'm dating myself but that exact model of El Camino in all the brewery and media interview stories was the first car I ever bought brand new. I know, I know, El Camino, I have since moved on so many years later. After all, I drank Budweiser back then.

    And again this is still a strange comment.
    Not everyone at LGBT bars is in the closet either, obviously.
    It just sounds like a very strange view considering, in the moment, he was probably more worried about being killed and protecting his family and others than what people would think of why he was at Club Q.

    Some people in an LGBT-friendly location might be straight -- possibly an employee, or accompanying a group of friends, or having gone solo to enjoy the scene. In the 70s a friend and I went to Tug/s Tavern on Mission Boulevard in Pacific Beach, CA for taquitos, but bailed out after eating because of the crowd and noise. We stopped into a very quiet place across the street for a beer. My fellow carouser looked around at the ladies present and determined that we were probably out of our element. (I was slow on the uptake.) We left after a quick beer.

    Do they sell bottles/cans/crowlers? Maybe we can work with someone local to acquire and ship to those interested in trying some of their beers.

    Not sure if this link will work but they posted on their Facebook about the huge support they have gotten with merch orders.

    Yeah, when good will goes bad. They only have 6 employees and have been overwhelmed, but they are trying to keep people updated. Received the following update by email this morning:

    ###

    First and foremost, we are grateful to all of you who have genuinely supported us!

    We would like to address the timeline in regards to the orders. The clubQ incident happened the night of Nov.19. Post, we were inundated with orders in support of one of our founders, Rich. We were in no way ever expecting to go through what we encountered as a family and business due to the shooting, and we were in no way prepared for the amount of orders we received. We were and are humbled by the amount of support and love that has transpired from such a horrific event. Having said that, when this happened, businesses were at their fiscal year. So, merchants were not willing to take on such a large order on the fly. Pile on top of that Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and all observed holidays in between. It has been an unbelievable task to try and find a company who is credible and willing to fulfill all orders while dealing with all of our emotions. Please remember we are a small, independent craft beer brewery that has 6 employees - 3 of whom were physically a part of the tragedy. We do not have a sales department or merchandising department. Jess, founder and CEO, wears all hats and was there that night with her daughter and husband. What should have taken maybe a month to fulfill orders has been delayed due to holiday season and fiscal year.

    We are on the verge of signing a contract with a merchant who has agreed to fill all orders! When it is a signed deal, we will let you all know. We are just as desperate to get the merch out to you all! In the meantime, we are practicing our patience as well to make sure we have the correct contract in place.

    Please know that hateful messages, cyber bullying, threats and trolling will NOT be tolerated. We will delete your messages. We will hang up on you. We will block and report you.

    We continue to hope that you and your loved ones are safe and out of harms way. Thank you, again, to all who have and continue to support us unconditionally. We feel you. We hear you. And, we love you. Salud

    I just hope we didn't break them and everyone has some patience.

    I really hope there hasn't been much of that for crying out loud. I'm fine if I never get my shirt, but I'm sure they'll come through when they can.

    I couldnt believe that part of the email when I read it today. Why would people be leaving hateful messages and making threats? The fact that they needed to include that in their email probably means it has been significant. Good lord, what is wrong with people?

    Im just hopeful the brewery comes out of this way ahead of where they projected to be and that the family continues to do the good work they have been doing. Glad to be supportive of clearly good folks.

    It’s a shame that people are being overly dramatic dicks, but can you really be surprised when your business caters to the brilliant notions of the inebriated?
