Brewery hops into spotlight and not for the best reason as donations come under fire

Our state has failed us again. Our governor has trashed the state mask mandate and allowed the state to reopen at 100 percent capacity.

The grim news that will undoubtedly further spread the virus came just shortly after thousands across Texas lined up in recent weeks for food and water distribution after the winter storm. Thousands left stores shelves empty, quickly panic buying food and supplies needed to get them through a disaster no one knew how long might last.

Others lined up for food distribution sites organized by non-profits like the San Antonio Food bank and city-run water sites, mirroring Soviet-era images from ration ravaged Eastern Europe. This is our new normal.

But if there’s a glimmer of hope, it’s that Texans and San Antonians have been saved by their neighbors and local organizers who have worked together to minimize need and suffering in a catastrophic time. When pipes froze across the city, San Antonio breweries opened their tasting rooms offering free water as neighbors do.

When we can’t count on the government, we turn to these same neighbors — neighbors that work, run business, or volunteer in our communities. We expect honesty and compassion from those in our own backyards.

On Thursday however, another alleged business scandal, apart of those that have been all too common throughout the pandemic as businesses suffer, came to light.
