Forget Trump’s wall! This brewery wants a beer bar on the U.S.-Mexico border

Instead of a wall between Mexico and the United States, a brewery is setting up a craft beer bar on the border.

“The Bar on the Edge” was announced Thursday, but no specifics were released on when or where exactly the Scottish brewer BrewDog would open the bar on the border between Texas and Chihuahua, Mexico.

On the American side — marked by a dotted line across the center of the bar — you’ll find Mexican beers, and vice versa for the other half.

The company said it’s all about collaboration and inclusivity, and what better way to make that clear than with a physical structure right on the line. The bar will be made from old shipping containers.

Co-founder James Watt said in a release about the border bar, “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.”

He said he’ll worry about “red tape stuff” later and will set up shop “until someone tells us to move it.” The secret spot where the mobile building will sit isn’t an area that is regularly visited, but the beer company hopes people will come for the brews and accepting atmosphere.

To celebrate the border bar, the brewery’s Columbus, Ohio, taproom is having a party this weekend with Texan-based breweries and mezcal and tequila cocktails.

Best part? Mexico doesn’t have to pay for it.
