Bahamian Brewery To Rebuild & Restore GB Operations
Six months to have Sands Beer back in Bahamian Hands
GB, The Bahamas – In 2008 the Bahamian Brewery and Beverage Company
Limited (BBB), the brainchild of James “Jimmy” Sands officially opened
its doors on Grand Bahama Island. Its mission, to provide ‘Truly
Bahamian’ products that all Bahamians could enjoy and be proud of. In
the more than ten years since, the Brewery has redefined the beer
business in The Bahamas and established itself as an integral part of
the Grand Bahama landscape. Following the passage of Hurricane Dorian
however, that geography is now forever changed. The mega-storm which was
rated a Category 5, blew through Grand Bahama causing immeasurable
damage and destruction. Like scores of homes and residences on the
island, The Brewery did not escape Dorian’s wrath.
