Bahamian Brewery To Rebuild & Restore GB Operations
Six months to have Sands Beer back in Bahamian Hands

Freeport 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.
