Remember this beer drinking neon cowboy?

This was one of the best brewpub signs ever, but when Rio Bravo Brewing in Albuquerque closed1 in 1997 apparently nobody saved the neon.

Rio Bravo Brewing, Albuquerque, circa 1995

Now a new Rio Bravo Brewing is ready to open, although not in the original spot (appropriately, considering the neon, on old Route 66). And not with the same sign.

    That sign must have cost a pretty penny too. Too bad it is lost to time. We need more neon.
