In 2012 and 2013, Balcones was ready to take on outside investors to fund their explosive growth. After an announcement of agreement, the deal quickly went awry, resulting in significant court disputes and alleged threats of violence. Founder Chip Tate has since left the company, leaving operations in the hands of the investors.
