Giant Beatles statues on display at 8th Wonder Brewery (KTRK)

I finally got a look at sculptor David Adickes' giant statues of the Beatles. John, Paul, George, and Ringo, four tons per Beatle, stand in the backyard of 8th Wonder Brewery, located near downtown Houston.

"We have an agreement for the Beatles statues to be here for at least one year," said Ryan Soroka, "entrebrewneur" and president of the craft brewery. "We have plenty of room for them in our backyard. Like everyone, I grew up with the Beatles music, so I'm honored and happy to have them. People take photos with the statues. It's pretty cool."

As part of the deal, Soroka had to pay for the statues to be disassembled and transported from Adickes' property off I-10 to the brewery. John, Paul, and George each were delivered in three pieces, while the more elaborate Ringo sculpture arrived in five pieces because of his drum kit.
