Awesome Movement in San Antone to Expand Craft Beer Selections at Resturaunts

Scott Metzger, owner of Freetail Brewing Company, UTSA Economics professor, and all around great advocate of craft beer (especially Texas brews), has started a campaign in San Antonio to encourage restaurants to expand their beer list.  He even started a blog of “Scott Approved” establishments.  I even believe he is offering to help establishments become “Scott Approved” for free.

So check out this article and websites (especially his Brewed and Never Battered blog, which will most likely contain information about changing brewing regulations at the state level once the legislature is back in session.  I will be sure to cover it as well.)

Scott and I have never met but have communicated on the interwebz.  He seems like a great guy and is always willing to help.  So if anybody’s going to San Antone, or Phoe-nix Ar-i-zo-na (more bonus points for name that reference!), be sure to stop by Freetail and sample some of their tasty beers. 

Eventually, this needs to happen in DFW as well.  Baby steps…

About dfwbeerscene

I am a beer nut. I drink it all the time, I brew it as much as humanly possible, and if I'm not doing either of the first two, I'm probably thinking about it. So as a beer nut, I've always followed the limited beer scene in DFW, and up until recently, there wasn't a whole lot to discuss. Well now there sure is! As many of you already know, DFW and its surrounding areas is having a bit of a beer renaissance. Every month last year I'd hear about more and more breweries "in development" and I'd scurry the web to find out where I can monitor their progress. And that, is what I intend to do with this blog. So now a little bit about myself: I am an environmental scientist by trade, but as of January 2011 I have made the decision to become a professional brewer. Since then, I applied and was accepted to the American Brewers' Guild CraftBrewers Apprenticeship Program and am scheduled to begin in June 2013.
