Down in Austin!

So I apologize for slacking, but I have a couple vacations this upcoming week, starting today!  Good news is, I plan on posting about said vacations in the mean time to make up for the lack of DFW beer postings.

I apologize for typos as I’ll be using my phone. 

Today, I’m down in Austin, seeing my favorite band Umphreys McGee.  They’re playing at Stubbs on the outdoor stage, then a late night set on the indoor stage.  Gonna be a long, fun night!  Good thing everywhere down here carries local beers I don’t often see on DFW!

Last night I had a Independence Brewing Stash IPA.  It was great!  Five hop varieties used, lots of citrus, peach, and grapefruit with piney/resinous undertones.  Try.one next time you find it. 

More to come!  Spending all day just enjoying Austin (lots of beer sampling implied!).

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.
