I was happy to "meet" someone from Port Lavaca on this forum a while back, and I didn't think anybody in the coastal bend brewed and I was worried about it being hard to go more than two months without homebrewing when we're in Texas!

Last winter, I had the homebrewing withdrawal pretty bad. We were in Rockport, driving down a sidestreet and I saw what I thought was a single tier brew sculpture in a driveway. I yelled "stop the truck!" at Bob and made him back up. I was so excited, I was going to go knock and the door and introduce myself to see if I could talk brewing with someone. When Bob backed up, I saw it was a peanut boiling set up. Darn it!

You guys might be it on here. I'm about 4 hours up the road on 281 from you guys.

And Yooper, it's always good to see another Packers fan!

Default I am down here too

Great to see there are at least two other home brewers in South Texas. I am in Harlingen, not too far from McAllen. I am fairly new to this, but having a lot of fun. Drinking a Porter as I say hello. Still a little green, but it is difficult to keep enough in the pipeline to let it age properly. Anyway, first post, "Hail and well met".

I used to cross the border at Los Ebanos on my motorcycle, spend a week or so riding deep into Mexico camping in the mountains. Those were the good old days.

One more deep south texas brewer here!!! I'm in edinburg. My friend who taught me to brew is in mission and I know a few guys from UTPA that are in mcallen.

Are there any local places to get brewing supplies? maybe dry yeast for emergency pitching? I know feldman's market at 10th and Bus 83 sold 3 gal carboys, auto siphons and grolsch bottle gaskets when they opened but I think that is gone now.

I have not found anything local. I usually use Homebrewparty in San Antonio or Austin Homebrew. Previously my son was going to college in San Marcos so I would get up that way regularly. Now I need to plan on a 3 to 6 month supply on each visit.
