Default Tyler Texas

ok so on the 22nd of this month I fly out to Tyler for a job interview. its with my current company for an Operations Manager position. I'd be attempting to rent out my house here in Az and rent a place in Tyler.

the wife is excited that I'd be making a HUGE jump in my carrier as am I, but what about LHBS I tried to google search but came up short. so anyone in TX familiar with Tyler have any input.

also looking for nice places to live if there is a preferred area over another. 4 bedroom house is a must since we have one 15 month old and another on the way.

also what about transporting home brew during a move I guess I would not want anything fermenting, but kegged beer should be fine I would assume.

feeling are excited, scared,optimistic, nervous and happy to be moving up.

also what good bars, restaurants, pubs should I be checking out?

Jason! Did you get the job? I'm a Tylerite looking for some homebrew buddies to learn from.

We live in the Azalea district (older neighborhood) here in central Tyler and love it. There are houses all over the place of varying sizes. Let me know man.

well odds are pretty good they are going to offer me the position. I'll meet the Branch Manager, and regional manager on Tues the 22nd and Fly back to Az on the 23rd. They will get together with my regional manager and talk about it. if all goes well I'll start training asap. and then move out to Tyler. hopefully they give me notice so i can get my affairs in order here to get my place rented out and find a place to rent in Tyler.

I am super excited.

is there a LHBS to buy product from in Tyler because I couldn't find anything via Google.

Well, I don't think Tyler has much as its relatively small.

My suggestion is to do a weekend trip to Austin. Austin is about 4 hours away from Tyler. Austin Homebrew Supply is one of the best in the country and a perfect place to stock up on supplies. You could hit up some of the breweries in the area and a ton of great bars.

Houston is also close, its a little less than 4 hours away from Tyler. There are a few homebrew supply shops around here. The one that always comes to mind is De Falcos

Of course, Houston has some good breweries too! You could do a weekend trip and check out St.Arnold's and Southern Star. If you go to St.Arnold's, make sure to get there early because people line up quickly and the wait can be a while if you get there late. Southern Star is a bit more laid back and much smaller scale. No Label brewing is the new guy in town and they do tours, but according to their website they aren't doing tours right now. For bars, Petrol Station and Flying Saucer are a must. Petrol Station even does growler fill ups.

Less than 2 hours to Dallas (maybe hour and a half?) - you could get to this LHBS pretty easy:

Adam, thanks, Tyler small?

you should check out where I live now... Chino Valley and work in Prescott.

at least Tyler has Colleges and a Freeway that means its at least big enough for that.

although I do hail From Orange County CA

Jason,

First off, awesome name.

Deafsmith is right, Homebrew HQ is probably your closest LHBS. Everybody there is really helpful. And Tyler to Dallas is a straight shot, decent two hour drive.

Good Luck on the interview,

Jason

yeah I pretty much have the job I think *being very optimistic* here. but yeah I guess its not different than driving 2 hours to Phoenix like i have now. *sigh* oh well at least I'll have more than one grocery store, more than 2 gas stations, and more restaurants to dine at in Tyler

yeah I live in BFE AZ population of 11k vs Tylers 204K population.

All you need to know about Tyler TX is that it produced one of the greatest running backs in history. Ever heard of the Tyler Rose? Mr. Earl Campbell? Only one of the greatest running backs in college and NFL history he is even in the NFL hall of fame. He was also the #1 pick in the 1978 draft to the Houston Oilers. oh ya and i get my homebrew supplies from AHS in Austin TX.
