shoot seems a dry city / town would be a prefect spot to open up a LHBS.

Maybe you've stumbled upon your next project after your move.

Tyler is a cool town but dry like they say. My parents are out there and when I go out to visit I have to make a beer run for them on the way from Dallas. People are brewing out there for sure- meth-. One spot of good news is a brewery is being built there. My dad couldn't tell me the name. If its a BJ's then they won't be brewing on premise. If otherwise you might be able to get grains from them. 1.5 hours east is Richardson Homebrew mart. They ship stuff too. Like the above post - live south of town. I think everything is growing that way, towards lake palestine. If your laid back you will like it. If your a nightlife party dude, stay in AZ. Either way, good luck on your job. I'm sure tyler could use a homebrewer, bigtime!

U can order a drink anywhere. Clubs will ask for I'd to swipe and then u become a "member". U just have to drive a bit to get to store. And yes u can brew beer here

X3 or 4 on Austin Homebrew Supply. Though I would suggest some routine stops in Dallas to shop the LHBS while picking up good beer... you won't find a wide craft selection anywhere near Tyler to my knowledge. Here is a list of bottle shops to get the goodies from. Listed by closest to your area first... There are more but these seem to be the hot ones with the seasonal special releases. Welcome!

- Mr. G's Beverages (Plano)
- Keg's and Barels (Plano)
- Central Market (Plano)
- Lonestar or Sams (Carrollton)
- Halls (Grapevine / Colleyville)

Hello fellow Texans, I hail from the ****hole named Laredo Tx. I'm very excited about beginning my home brew hobby, but have the same problem: I cant find a LHBS. I'm driving up to Austin tomorrow, but thats about 3+ hrs away. I guess San Antonio would be my best bet. Does anyone know of any LHBS's down in south texas?

no I am not party night life guy. I am Family Dad now with one kid and another on the way I can't afford to go out and party anymore. I sold my Project Race Truck because I needed a 4 door suv instead of a gutted 5 point harnessed window netted toy.

but it seems Tyler has a LOT more going for it than were I am currently living.. 11K population Vs 150-200K HUGE DIFFERENCE there.

so I'll just have to build up a nice big pipeline going on and rely on home brew.

so South Tyler huh I'll make sure to let me wife know. we are thinking of using a Realtor to find us a place once I get offered the job and know when I'll be making the move.

I would not move to east Texas. Then again, I'm not really thrilled to be anywhere in Texas (except Austin).

If you make good money your quality of life will be huge as compared to AZ. I disagree with Apache. Austin is San Fran East. Tyler is what you make of it. You can shoot guns all day long and still drink beer doing it. Texas summers suck. They are hot, sweaty and long. Best you get to brewing your ass off to stay cool. Check out holly tree area. Lots of Doctors, etc down there. I would ditch a realtor just use for sale by owner. There are good deals there, they are, let's just say in need of money. Like all of us. Step out of town towards Canton, ex: brownsboro. Good land to be had. You could build a small barn, no permits, and build your own brewery. Tyler willl be fun if you don't follow the sheep. Think out of the box.

In the North Dallas area there is homebrew headquarters, thats where I get most of my stuff. Also, if you join the North Texas Homebrewers Association, you get 10% off of everything there. www.homebrewhq.com
