Yeh, as much as I hate to admit it, Austin is probably the best place in the country to live. The music scene is comparable to Chicago and the west coast, several of the top ten bbq places within 30 miles, any kind of fishing you want within a half day, pro sports also, beautiful country, and a college town to boot. If only they had a football team

Which ones:

1) Puke Orange color
2) If they only had a football team
3) Best place in the country to live

My guess is you're PO'd about #3, cuz you want to keep the population down

Or as we used to call him (strung together as if all one word) CheatinJackieSherrill? Wow, there's a name I haven't heard in awhile.

Okay, quick Aggie joke: Two Aggies walk out of a bar. Hey, it could happen!

Live Oak Brewery - heard of this place, would love to go there

Bitter End Bistro and Brewery - I have a glass from there that my parents gave me. Never been.

Lovejoys - seen their ads somewhere before. Never been.

All the others are new names to me, although I think you have mentioned Real Ale Brewing Company in Blanco here before.


Beer & apple fritters - what could be better?!

Hey Rhoobard, this is the place to go for some good suds. If your ever in Austin stop by ...they have some really good beers.

The Bitter End is not too bad either but a little hyped.

Well, six weeks after brewing and 16 days after bottling, I had a chilled bottle of this '1st AG'. This ale turned out very, very well. It has a clear, light copper color, nice head and a slightly sweet taste. When I brew it again (and I will), I will likely up the hops just a wee bit.

All in all, I am very happy with this. I can really see the advantages of AG brewing. This is, by far, the smoothest, cleanest, least harsh and most (for lack of any other term) delicate ale I've ever brewed.

I'm glad I went AG, but also glad I waited until my extract brews became very tasty, and I had done my homework. Homework in the form of asking the advice of you wonderful people, reading BYO, reading Palmer's How To Brew, etc.

If I can do it... anyone can!

Cheers!
