When I lived in Fort Worth, I went to the Winemaker's Shoppe, but I don't know if they're still in business. There's at least four HBS in the DFW area last I heard. I'd suggest going to DFW before making the drive to Austin or Houston. I'm in Houston now and I order from AHS a lot (such great prices and sales!) and when I order standard shipping from AHS I typically get my package within 2 days. I like to think of them as my LHBS.

I've been to Prescott (toured a school there) and thought it was a really nice place. Get your fill of non-flat terrain now, as TX (for the most part) has very little! Flat as they come! Best of luck on the career advancement!

Of course! Sorry! DFW = Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. It's the code of the airport and is just an easy name for the entire metropolitan area.

Dude. Tyler is not really a small town. It has close to 150k proper and over 1 million people in the area counties etc. It is half way from Dallas and Shreveport (casinos). Great mix of restaraunts etc. Has a nice mix of nightlife. Not like dallas but u can find what u need. It us a dry county and u need to plan a 20-30 minute drive for beer stores. I order everything online from Austin homebrew. Shows up quickly. I also used to live in the azalea district. South Tyler is nice. Do not live north of downtown

I forgot about this. I'm not familiar with the Tyler area, but the DFW area, and many other locations in the Bible Belt, are peppered with Dry areas. I believe it's up to the precinct to determine whether you can or cannot purchase alcohol. It can be a pain if you're in a rush, but should by no means deter the move. Anyways, you do make your own, right?

I lived in Tyler for a while, and at least while I was there (late 90s) Smith county was dry. So you'll have to plan your commercial beer runs for sure if that's still the case. Otherwise, if you're making your own, you should be alright.

Counties in Texas can choose whether to allow the sale of alcohol. The ones that don't allow any alcohol sales are dry. Smith county is one such dry county, meaning you'll have to drive to a neighboring county to get your booze. There are no (legal) liquor stores in Smith county. You can buy a drink in a restaurant, but I think you might have to become a member of their club or something antiquated like that.

This might come in handy if you move there:

holy crap I guess living in Ca has really clouded my understanding on how things work. I see Tyler is surrounded by semi wet counties what a bunch of crap.

I'm pretty sure that homebrewing is legal anywhere in Texas, even if the county is dry.
