BrewDog’s Beer Geek Awards winner!

This summer I entered this photo of Jayson brewing his Sierra Nevada clone from Brewhound, in BrewDog’s Beer Geek Awards (US). And I won! In September, Jayson and I will be going to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. We’ll only be there for one day but I’m so excited and honored that my…

A Grape Picking We Will Go.

Last summer Jayson’s boss told him about a vineyard in Cleburne, Travis’ Vineyard, where he and his family go every year to get grape for jam. So Jayson told him about BrewHound and convinced him to try making wine. (Yay helping small businesses!)

Update! 2018

I haven’t been here in a while. My first beer, Oatmeal Milk Stout turned out great, Jayson was a big fan. He made his beer, a Sierra Nevada clone the next week. I made sure to get some photos of him brewing since I got some of my first brew. We haven’t brewed that much…

Let There Be Beer!

We procrastinated and didn’t  get a mead started in time to have anything ready by Thanksgiving or Christmas (either for gifts or just to share) so I suggested we make a couple of beers. Jayson has made a few before, that’s what got him into this hobby 6 or 7 years ago, but I have…

My Meads are ready!

About a month ago I did my last transfer.   Jayson and I are a good pair, he likes dry mead/wine, I require sweet. So when we brew there’s a wide range of options…and usually if one doesn’t turn out right for me, he’ll like it. lol That rambling was just to say, I back…

Five Year Plan.

Okay maybe not actually 5 years, but I had an idea tonight. Jayson and I went out with the intentions of going to Rahr for their St. Patrick’s Day Mid Week Tasting. It’s pretty fun and reasonably priced! For $10 (unless they’ve changed it) you get a one of a kind pint glass themed for…

MY first mead!

Our 5 gallon bucket of honey got here on Tuesday, so yesterday we made mead! We went to HEB and got two 5 gallon jugs of water, the kind that you can exchange for full jugs. That way we save a little money and we aren’t wasting a ton of 1 gal plastic bottles. I…

Let’s make some Mead.

Jayson has brewed his own beer a few times, but it’s been a while. A few months ago he decided he wanted to give mead a shot. And so we have a closet with 10 gallons of mead going. One big 5 gallon that is just a basic mead with a hint of orange, he…
