Opened the +Galveston Bay Beer Company​ taproom today and what a turnout! Had every chair and table in the house occupied. Thanks to all our fans who turned out and made for such a successful launch. Cheers!

Building A Taproom

I've been so busy lately I haven't had time to post, but I have a lot planned for 2015! We are knocking down walls at +Galveston Bay Beer Company in preparation for putting in a taproom where the thirsty masses can come and try all our brews, including some special small batches that won't be found in bars.

This week alone I am brewing up my rye saison, a pale ale, a smoked kolsch, and a gose. I have plenty more ideas for some experimental brews and having a taproom to put it in is going to make it all the more exciting. Currently, I have three different beers at the local bars and I am getting some great feedback on them. Going to be doing a tap takeover at The Republic House on Tuesday so that is going to be fun.

+Andrew Ryan +Skyler Forshage  It's very much a Gulf Coast thing.....we are very humid, moldy states. Pretty much all houses built after the late 90's are made with the treated studs.

Best delivery ever. The two new 40 barrel fermentation tanks came in today. Getting them off the truck was one thing, getting them in the brewery...well y'all are going to have to wait till tomorrow to see those pictures. Time for a beer!

Here's a nice little article showing how craft beer is exploding in popularity across Texas as new breweries open up every month. Got a mention of +Galveston Bay Beer Company in here too! Looking forward to an even greater selection of local craft beers in the coming months.
Editor's note: This story has been updated to clarify the number of breweries open in 2014. It's no secret that craft beer is on the rise in the U.S. In…

After experiencing the Indianapolis craft/micro brew scene, there's just no going back to macrobrews. I even brands that I used to consider fairly palatable, like Sam Adams, if there's a Triton, Sun King, or Upland beer available.

My two favorite bars each have over 100 varieties of beer. All of them craft/micro brews.

Mashing In A Belgian Quad

I decided it was time to brew another big belgian beer. I think I have just about reached the limits of this mash tun! The last quad I brewed turned out a bit sweeter than I would have liked, still within style at a final gravity of 1.024 but I want to go just a tad bit drier so this time I am mashing lower with a beta sacch rest at 142°F for 20 minutes and alpha sacch rest at 152°F for an hour. This should bring my FG to about 1.018 if all goes as planned. I love the smell of wort in the morning.

Fermenting
Cherrywood Smoked Kolsch
Rye Saison
Pilsner

On Tap
Hammerhead Scotch Ale
Sunny Day IPA
Tart Cherry Brown Ale
Laffite's Wheat
Midnight Brew Coffee Stout
Winter Warmer

Going to make a trip out to the farmers market next week to see what local ingredients I can use for a new recipe. Probably going to pick up some honey to make a braggot. So many ideas so little time.

I need to brew one of these for a competition later this year. Never brewed one before.

After a long day of brewing I head out to the bar and order a pint of my own beer. Damn, it feels good to be a brewer.

Nighttime brewing. It's a cold night, but it's pretty darn warm where I am standing. That's about 800 gallons of boiling wort that will become our first big batch of Hammerhead Scotch Ale.

The revolution will be televised!

Yes, the place looks a little sketchy at first, but the guys there are honest, helpful, and more importantly they know what they are doing. Not only were they able to get my special oil filter and do a full synthetic oil change with the inspection, they did it quickly on my lunch break and I still had time to eat before going back to work. I will be taking my car here for now on!
