Good to hear. I may try going this Saturday if I get everything wrapped up for the semester before then, otherwise it will probably need to wait for after finals. I wonder if there are any other small breweries I've lived next to for years without being aware of.

I love the fact that at this tour they don't just give you a sampler glass, they either loan you a pint glass, or you can by their glass for $5. The fact that they let you just hang out after the tour, while drinking as much as you want is a great attraction. I have seen several bicyclists ride up on their bike, take the tour, drink a few pints, then take off, like its their every Saturday ritual.

For those who want to tour breweries, Rahr has a nice one, too (Ft.Worth) Their roof collapsed since I've been there but I believe they are back in business.

Franconia Brewing: Want to Take a Tour?

It is $5, which gets you about a 20-30 minute tour of the facility by Dennis Wehrmann (owner/brewmaster) and samples of his brews both during and after the tour.
This is definitely worth going to! just don't ask if he plans to bottle or can his beers anytime soon, because he doesn't want to!

I've tried beers from both local breweries and was impressed. Good to know they are doing tours. I'll have to make a trip up to McKinney sometime.

It's a small brewery, not a great to see if you know how a brewery works. BUT the brewer is a good fellow and his wife is nice, too.

I don't drink in bars much, but when I do I look for the Franconia weizen. It tastes like what normal weizen tastes like in Germany. Most of the wheat beers we import are damaged, IMO; they're delicate.

That would be largely because of the pasteurization done to preserve the beer for export. Fresh beer is great.
