Last week Hops and Grain officially started making beer in their east Austin brewhouse, and they've shared some videos - one of a tour before they got the brewing started and another of their first batch.
Hops and Grain runs two separate brewing operations. They have a smaller pilot 3 barrel unit and another 15 barrel operation for their large batches. The first recipe was their Pale Dog American Pale Ale. The second was Alt-eration, a German Altbier. Both batches have been dropped into the fermenters where they'll sit for over a week. Expect the first tastes to be available at the start of Austin Beer Week, which begins October 22nd.
