Building a Brewery: Week 5

Our New Main Brewing T-shirts are pretty much all shipped now. We still have a few of y'all's shirts that chose to send them to us, so if you haven't received yours yet, please give us a call or email at We want y'all to have your awesome shirts ASAP! Don't forget to keep sending in your awesome, funny, cute, outrageous photos sporting your New Main Brewing shirt for your chance at a free year of VIP club membership! Deadline is July 15th!

Brew Sessions
Kyle and I have been busy brewing up more beer for future tasting events. We've slightly tweaked our Pale Ale and IPA recipes based on feedback we received at some of our other tasting events, so hopefully we are getting nice and dialed in on our flavor profiles. Those should be ready in a few weeks. Both of our award winning recipes (Saison and Porter) are carbonated and ready now. We should have a nice selection available at our next tastings.

Summer Dart League
Some of y'all may have heard, Amanda and I play on the New Main Brewers team for the MetroPlex Dart Association Summer League. We're no professionals or anything; the summer league is by and large a just-for-fun tournament. Each week teams visit each other's "home" bars and play games of individual 501, team 801, and doubles cricket, all while enjoying a beer or three at each new location. Our next few games will be "home" at Dr. Jeckyll's Beer Lab in Pantego, so y'all should stop by on Tuesday nights and cheer us on. If you wear your New Main Brewing t-shirts, I just might buy you a beer! Also, if any of y'all would like to join our team, feel free to email and let us know. We could always use a few extra players!

New Fundraisers/Merchandise
We are brainstorming some design ideas for more t-shirts, pint glasses, and growlers to help us reach our funding goals. We have a few we like, so we may be rolling them out very soon. We'd love to hear any ideas you all have for themes, memes, and inbetweens to put on these items, so leave us some comments, message us on Facebook, call us at 682-990-BEER, or tweet at us @thenewmainbrew. We may even have another free year of VIP if we decide to use your idea!

Upcoming Tastings
We don't have anything on the schedule yet, but we are looking to branch out to some new tasting locations. We will have our Porter, Saison, Pale Ale, and Wit at these events. We wanted to have some of the lighter fare available for the hottest Texas summer months, but you can count on us having some tropical stout, barrel aged stout, and a few other little special offerings once the fall months are upon us. 

Independence Day Shenanigans
We hope you all had a great and safe 4th! We were busy all weekend doing "market research" poolside with a few of our favorite local brewing brothers' and sisters' handiwork. We also stopped by Division Brewing Sunday night to catch the Downtown Arlington fireworks show and try out their latest special offerings of Cosmic Wah, Cherry Smack, and The Squeeze. We also got some concrete progress on our soon-to-be-released video featuring yours truly. Special thanks to Jason Tyree for producing and putting up with me while putting the video together!

Atypical DFW Podcast AT DIVISION!!!
Speaking of Mr. Tyree, we will be podcasting tonight from Division Brewing in Arlington for an awesome episode with our favorite brewers! Word on the street is we will also be filming! Anyone in the area needs to cancel all of their plans and come to Division Brewing tonight for a pint or two! It's been a minute since we've had them on the show, so we've got a lot of catching up to do. Should be a great time!

Thanks for stopping by, and keep checking us out week by week for our updates. Cheers!
