Past Brewers (2016):
Isaac Woods Brewers -
co-founders and brothers Brian and Jeffrey Anderson have been homebrewing craft beer for just over 1 year. A medical guy and marketing guy, respectively, they received a homebrew starter kit for a joint Father’s Day gift and began the journey into the art and science of beer making. Moving quickly from extract to all grain brewing, they brew beer with plenty of depth and flavor, but with a focus on a restrained, harmonious balance believing that no one aspect of the taste experience should completely dominate the others. As a result, Isaac Woods’ beers tend to be subtle and suggestive as opposed to brash and overpowering.
Isaac Woods is two brothers with one goal: use the highest quality ingredients and employ the best brewing techniques to make the finest beer that we would want to drink and be proud to serve. We look forward to presenting our beers at the festival and meeting other fellow homebrewers. Cheers!
Austin Price - Originally from Mesa, Arizona Austin moved to Bryan, Texas in 2012 with his wife Melissa, and three daughters, Alexis, Trinity and Savannah and his son Robert. Austin started homebrewing in early 2012 for the enjoyment of creating a delicious adult beverage for his adult family members to enjoy.
Austin loves the hobby and is looking to open his own brewpub in the future. In 2016, he started the Brazos Valley Homebrew Society to openly share and trade homebrew knowledge, recipes and ideas for homebrewers, not only in the cities of within Brazos County but in all of the state of Texas. if interested go to facebook and serch Brazos Valley Homebrew Society. Austin is proud to be in association with the Austin Homebrew Appreciation Society!
Michael Brown - A previous AHB Community School Board Member and parent, 2016 will mark his 6th BrewFest as a brewer. He’s been making home-brew since 2007 and started crafting original recipes with local ingredients early on. Michael celebrates diversity by both brewing and drinking all types of beer.
