Customer Reviews

I'm a home brewer whom has done (27) 5 gallon batches of beer over the last few years. Am completing a hobby tour of every home brew supply store in South and Central Texas this year, including San Antonio, Austin and Dallas. While all share similar inventories and layouts such as Austin Home Brew, Home Brew Party in San Antonio, Wine Makers Toy Store & Dallas Home Brew which I visited yesterday, I'd have to say that DeFalco's is most certainly one of the very best. Typical of all mentioned they do have a great selection of grains that they will mill on demand, liquid and dry yeasts of every type, but over and above the call of duty they have top shelf dry yeast, in particular Mangrove Jack's (made in the UK) from New Zealand. Half sold out of course as home brewers are learning about that new one and how robust it is. Very happy with the cost of my purchase of their in house kit, cleaners that beat mail order prices and the service was superb. ...

Meet Our Team

Our company is built with experience, friendliness and proficiency

Team - Scott Birdwell

Scott Birdwell Scott brewed his first batch of homebrew in January 1978. His first batch of beer was the first homebrew he had ever tasted (underwhelming, to say the least!). Nevertheless, he was hooked and within a couple of months was working at DeFalco’s part-time. A few months later, he was full-time. Within a year, Scott became manager of the store and by the end of 1980, he had taken ownership (What the hell was he thinking?! I suppose it beats finding real work. . .). Scott became the first Master Judge in the Beer Judge Certification Program in 1988 and is currently ranked as a Grand Master Judge. Note: That and a couple of bucks will buy you a cup of coffee at Denny’s. Almost forty years later, he’s still here - a lifetime sentence, you might say.

Team - Jim Trippel

Jim Trippel Office Manager A retired United States Navy captain, Jim spent 25 years in the service. He had been homebrewing since 1999, so the move into the back of the house at DeFalco’s was natural move for Jim in early 2012. He soon discovered the joys of homemade wine and is now cranking out as much wine as beer! Call him “Captain Bligh!”
David Toups General Manager David joined us in early 2009 after years of brewing at home. He fit right into the team and soon became a favorite with staff & customers alike. He demonstrated his brewing prowess by winning Best of Show at the 2015 Bluebonnet Brew-Off (over 1,300 entries!). David is so awesome, we had to make him our General Manager in 2013! He beats a pretty mean set of drums, too!
