Customer Reviews

I've only been here a couple of times, since I'm fairly new to home brewing, but the place has definite appeal for hobbyists. As I said, I'm new to this craft, so I need advice and patience, and the staff is more than happy to provide that. They have a wide selection of bulk syrup extracts and grains. The prices seem fair (although I have little to compare them to) and the staff is extremely knowledgeable. I have taken in recipes and the staff can scale them to the size I'd like to brew, and also recommend subtle changes and enhancements to the recipe with a full explanation of why. As a bonus, they frequently have home brews on tap for your sampling pleasure.

Meet Our Team

Our company is built with experience, friendliness and proficiency
Scott Birdwell Proprietor 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.
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!

Calendar Of Events A comprehensive list of Seminars, Beer and Wine Tasting and Demonstrations around the area for the home beer and wine making enthusiast.
