    Originally from CA, now living in Austin TX for a few years while I earn a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering.

    I like every style, but am not a fan of roasty beers. I'll try any beer once. Here's how I explained it to a friend:
    When I say roasty I mean the coffee-like roast smell or flavor. It can come from added coffee, or having a malt bill that has a high percentage of roasted malt. It's not the maltiness itself, some doppelbocks and standard stouts can be quite malty without being roasty. I wouldn't really worry about it though, because most out-of-distro beers I get I save for bottle shares (unless it's a hoppy beer that should be drank fast), and others will like it.

    My wants were last updated in Dec 2011, plus a few adds in the last year.

    Starting to do some trading, going to try to keep it locals for locals for a while. See seekabrew to see what TX has access to and compare distro.
    Of note are:

    Adelberts
    Austin Beerworks
    Buffalo Bayou Brewing
    Cedar Creek

    -And a few more new ones.
    -Some places (like Live Oak and North by Northwest) do draught only to my knowledge

    Completed Trades
    miikezombie: First beer for beer trade! Hooked me up with some beer I struck out on and sent very quickly (in a well-packed box) so I could forward it in a gift box I sent out. Will try to trade with again soon. Would recommend to others.

    Others to be added.... See feedback.
