    Was told this is solid place for future beer travels! Stay in south central Texas. Same username on Untappd so check me out there if you feel ever so inclined. I love BIFs and shares so I know what forum I'll be hitting up soon!

    Seguin was the home of Dr. John E. Park, who experimented in construction using concrete made from local materials. The nearly 100 structures—the courthouse, schools, churches, homes, cisterns, walls, etc.—made up the largest concentration of early 19th-century concrete buildings in the United States.[7] About 20 of them remain standing.

    The use of concrete largely ended when the railroad arrived in 1876, bringing cheap lumber and the equipment needed for brick-making. The town had five brickworks, and the wooden buildings of downtown were completely replaced with brick by the beginning of World War I.

    Seguin Brewing ever improve? I haven't been there in forever.

    From their Yelp reviews you'd think they were the second coming of Christ.

    They're okay. I like to call them a transitional brewery. Good for someone who is trying to expand from big beer, but not trying to take a deep plunge into the craft scene.
    Although, I can kill sixers of their kolsch all day, errday.
