OK, so I'm a little behind the 8-ball......story of my life.

Not at all.  I just wanted to tie the two together.

I don't read everything so it was news to me as well. Those beers from the Celis brewery in Austin were phenomenal. And it was a time when I was transitioning from Busch light to Paulaner and Bass. The craft brewery movement had barely begun.

It's a loss.

I had a chance to visit that brewery in Austin many years ago.  The contrast between the antique looking European mash vessel and the sanitized lab and fermentation rooms was striking.  It was a very nice tour.

+1 to all the above.  Particularly the part about not reading everything, I was wondering how you folks kept up without being pretty selective.  But also to the transition timing.  Celis was one of the crucial breweries that propelled me on the journey that has led to homebrewing.
