This probably is not the first time you've heard about microbreweries. In the past decade they have risen from a fairly obscure subculture to a staple of American life. Breweries founded less than a decade ago, like Ft. Worth's Rahr & Sons, are now legendary. What you may not have known is that DFW is home to a large and growing brewing scene. One year ago, Irving resident William Heggedusich decided to become a part of that legacy.
“I had the opportunity to work at a resort in San Antonio where I met a guy who's actually into home brewing. He got me into the idea of home brewing and good beers, and how that should be going on,” said Heggedusich, a student at the University of Dallas, where he will graduate with a degree in business next year. He is also the latest beer enthusiast to take the art of brewing into his own hands.
