Fermentations – Waco, TX

A Waco brewery, Bare Arm Brewing, wraps up my Waco, TX highlights.  Who would have thought we would find Faith, Food, Farm AND Fermentations in a small city that sits 1 1/2 hours north of Austin and 1 1/2 hours south of Dallas.  If it weren’t for the Fixer Uppers, Waco may have never crossed our mind to visit but we are glad it did.


We asked one of the brewery owners the significance of the name Bare Arms.  He said it is their business philosophy  – roll up your sleeves, dig in and work hard.  The logo on the glass below shows those sleeves rolled up.

There is a Bare Arms Brewing Mug Club.


Here’s a local retired police officer’s Mug.  He, his wife, and oldest daughter were enjoying a beer together.  They were so welcoming and even shared their story of the adoption of their youngest child, a precious nine year old little girl.


One of the owners was a former mechanical engineer.


We had conversations with several people while visiting Waco.  There was a sense of gratitude for the Gaines family.  Hundreds of individuals and businesses are being blessed by their success.  Bare Arms Brewery is one of those businesses.

Cheers to Bare Arms Brewery!

Our son gave me The Magnolia Story book on tape, narrated by Chip and Joanna Gaines, which Dave and I listened to on our drive to Texas.  Three themes resonated with us throughout their story – faith, love, and perseverance.  The Gaines’ expressed their surprise that people are interested in their story.  Perhaps we are drawn to those three themes today more than ever.  I know I am.

Thanks for joining me as I shared a few of my Waco finds and experiences.  In this season of Advent, may you all experience faith in our Savior, the love of God, family and friends, and perseverance to journey through whatever you are facing.

Bless you.

Romans 5:1-5 “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace which we now stand.  And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.  Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.”
