San Antonio’s newest biotech company, Alamo Yeast Labs, will be the first biotech company in Texas to service the craft beer industry and avid home brewers. Alamo Yeast Labs will premier its services during San Antonio Beer Week with a free seminar on brewing microbiology.

San Antonio, TX, May 08, 2013 --( Alamo Yeast Labs, in San Antonio, Texas, will officially debut its services during San Antonio Beer Week with a free brewing microbiology seminar on Monday, May 20th, 2013 at Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling. Alamo Yeast Labs intends to provide breweries and home brewers with quality microbiological products and services that are necessary to the brewing process.

“Alamo Yeast Labs is the first of its kind in Texas,” says Sena Rayos, President of Alamo Yeast Labs. “It is a biotech company that services the craft beer industry by providing yeast products, microbiological services, and beverage analysis. We strive to have a real, personal connection with all of our customers and we hope to stand out by truly helping everyone who makes beer.”

Mrs. Rayos discovered the idea for her company while working for a biotech company in Austin, Texas that was across the street from a popular Texas brewery. Through her observations, she soon realized the importance of microbiology to the brewing process, and decided to launch a company dedicated to the sciences of brewing beer.

“Brewing encompasses many aspects of science: biochemistry, microbiology, engineering, chemistry,” states Mrs. Rayos. “By understanding the science behind brewing, I think many people will appreciate all the hard work and thinking that goes behind making that bottle of craft beer.”

Alamo Yeast Labs is one of four companies of its kind in the United States. Most beer-related microbiological companies are located in California and the Northwest region of the United States, generally, where many of the large craft beer companies are located.

“San Antonio is a great place to start this business because the craft beer culture is really starting to take off,” asserts Mrs. Rayos. “It’s an exciting time to be in a place where you can be a part of this movement and its history. The people in San Antonio have been overwhelmingly supportive and I think that’s what makes SA stand out and possible for me to start this company.”
