Silas Parker is the brewer (Silas prefers Saccromancer) and owner of Darkside Fermentation. Darkside is a nanobrewery in San Marcos, TX run out of Root Cellar Cafe. They are true craft beer – small, hand bottled, hand labeled and tasty. They are quickly becoming the best reason to stop in San Marcos whilst driving between San Antonio and Austin. With Silas’ plans to expand into a full production brewery, San Marcos may eventually become the destination.

One half ounce of Psilocybe Cubensis.
