Moving to Austin? Today I continue educating new Austin area residents about the basic tidbits that all Central Texans should know by discussing Shiner Bock. Again, there is not a set schedule, but I suspect I’ll add a few posts each week. The posts will be individual, but if you want to see them all, you can check out this page which compiles them all in one place.
Simply referred to as Shiner, this Texas beer has been made in Shiner, Texas since 1913. Originally a seasonal beer available only during Lent, it is now the Spoetzl Brewery’s flagship beer. It was also only available in Texas for many years, but is now available across the country. If you like beer, try one. If you don’t like beer, maybe it’s because you’ve never tried a Shiner. The brewery, located east of San Antonio, is open for tours Monday through Friday.
