Don’t mess with Texas’ beer! Since 1909, Shiner Beer has been brewed at the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas. Born in Bavaria, founder Kosmos Spoetzl’s passion for beer took him as far as Egypt before arriving in the tiny town of Shiner. It was there that he bought the town’s brewery and became the company’s first official Brewmaster, a job that he held for nearly 50 years. Today, the company sends more than 6 million cases of Shiner Beer to fans across the country.
