The Spoetzel Brewery

where Shiner Bock is made, along with Shiner Blond, Heffewisen, Shiner Light, and the winter and summer stocks.

you can take a tour - given daily around 1:30 every afternoon.

before and after the short tour you can sample some of the beer.

i prefer the heffenwisen - non pasteurized, and reminds me more of a european beer. but i'm no pro when it comes to drinking beer, so...i could be off :-)

shiner beer is now sold in over 25 states - mostly the bock. it's a speciality beer, and that's why you see in under the import beers many times.

and when you're in the hospitality room sampling a beer, you may run into a local coming in on his daily route to sample a beer or two! :)

Address: Spoetzel Brewery.

Directions: just go to only traffice light in town, turn left. you can't miss it!

BOKTOBERFEST - Shiner
BOKTOBERFEST

a yearly event that combines great beer, great food and great music (this year -2003- to feature Nickelback) come rain or shine, the act will go on.
expect long lines at the port-o-potties, but it's just a way to meet someone new, run into an old friend, or just stand impatiently with your legs crossed :-)

Address: Spoetzel Brewery.

Directions: just go to only intersection in town with street lights and hook a left. you can't miss it.

Howard's

after your tour at the brewery, it's a good idea to hit Howard's store for a brewsky on tap. you can get any of the shiner beers available. a pint for something like a buck and a quarter. it's basically a gas station, but for the small town of shiner, is also a movie rental place, convienent store, gas stop, beer stop, and during good weather, Howard's got a back porch with benches, a bbq pit and a stove for when it's a bit cooler.

great place to hang out and relax.

Address: on the main road

Directions: edge of town going towards gonzales
