Default In Praise of Shiner Bock

I have been reading about this beer for years but have never seen it in a store here in NorCal.

While at the local grocery store, I was amazed to see two 6's on the shelf. being curious, I bougt them home for a taste.

I am very pleased.

Not as hoppy as I might like, but smooth, semi-full bodied (for the style) and downright tasty.

I can see what all the fuss is about.

I doubt it will be taking the place of my local brews but you folks from Texas can be rightfully proud.

Now Lone Star is a whole nother subject

Cheers,

knewshound

I tried Shiner Bock on draft at a restaurant and I loved it! It's a fairly mild mannered beer but it sure went down easy. I could get used to drinking it on a regular basis for sure.

I've been pretty burned out on it for a while because it was one of the first and most popular non-bmc beers we could get for a while. I drank a lot of it back in the day, but then they changed their recipe and I moved on to bigger and hoppier things....

But I do like them to drink on the river where you can't bring bottles, they're the only canned beer we can get in OK that has any good flavor at all.

I drank a couple in Tennesee last time I was there (October) but the Yazoo Double IPA caught my attention with aggression and I couldn't stop putting them down.

Shiner Bock was one of my first "real" beers, and I used to drink it all the time(always a better choice then the budmilcoors) but have since moved on to the bigger and tastier brews. Not to say I don't drink it, just not as much.

Now Ziegenbock, there is a great texas brew! May be bottled by the same people as Budwieser, but it must be done so on the opposite side of the factory, cause they are nothing alike! Both Shiner and Ziegen are a bargin price wise, so you can't go wrong with either.

Now back in the day Lone Star made a bock that was even better than Shiner, we all thought. Plus it was a buck cheaper per sixer.

I grab a sixxer of Ziegenbock Amber every Friday afternoon. Very smooth, refreshing beer after I mow the yard, wash the cars, etc.

Also, the newer beers from Shiner are good, too.

Shiner Hefe is good. They also have a good kolsch and an excellent Dunkelweizen. The 96 is decent, too.

Shiner Bock is my favorite beer to go with Barbeque. Whenever I'm in Texas I always get brisket with a Shiner.
