Default Shiner Seasonals

If anybody can get ahold of Spoetzel Brewerie's Shiner Dunkelweizen or Shiner '96, do yourself a favor and give them a swig. the '96 is a Marzen, and from what i've been told, it tastes like the Shiner Bock did whenit used to be seasonal. the '96 is pretty damn good. the Dunkelweizen used to be called the Winter Ale. tasty too!
don't let the '96 label fool you. Texas alcohol laws are goofy, so it says it's a marzen style "ale". but, it's a lager!

My folks are coming up from Austin over Christmas. I was going to have them bring me a sixer of St. Arnold's Christmas Ale, if they can get it there. Maybe I'll have them pick me up some of that Shiner Dunkelweizen and '96!

they should have no problem getting St. Arnold's Christmas Ale. St. A's just came out with Divine Reserve barleywine. they only made 365 some-odd cases. tough to find.
the '96 will be available until 12/31, so they should be able to get that too.

tell them to bring you some Real Ale Pale Moon Rye Ale and Brewhouse Brown Ale! you'll love them for it......

well, Spec's in Beaumont doesn't carry Real Ale, don't know about Houston Spec's? if and when i can find Real Ale, it's at Central Market. my wife went a few weekends ago and all they had was 2 sixers of Rio Blanco Pale Ale. so she snagged 'em for me. beggars can't be choosers right?
the Ginger Man has 3 or 4 Real Ale's on tap. one's the kick-ass seasonl Shade Grown Coffee Porter.....mmmmmm.......

Sounds like I'm gonna have to hit the Ginger Man.

A bit off topic, but it sure would be nice to have some "season" to go with all these seasonal beers...it's just hard to get in the spirit when's it's still 90 out. I'm going wade fishing tomorrow and it's a toss up whether to wade wet or not...in the middle of November.
