Sounds like fun! When you are done at the brewery, go check out Howard's. From the brewery, go to the stop light and turn right. It's a little way's down, on the right - the free-standing convenience store/gas station. They have draught beer and a great little biergarten in the back.

Is Antiques, Art, and Beer still open? Nice place to stop as well. Fairly unique.

On some week day nights there is live music in the area.... ole Moulton bank, Mama's Pizza in Schulenburg ... Ask around.

I played quarters on the bar in the brewery for about 2 hours one afternoon. I think we were supposed to get 1 or 2 samples, but I must have had about 30.

Well, I did go and I had a blast. It cost me a bit. I loaded up on Shiner Gear and things for my Man Cave. Thanks for the input, I made a whole day of it there.

Glad to hear you had a good time up there. It's been years since I lived in Texas, and I miss my Shiner Bock.
