Shiner, TX

Before the beer, there was the town.  The town that made the beer.  Shiner, TX.  Home of the folks that have been brewing Shiner Beer for over 100 years.  And, yes, they will let you move here.  The main event in town is to take a tour of the famous Spoetzl Brewery.  The tour is free and ends with free samples in the “hospitality suite.”  But they are just tastings so for a full pint, visit Howards, a gas station with a secret beer garten.

Since you came down here for the day, you probably want to eat.  For lunch, head to …. (I can’t help you here, more beer?)
