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.


Spoetzl Brewery

The main event in town is to take a tour of the famous Spoetzl Brewery. Learn the history of this town, one of Texas’s favorite beers and even see the bottling process. Tours of the brewery are available Thursday – Sunday and can be reserved online. They are $25 each for the tour, plus you get some sweet swag and 3 beers.  It don’t get much better than that. Tours of the distillery are also available and can be booked in person on a first come first served basis. Check out the Spoetzl Tours website for combo tour packages.





For a more than just a tasting of beer, head to Howards. This gas station has draft Shiners, a secret biergarten outback and live music. If you’re looking for a bite to eat, head to nearby Luling for not one, but two amazing ‘que joints.
