The Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas, has finally made some distribution inroads outside the state, but taste is sometimes as much about setting as it is about ingredients. Shiner Premium is a Texas classic, which has been bottled under various names before returning to the original label this year. This lager's been around since 1909, has been drunk by the rowdy and the lovelorn in the old country songs, and has been playing the accompaniment to BBQ since Sam Houston was a recent memory.
