NewsMore of a general story today, something that I have been hearing a lot in the past couple weeks, and that is that because of the rise in ethanol use for fuel, the cost of beer may be going up. This is due to the fact that they use some of the same ingredients, such as corn…thats all really, discuss amongst yourselves.
- The beer we are talking about today is Shiner Hefe-Weizen, produced by Spoetzl Brewing Company in Shiner, Texas. This is also the oldest independent brewery in Texas, having been incorporated in 1909.
- You can find it in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin
- The vitals: 5.6% ABV, brewed year round.
- The look: hazy, which is exactly how it should look.
- The taste: Actually I find it rather citrusy, a lot of orange seems to come through.
- This beer is not pasteurized, which means it is not heated up right after bottling, so the yeast should be alive in the bottle.
- The label on this one is also pretty cool, it has a character on it named Flip, which at first is a little trippy because he looks like a guy with to head attached at the top of the head.
