Shiner Brewer’s Pride Selection: Old-Time Alt


The sixth and final member of the Shiner Family Reunion is the first brew from the Brewer’s Pride collection. Shiner calls this one its Old-Time Alt, or altbier. As far as I know this is the first altbier on Beers and Ears, so let’s start with a description from the bastion of truth and knowledge,… → Read More

Shiner Kosmos Reserve


Shiner Kosmos Reserve, named after Kosmos Spoetzel, is the fifth of six beers in the Shiner Family Reunion six pack. Kosmos Spoetzel was the first Shiner brewmaster and also the namesake of the Spoetzel Brewery. Here’s the label text: Kosmos Spoetzel knew how to brew great beer. Born in Bavaria, Kosmos’ mastery of German brewing… → Read More

Shiner Hefeweizen


Ed reviewed Shiner Hefeweizen (originally called Honey Wheat) back in December and loved it. Since it’s part of the Shiner Family Reunion, now it’s my turn to try this one. It’s a nice shade of golden orange and a bit cloudy; flavors of wheat and lemon are dominant in this beer. It’s fairly light, but… → Read More

Shiner Blonde


Shiner Blonde is the third beer I’m trying out of the Shiner Family Reunion six pack (previously tasted: Shiner Bock and Shiner Bohemian Black Lager). It’s a pale lager that to me doesn’t impart a whole lot of flavor. It’s a little sweet, a little malty, and a whole lot of meh. There’s nothing wrong… → Read More

Tropical Mango Ale

St. John’s Brewers: Tropical Mango Ale


Summer is officially here and what better way to beat the heat then with an ice cold beer.  Like most people, I spend a good amount of time outside during the summer months.  Due to the heat and a variety of other reasons, I tend to shy away from big full-bodied beers.  Instead, I’m constantly… → Read More

Shiner Bohemian Black Lager


Shiner Bohemian Black Lager is the second beer in the Shiner Family Reunion six pack (I previously reviewed Shiner Bock). This beer, also known as a Schwarzbier, was first brewed for Spoetzel Brewery’s 97th anniversary, and is a somewhat unusual style. It’s a lager beer, but has some of the smells and flavor of a stout… → Read More

Shiner Bock


I purchased a six pack called the Shiner Family Reunion; it contains six different beers from the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, TX; I also had one of these at the House of Blues the other night when I saw Richard Cheese. Since this is the most common Shiner beer you’ll come across, I decided to… → Read More

Summit Brewing Unchained Series

Summit Unchained Series #6 Gold Sovereign


Summit’s First brew to use 100% organic malt that was malted the old fashioned way: by hand on the floor. The recipe for this Pale Ale was inspired from Victorian era beer. There is definite hop forward flavor to this beer with a bready malt balancing the delicate fruit flavors of pear, apricot and spicy… → Read More

Boulevard Smokestack Series Dark Truth Stout


Boulevard’s Smokestack Series Imperial Stout is made with English malts, German hops and Belgian yeast. Would that mean if it were to be sold in Epcot it could be sold in the UK, Germany and France pavilions? Well probably not since it’s made in Kansas City. The Roasted English malts give this beer a rich… → Read More

Saint Arnold Fancy Lawnmower and Weedwacker


This article started as a review of Weedwacker; however, Weedwacker and Fancy Lawnmower share the same formula except for the yeast used. Having not tasted Lawnmower either, this has turned into a double-fisted review; Lawnmower in one hand and Weedwacker in the other. Let’s start with Fancy Lawnmower, a Kölsch-style beer. It’s golden, crystal clear,… → Read More
