Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale


It’s been a while, but this isn’t the first Shiner beer we’ve had on the site. Far from it actually; I reviewed the Shiner Family Reunion pack a while ago, which included the old standby Shiner Bock as well as other beers such as Hefeweizen and Kosmos Reserve. Shiner Bock does make an appearance at… → Read More

The Beer of the 2014 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival


I’ve been on the lookout for the full 2014 Epcot Food and Wine Festival menus, and they’re finally here! Instead of making educated guesses as to where these booths will appear like we did last year (which was a little hit and miss), I’m going to take them alphabetically. Note that if a booth doesn’t have… → Read More

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

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

Shiner Hefeweizen – a 10!


Wow! I tried this beer at dinner and it blew me away! I LOVED it! If you like Blue Moon, you need to find and taste this beer! I’ll be going back to the restaurant we went to tonight specifically because of this beer! woot!
