Thanks so much, Chris and Jeff, for all the help. I believe they visited every single place you mentioned, plus some other stops that made it a great trip for them!
Great! Glad your folks enjoyed their visit and happy to see that they made the detour over to the city of Shiner. Thanks a bunch for the holiday photo! I haven't seen the Shiner ornaments before, so thanks a bunch for sharing that picture with us! Cheers,

Sifting through some pictures last night I ran across these that my dad took of my mom in Shiner, TX. She’s not really a drinker, but was quite taken with the brewery. One pic is of her going in; the next one shows her holding one of the several samples she was given inside. She’s a Shiner fan now. :)

Love that van.

Great photos Lorinda! Thanks for sharing these, but I'm not sure how my van wound up in that shot...

Never tried Shiner but I'm going to miss Alaskan Amber when I leave the state.

I'm considering moving to the Czech Republic so I thought I would czech out the beer--Pilsner Urquell is very good. Kinda like American beer but with flavor.

Kokanee in the US is swill. I had some in Jasper and I remember it being good but the stuff here is yucky.

There used to be a night club here in Anchorage that had a Budweiser tax--it was more expensive than the craft beers.

Best two beers I've ever tasted were Antarctica (from Brazil) and Bitburger Pilz (from Germany) during my travels shooting docs.

Hey Shiner Guys,

Can't get Shiner in Idaho or even the neighboring state anymore! I'm in Missouri right now--leaving tomorrow morning. Found me some Shiner Bock and am trying to get one of my friends to haul it home (I'm flying).

My question: Is it okay if Shiner gets warm? I've always been told not to let this precious stuff get warm but my pals tell me it'll be fine. I'm looking at 3-4 cases here so room is a problem or I'd buy some coolers and ice it down.

Yeah, it should be fine if by 'getting warm' you mean sitting around in the room. Try not to leave it baking in a hot garage for a month .... well, maybe I'd still drink it - but you probably wouldn't!

Thanks. My pals were trying to tell me it would be fine but I wanted to make sure. It'll be heading to the Northwest in the back of a pickup so should be fine if they don't drink it all when they stop for the nights... :)

Was just looking on their website, and it appears their territory is growing! They now show distribution of Bock, Blonde, Black and Hefeweizen in Pennsylvania... and say it is coming soon to New Jersey. Time to stock up!

Funny Lorinda, the same page shows that Bock is available in Idaho and the only neighboring state without it is Oregon.

BTW, I really don't like their new website. Not so easy to find useful info, and it's annoying to wait while it loads animations for every page.

Hey Boyd,
Yeah, I know. I think that's called adding insult to injury. ;)

I'm stuck at Springfield airport AGAIN, probably going to have to spend the night in Denver AGAIN. (Same thing happened to me last year.) I sure could use one of those Shiner's right now...

I bought up all the Bock they had at the Jubilee Store in Branson so I filled up a box with a pack of Shiner Blonde. I'm really looking forward to trying it, too.

In the past I have "imported" Shiner Bock and Hefeweizen from Maryland. But hopefully now I'll be able to get it in Philadelphia :-)

Air travel is hell...

Still no Shiner here.

Even though Whistler Lager was rated #1 in Canada I hated it; and so it's been Stella for me when I want a beer. Stella bought out Bud, by the way.

Got my son to bring some beer from Washington last week. So I'm taking some advice given me by O. Rex and doing a little photo journaling and what do I see? Shiner Beer is 100 years old! Happy Anniversary, Shiner!

I'm digging the new packaging as well. Looks pretty good in your hand there. Heh.
