San Antonio's Freetail Brewing Co. is something of a hometown hero for beer drinkers in the South Texas region. All reputable stores and locations in the region carry the famed and respected Freetail brews. So, when on a recent trip to San Antonio's Flying Saucer, I was intrigued to see Freetail's Tropical Punch Bexarliner (pronounced "Bear-liner", more on that here) on their menu and knew I had to try it.
Another month is in the books and 2017 is flying by. I reviewed a total of 15 brews in the month of June! These rankings highlight my thoughts of each beer from worst to first and are purely my opinion. You may not agree, and that's completely fine!
Fugli embraces the traditional bitter hoppy-ness of an IPA but brings a unique twist to the table. In counteracting the traditional flavors with a slightly citrusy, sweet taste, Oskar Blues have developed a beer that can appeal to those (like me) who are not fans of the growing trend of bitterness.
I was walking through my local Total Wine and More collecting beer to drink and review and the cartoony dog on a blue can caught my eye. I was intrigued and had to pick it up. Immediately, the image of the can blew up on my Instagram account. Seemingly this can was stealing everyone's attention (kudos to whoever designed this) and so I had to see if the brew could live up to the hype.
Shiner's Family Reunion is a combination six-pack including a variety of beers brewed by the Spoetzl Brewery. Having now tried all six beers from this six-pack, it's time to break down each brew in a worst to first.
The Spoetzl Brewery, based in Shiner, is one of the better known breweries in the state of Texas. While its year-round Shiner Bock is probably its best known product, Shiner has developed a reputation for creating great seasonal and limited run brews.
In 2016, Paulaner produced 1 million hectoliters (thats 26,417,205.2 gallons) of beer which is consumed in over80 countries. This translates to 211,337,641.6 pints of Paulaner consumed in one calendar year, which is fairly impressive in my eyes.
