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.
Abita has quickly developed a place in my heart. Somewhat begrudgingly, I tried my first fruit beer a few months ago. Having seen Abita's Strawberry Lager on the shelf, and in the spirit of trying a little bit of everything, I picked a bottle up and began anticipating disappointment. If you've read the review, you will know that I was very pleasantly surprised. So much so, that I have tried numerous fruit beers in a short few months.
