There is a micro-brew in Houston called St. Arnold's Brewing Company. The "Lawnmower" beer is one of the best beers that I've ever had. Real good stuff.

When did shiner bock change their recipe? It used to be much better 15ish years ago, now it tastes kinda soapy to me so I don't drink it much.

Celis gold was pretty good stuff too but I'm pretty sure they shut down years ago.

Celis is no longer in production in Austin--the pricks at Miller bought out Pierre and then shut down the brewery after running it for a short time. Really too bad for two reasons. One, damn fine Texas-made brew. Two, free beer after a tour of the brewery.

There is a bit of good news, though. IIRC, Pierre's daughter purchased the rights to the recipes and now has a small brewery out of Michigan producing Celis White and Celis Pale Bock. Unfortunately, those are the only two brews I've found that are available in Austin. They have the Grand Cru and Raspberry on tap at the brewery. And even more unfortunate is that the White doesn't quite have the same lovely taste as the version brewed in Austin in the early 90s. Here's a link: Link to Celis site

Real Ale Brewing Company, out of Blanco, does a few decent brews, but none seem to have quite the refinement of some of the quality microbrews to come out of the northwest. I haven't yet tried their seasonal porter; that might be a winner.

I have only had a few beers worse than Lone Star; they were the Nigerian domestics Star [lager] and Gulder [pilsner]....both laced with formaldehyde rather than making use of the modern technique of Pasteurization

I like Shiner ok. But I've recently discovered BJ's Brewery and even better than them, The Fredericksburg Brewing Co. in Fredericksburg, TX. They have got some great seasonal and year-round microbrews and pretty good german food too.

Shiner Bock and I really like the Shiner 96 when I can find it. My daughter bought me a wooden case of it for Christmas this year and it's damn fine stuff.

I'm suprised no one has mentioned the best beer ever made in Texas, Gilleys beer.


Oh wait, some of you aren't old enough to remember that.

I use to hate beer until I started drinking Shiner Bock in my freshman year of collage at UT. Bock back then (1983) was made once a year and was a special run it was not able to be found very widely (was only available in long necks and kegs, which the UT student union sold for $1 a pitcher on Wednesday nights, to say the least I never made it to Thursday morning classes). When I transfered up to TTU (mostly because of the Shiner ) I found out that you could not get it in Lubbock. When ever the TTU/UT football game was in Lubbock a bunch of my UT friend would road trip it up with a PU filled with long neck cases of Shiner Bock. We had 2 couches built out of cases in our house just so we could store it. Shiner Bock got so popular that they started making it all the time and the qualitity changed since the old way to make it was from the dregs left from the normal Shiner batches, the new stuff is purposely made now and is not as "heavy" and full bodied.


Now for the correct answer to the original question "My favorite Texas beer is a free beer ", otherwise I prefer '83 vintage Shiner Bock.

My favorite free beer was always a Texas Pride...
Link Posted: 4/8/2006 11:49:59 PM EDT
My favorite Texas beer is Bud Light, it is brewed in Houston. It may be a technicality, but the way I see it, it is just as Texan as I am.

Having grown up in Houston, I have many fond memories of driving all the way across town twice a day at rush hour from West Houston (nearly Katy) all the way across town to Deep Park and Pasadena to work summer jobs at the refineries for Brown & Root (now KBR).

Always remember getting to I-10 just before the turn to the high 610 bridge over the infamous Houston Ship Channel and viewing the huge Budwieser complex plant. and thinking ....

... "Brewed with Real Houston Ship Channel Water for a "unique" taste!!"

Hummm "Clean, Crisp Refreshing??????"

Needless to say, not much Bud on my drinking list whenever a Shiner is close by!

Spaten Helles ...... It aint Texan, but you can get it in little German Commuinites in Texas.

That Shiner 96 is some goood stuff. Just got a case of it.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 7:05:51 PM EDT
Yes, iam sure they take water strait out of the ship channel to brew Budweiser. And I dont seem to understand the obsession with Shiner. Ive had it a few times and if it were a cheap beer, it would be really good, but it is as expensive or even more so than Bud/ Bud Light. There seems to be somewhat of a blind following with Shiner. I think some people really like it, but many more pretend to like it because it is a "Texas Beer".
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 7:38:09 PM EDT
I almost forgot about the Celis brewery tour. That was a ton of fun...
Link Posted: 4/10/2006 5:50:10 AM EDT
Celis Pale Bock was my favorite Texas beer, hands down. I still drink it when I can find it, but technically its not a Texas beer anymore.

I'm mainly a Shiner Bock guy. I like Shiner Light okay too. I haven't seen Shiner 96 yet. I'll have to watch for that.
