603 Brewery Street, Shiner, TX, 77984

Founded in 1909, the Spoetzl Brewery has ridden the success of Shiner Bock into national prominence. In 2004 it began counting down toward its 100th birthday by releasing a special new beer every year, each one reflecting a German heritage that dates back to the original Shiner Brewing Association.
