When I got tired of Shiner Bock everyday, I tried the Shiner Blonde, then their seasonals and commemorative series. I […]

I’ve decided that instead of trying to update my new brewery post every other 5 seconds with updates from all the breweries and brewpubs, I would start a weekly (or every few days, depending on how much news there is) feature that puts all the news in one place.
