Texas tipple doesn’t get much press. And, in all honesty, it is probably because Shiner Bock is crap. (Note: I had a run in with a much larger lad in San Antonio after uttering that last bit of wisdom).

Shiner, luckily for all with any beer integrity, brews more than just the famed bock. Their Holiday Cheer could easily get an award for best dressed holiday drink. The nostalgic packaging has instant appeal, great type face, and the classic colors of winter celebration.

What’s behind the slick attire? “An old world Duckelweizen brewed with Texas peaches and roasted peacans.” A gentle reminder of Texas’ German heritage (which accounts for fantastic sausages) and Kosmos Spoetzl’s desire to bring Bavarian brewing tradition to the cleanest little City in Texas.

Remarkable, really, that they’ve been going in Shiner since 1909.
