I'm definitely not a beer snob/probably have bad taste, since I don't even like most IPAs. And I don't think of this as a local beer, but after a month in Nevada, I am really missing the availability and cheapness of Shiner. I love how it's the same price as Bud Light at most Texas bars. It's probably my favorite beer simply because it's the first one I liked.
I went to a bar on Friday where Bud Light draft was $9 and a shot of well whiskey was $10. Can't wait to go back to Texas!!!
Austin Amber is fine by me! I also like Fireman's 4, Pearl Snap Pils, and Thirsty Goat. I also like that Shiner is one of the cheaper options. Their various other beers are surprisingly good.
For those from out of state, Lone Star is 'the national beer of Texas' and it's basically PBR with less hipster cred. Fantastic 'well I guess I'm getting hammered tonight' beer.
Ooh, I forgot about Thirsty Goat! Also one of my faves. And I agree, Lone star is definitely the PBR of Texas.
Do we know if there will be beer at the July 26 shindig?
