I am from Philadelphia and stopped here on vacation. I enjoyed the tour and the samples. All the employees have a passion for their jobs and it shows when you talk with them. I am a Shiner fan from now on. 😁

Interesting tour of historic brewery revealing the background of one of Texas' finest beers. You history lesson of the area and a walking tour of the entire brewing process. It was impressive to see their growth and the technology that is used by the brewer.
