A Shiner Farmhouse Ale Coming This Spring?

Shiner FM 966 Farmhouse Ale

Is Spoetzel Brewery (Shiner, TX) adding a farmhouse ale to the Shiner lineup?   Looks that way this spring. Shiner FM 966 Farmhouse Ale echoes a style brewed for centuries. Quite interesting from a brewery that has been predominantly producing lagers for quite some time.

A few centuries ago, during the cold winter months, farmhands in Europe brewed a ‘seasonal provision’ Farmhouse Ale to be enjoyed once spring rolled around. In the farmlands of Shiner, TX that tradition lives on which is why our tribute to this style uses Golding, Sterling and Meridian hops for a sweet yet lightly spiced flavor. Our incredibly refreshing farmhouse ale bears the name of the farm to market road just to the south of where our brewery has proudly stood for over 100 years.

Style: Farmhouse Ale
Availability: 24 oz bottles
Arrival: TBA

      Theyre producing them not only in 6 packs, but 22 oz bottles as well. 1 pint + 8 fl oz = 22 fl oz.
