There is little doubt that 20 years ago San Antonio was a vast beer wasteland, as was most of the country. Craft brewing was still young in places like California, Colorado, and Oregon, and regional breweries like Spoetzl in Shiner and Yuengling outside of Philadelphia were doing what they could to remind the public that beer was allowed to have some flavor.
Today, the Shiner brands, owned by San Antonio-based Gambrinus Co., are stronger than ever with the frequent new releases of classic German and Czech styles and distribution to half the nation.
