Editorial Reviews

Mutineer Magazine
This book is exactly what you think it is, and is very good at what it does. Shiner Bock fans will absolutely love this.
beercook.com
For fans of Shiner beer and the Spoetzel Brewery, as well Texas history buffs, comes an entertaining read of the brewery's first century.
The Oregonian
This is a great-looking, big-format hardback with crisp, lavish design and graphics finally, a coffee table book for beer geeks. Better yet, Renfro captures the flavor of this much-loved regional brewery.
Fort Worth Star Telegram
An easy-flowing, beautifully designed coffee-table history that should stand up to scrutiny. It's a fun read, especially for Shiner fans.
Abilene Reporter News

The cover unfolds to become a 20-by-30-inch vintage Shiner poster. So the book is, in more ways than one, a work of art.

    Shiner

    brewed in TEXAS and without a doubt the best BEER in the USA I found things in the Book about Shiner I never knew and now I am more informed about the Great little Brewery in Shiner Texas.
