Shiner Prickly Pear Lager

By Bob on July 11, 2013 4:23 AM

I've never had a beer where I needed to watch out for the thorns...until I tried Shiner Prickly Pear Lager. OK, I'm kidding. There aren't any stickers, but this seasonal beer from the folks at the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas is definitely different.

Maybe THAT'S why I like it. It's a multi-layered golden lager brewed with multiple malts including caramel, wheat and two-row barley alongside Citra and Golding hops - and - you guessed it - the red fruit of the prickly pear cactus. The prickly pear gives the beer a fruity aroma reminiscent of strawberries, watermelon and honeydew. Think Blue Moon with a Texas Shiner Prickly Pear Lager - 300.jpgtwang, y'all.

 

Shiner's Prickly Pear Lager is being sold as the Brewer's Pride addition to the Shiner Family Reunion Variety Packs (Translation: It isn't available in its own 6-packs.)

 

Grab it while you can - because this brew will only be around until Shiner's next seasonal surprise. I've got my fingers crossed for something like bacon or chicken fried steak.

 

Playing Favorites is a new column where Charlotte and I pull back the curtain on our Boomer lives to show you what we're into these days. It may be a movie we've discovered. A new restaurant. Great food. Interesting drink. A song we can't get out of our heads...it could be anything. It's all about discovery and the stuff that makes us happy. So, step inside our lives and let us show you around. Don't mind the dust, the housekeeper comes on Thursday.
