What do you get when you combine a blonde lager from Texas’ oldest independent brewery with fresh strawberries from Poteet, Texas – the Strawberry Capital of the World? Shiner Strawberry Blonde. On shelves just in time for warm weather to arrive.
Shiner Strawberry Blonde started as part of our Brewer’s Pride Series – limited-run beers made in small batches and offered in our Family Reunion packaging. But this crisp and refreshing brew, made with a mix of pale and wheat malts – and those delicious strawberries – proved to be ripe for the drinking. So we made it our Summer Seasonal. To celebrate, we've given it brand new packaging.
Also getting a new look is Shiner Ruby Redbird. It gets its name from the Ruby Red Grapefruit, the State Fruit of Texas. We add ginger to give it a delightful but subtle kick. Ruby Redbird’s deep gold color and full body come from pure Munich malt and a combination of Mt. Hood, Citra and Cascade hops.----
Ruby started as a perfect beer for hot summer days, but now we’ve made it available all year.
