It's out with the old and in with the new at the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas. The brewery, home to Shiner Beer, is making Shiner Cheer, a seasonal brew to replace its now discontinued Shiner Dunkelweizen, a dark wheat beer.
The new brew is quite different from other Shiner beers. Although a dark wheat beer like its predecessor, it boasts an extra taste of Texas: It's brewed with pecans and Stonewall peaches from the Texas Hill Country. This delicious, fruity beer delivers remarkably pleasant peach and apricot flavors, with light spice, caramel and toffee notes. Hints of roasted pecans show up in the finish.
