Shiner Bock is the flagship beer of Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas. German and Czech immigrant began brewing it in 1913. It’s known for having German hops as an ingredient.

I grew up in Texas. Having watched hundreds of Shiners disappearing with family and friends, I made it a priority on my list of beers to test for gluten.
