I’m currently in the great state of Texas visiting our friends at Rackspace in San Antonio. I stopped by a carry out to pick up some beer and I came across Shiner Smokehaus, a special Mesquite Smoked Helles Style Sommer Bier released this year by Spoetzl Brewery out of Shiner, TX. The flavor is very unique and quite smoky.

Brewed with pale malt that’s been smoked with native mesquite in the backyard of our little brewery in Shiner, Texas (pop. 2,070), this refreshing Helles-style beer has a smoky flavor that goes great with all the flavors of summer. Prosit!
