For my money, Shiner Bock might be the best beer on planet Earth, but now, they’re getting into the hard seltzer mix.
Better late than never I suppose…
Texas’ Spoetzl Brewery, makers of the wonderful Shiner family of brews has just announced the launch of “Straight Shooter Hard Seltzer. Clocking in at 0 carbs, 0 sugar, 90 calories and 4.5% alcohol by volume, Shiner seems to be working with a pretty standard hard seltzer stat line, although for Shiner, they knew it had to be craft brewed.
According to Shiner brewmaster Jimmy Mauric, that was the main focus:
“When we set out to make our first hard seltzer we knew it had to be genuinely craft brewed. With that in mind, we use just a few simple ingredients and water sourced from our artesian well. We brewed it so it would live up to its name ‘Straight Shooter’— it is a straightforward, transparent, delicious, and refreshing craft brewed hard seltzer.”
Staring in late August, Straight Shooter Hard Selzter will hit shelves in four flavors: Wild Cherry, Lemonade, Mango, and Grapefruit/Lime
And if the hard seltzer competition wasn’t stiff enough, Topo Chico also announced they will be launching a hard seltzer product of their own.
