Cheer was tasty this year.
1st year they made it, it was horrible. Last year was good but I do agree, this years is the best of the bunch.
I think I already said this in the thread but Shiner Cheer is AMAZEBALLS.
Gimme that over 90% of the beer other Texas craft brewers make any day of the week. *just reminded himself that he needs to stock up*
My mother-in-law bought a six pack of the Farmhouse for Christmas dinner. I liked it a lot. All the farmhouse flavors seemed to be there, it had a nice mouthfeel, and it was quite drinkable. Would buy some for myself.
Also, Shiner was a gateway for me, especially their anniversary series. Glad to see this thread exists.
I can attribute Shiner beers to my transition into craft beer and to this day I still get excited to see new stuff from them. I bought a six-pack of the Farmhouse and shared it with my family on Christmas Eve. My non-beer-drinking mom loved it and my sour-beer-loving brother loved it too. It's good stuff. Not the best or most exciting saison but it's a good beer and will probably be a gateway beer for a lot of people.
Im a fan of cheer, bock and ill stand by the black lager any day of the week for sure.
I'm drinking the first Shiner Bock in a long time, and it's actually not that bad. I had a Cheer about a month ago, and that was a surprise. Also, there's a lot of Shiner Bock going on on It's Always Sunny. Bumblebee Tuna.
finally got around to trying fm 966 (shiner farmhouse) tonight and its not bad. has some traditional saison characteristics, i mean its still a shiner, buts its a pretty good session beer.
I tried this last night and liked it also.. good stuff.
That's what I like about Shiner. You can throw back a 6 pk during a session and not have to worry about hangover, dehydration and taste bud burnout from all the hops and sours.
Hey, shouldn't there be a 104 coming out soon?
Do you know what style or is it possible the farmhouse is 104?
It says its a 'spring provisonal ale'.
Weren't the 90's and 100's always released in the Summer?
When did they change the recipe? Shiner Bock, for me, hasn't tasted as good as it had in the past. Way too metally lately
I don't know if it has changed, so much to me or if its just that I have tasted much better things and don't think its as."crafty" anymore.
Back in the 1990s... Shiner changed the recipe to their Bock. Lone Star had their "Natural Bock" which was a close approximation to the original Shiner Bock. At least from what people have told me... I was too young to drink back in that day and not even in Texas!
The new Lone Star Bock that just came out is just a cheap ripoff of the new Shiner Bock though.
And the expenesive rip off was Zeigen Bock. :O
actuially Ziegenbock is a rip of their own Amber bock which tastes nothing like shiner bock.
Actually they both came out around the same time and from different breweries. Both were trying to capitalize on Shiner's new success.
Had the Farmhouse and Bock yesterday in between many other big BA beers. Both where good. Surprised I liked the farmhouse considering I don't like that style. I don't like it enough to buy a 6'er but a single or 2 every now and then wouldn't be a bad thing.
Tried a new shiner that I've never seen before. Prickly Pear, it was ehh. Tasted good but lets just say it didn't taste much like a beer.
Never heard of that one.
It came in the 6 pack samplers this year, so you either had to buy the 6 to get 1, or a place that sells singles
Agreed completely. The first year was meh. Last year was 4 cases in my pantry. Isn't as good with 6 months on it, BTW.
This year was great too.
Farmhouse replaced the forgettable Dortmunder from the last two years.
Have ten more then I am writing on your face
I saw that Shiner 101 is going to be available in the family reunion packs coming out.... I'll have to pick some up.
If you're even in Plano Tx stop by Love & War. They had 6 Shiners on tap two nights ago, food is pretty tasty, descent live music. I had the Farmhouse, Blonde and Cheer.
Saw my first reunion pack with Shiner 101 in it today at an HEB.
Bohemian Black Lager is my fav from them, Can't really go wrong with that.
I can still drink a Shiner, Can't say that about BMC.
Just finished my keg of cheer the other day. It's good stuff. I had enough of it this year and don't want it for a while. I'm sure I'll pick up a six when it's out again this year though.
I know this will get shit on but... Shiner is canning Ruby Redbird. I couldn't get the video to embed.
I haven't tried Ruby Redbird yet, I'm not a big fan of grapefruits. I have friends that absolutely love the stuff though.
Wait, wait, wait... so that new (old) Shienr Premium is just a relabel of their blonde?
You're not suppose to notice that.
Shiner is now know as the General Motors of Beers.
Sweet! Perfect river beer.
