The Spoetzl Brewery recently released a new brew – Shiner FM 966 Farmhouse Ale. It’s the second brew we’ve developed in our Ale House (following Wild Hare Pale Ale). Shiner FM 966 is the new spring seasonal and is available through March.
A few centuries ago, during the cold winter months, farmhands in Europe brewed a ‘seasonal provision’ Farmhouse Ale to be enjoyed once spring rolled around. In the farmlands of Shiner, TX, that tradition lives on. Which is why our tribute to this style uses Golding, Sterling and Meridian hops for a sweet yet lightly spiced flavor. Our incredibly refreshing Farmhouse Ale bears the name of the farm to market road just south of where our brewery has proudly stood for over 100 years.
