In this beer blog, we are talk about this new brand, which is Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale, coming out from Spoetzl Brewery or better known as Shiner from Shiner, Texas. This is their first Pale Ale and third ale. Well a little history of this brewery, they are a German base brewing style. They are the second oldest craft brewery behind Yuengling Brewery. This brewery is about two hours outside of Austin, Texas.
Here is the information from the bottle about the beer:
Wild Hare is a classic American Pale Ale – richly hopped, fruity and floral. Munich malt nicely balances the assertive character of the U.S. Golding and Bravo hop varieties that give this brew its signature bitterness and aroma. Enjoy!
This beer pours copper color with a constant head. Shiner Pale Ale smells of piney. Taste of this beer is closer to an English Pale Ale but has enough muscle to a west coast pale ale. This will make your normal american lager drinker to your hop head very happy drinkers . This is a very drinkable and session beer. For this being their first pale ale, Brewmaster did a very excellent job.
Here is a few places to go and get information on this great brewery:
In the end, this beer has a chance to be something out in the market. It has the old school or throwback look on the label that you would see back in the 1930’s to 1950’s. However, the most important is the beer that is inside the bottle, it is very drinkable but with enough favor that will make people happy and keep drinking it. This beer will be out in June in Chicago market. I am not sure about the rest of the market. You will be able to get it around the country. I love this beer and I am glad Shiner is doing something different. You know what to do. Go out and hunt this bunny down. Enjoy it! Drink it! Metal it! \m/
