Shiner Beers Releases New Shiner 1909

The independent, family-owned makers of the iconic Shiner Bock, announce a new beer honoring their 112-year history. Shiner 1909 is a small-batch lager brewed with heritage ingredients celebrating the history, endurance, and Texas heritage of the Spoetzl Brewery.

Shiner 1909

Every drop of Shiner beer is proudly brewed and bottled in Shiner, Texas at the same
brewery founded in 1909 by a group of Czech and German settlers. In 1914, a Bavarian
named Kosmos Spoetzl joined the Shiner brewery, finding success using his signature
recipe, a combination of old-world Bavarian techniques and his own secret, innovative
twist. Kosmos created a legacy with Shiner beers that became a cult classic in Texas and
beyond. Today, Shiner Bock is the #1 craft beer in Texas.

Inspired by the simple ingredients Shiner’s brewers used in 1909, their founding year,
Shiner 1909 is crafted with Heritage 2-row barley, Noble hops, Shiner’s proprietary lager
yeast and water from the same artesian well the founders discovered over a century ago.
The result is a light-bodied lager with a toasty aroma, rich malt flavor and a crisp, refreshing finish.

“We’re so proud to launch Shiner 1909 in celebration of the brewery’s rich history. For 112
years, Shiner has brewed flavorful, refreshing and sessionable beers, becoming a favorite
not only of Texans but of beer lovers nationwide. With this new release, we’re paying
respect to our past while toasting to the future, and we’re making it available year-round
so we’ll all be able to celebrate our birthday every day of the year,” says Matt Pechman,
Spoetzl Brewing’s Head of Marketing.

Shiner 1909 (4.5% ABV) is available now nationwide and comes in 6 or 12-bottle packs.
