We love booze—remember last year’s booze cruise? So we were thrilled to find out that Shiner, Texas’ oldest independent brewery, is finally bringing its beers to New York.
The brand’s signature brew, Shiner Bock, has been a Southern staple for decades, known for its deep amber color and distinctive flavor, which is perfect for pairing with beef ribs or brisket.
It’s no surprise then that Hill Country Barbecue Market is one of the first places to carry Shiner in New York. In addition to their Longhorn Cheddar mac & cheese and braised collard greens with bacon, Hill Country now offers four Shiner beers on tap (Shiner Bock, a pilsner an IPA and a seasonal beer).
Shiner has also found a new home at VICE, where it has a branded section titled “What the Bock,” which features posts on tattoos, barbecues and asks locals who they would most like to have a beer with (answers include Kurt Cobain, Dustin Hoffman, Eazy-E and God).
We can’t wait to get down to Hill Country or pick up a pack of their golden pale ale, which would be perfect to make our favorite booze-cruise recipe: the beer-onion soup sandwich.
Here’s to the first day of Summer.

Os Gemeos are the latest artists to be tapped by Hennessy for a limited edition bottle. Whether or not any of the artists actually drink the stuff is up for debate. Nice display packaging though. Big thanks to our connect in Champagne for the pic.

Got an advance four-pack of this yesterday, and have to say that it is delicious. More subtle than any cider we’ve tasted in the US market, Cidre is a European-style cider crafted from hand-picked apples taken from orchards in wine regions in North and South America. Stella Artois Cidre will be fermented in Baldwinsville, New York, and the 4.5% alcohol means that you can have a couple with mom and she won’t talk any more or any less than she already does.
In stores in 26 states on May 13th.
