Shiner Is Great Town To Visit


Shiner, Texas was incorporated in 1890. Like other small towns in Texas, Czech and German immigrants soon became the dominant ethnic groups, and Shiner developed a cohesive Czech community that still heavily influences the town's culture.

Shiner is the home of the Spoetzl Brewery Company, which is the oldest independent brewery in Texas. The brewery is most well known for producing Shiner Bock beer, which is sold in 41 states.

The downtown section of Shiner has many old buildings housing local businesses operating small retail shops.
