In fact, you’d miss it if you blinked while zipping by on either US Highway 90A or State Highway 95, where the town sits at the crossroads, off the beaten path between Houston and San Antonio. But, the 2.4 square miles of Shiner, Texas sure packs a wallop!
Begun with a 250 acre donation by Henry Shiner as a railroad right of way, the “Cleanest Little City in Texas” now boasts over 2,000 residents and serves as home to several renowned commercial enterprises, not the least of which is the K. Spoetzl Brewery home of Shiner Beer. But, while Shiner both the beer and the town may be the most recognized name around these parts, we have a number of claims to fame, so if you are in the area, stroll around town, talk to a few locals and don’t forget to have yourself a cold Shiner beer. After all, it’s just not a visit to Shiner without enjoying a Shiner!
