Today’s Spoetzl Brewery is a far cry from the old tin shed where Shiner first flowed back in 1909. We think our founder, Kosmos Spoetzl, would probably be amazed at our state-of-the-art brewhouse. He’d also be happy to know we still brew every drop of Shiner right here in Shiner, Texas.
Born in Bavaria, Kosmos Spoetzl’s passion for beer carried him as far as Egypt before arriving in tiny Shiner, Texas. There, he purchased the town’s brewery and became Shiner’s first official brewmaster, a post that he held for nearly half a century. Today, we honor the man with every beer that comes out of the brewery bearing his name. Prosit!
We’re an independent brewery with a passion for handcrafting fine beers. When we started brewing way back in 1909, it was to create Old World-influenced beers for our family and friends. We’ve never lost that independent attitude and love for making unique, highly drinkable beers. We just have a lot more family and friends now.
