What a load of ignorant crap. Lone Star is on par with Bud/Miller/Coors, and Shinerbock is a step above. But there is a growing number of craft breweries in Texas with quite a good following, and new ones opening every month or so. We just had 8th Wonder Brewery open up in Houston last month, and they have a few good ones. Saint Arnold is a solid brewery. Austin is booming with a variety of breweries. Live Oak and Thirsty Planet are great, and Jester King could possibly be a top 10 craft brewery in the country. JK does a great job of variety and consistency at a high level for a craft brewery.
You simply don't have an industry growing like this if everyone drinks Shiner and Lone Star.
I had nothing to with that post about beer- I love all beers. Good friend of mine brews Boner Beer- heard of it?
