They serve beer at the Texans games? I thought they only had soda, water, and Budweiser products. I have yet to see a Shiner there.

Shiner is indeed sold at Reliant, although it would be nice if they would expand to more offerings from Shiner besides just Bock.

Bud Light quality?? That's an oxymoron if I have ever seen one LOL. If Busch Light is worse I don't even want to imagine how awful that stuff must be.

Just drink tap water Bill. It probably has the same effect and is even cheaper.

Yes, I admit I am a beer snob.

They have 14oz $5 beers. I drank them on Saturday. They had the same thing last year too. $5 14oz drafts, it's nothing new.
