    I had the opportunity to buy a six-pack at the Krogers in E. Peoria, Illinois while visiting my folks. Should have bought it. Many regrets...:(

    Keeping it firearm related of course...

    Don't drink Bock and use a firearm...
    Bock rhymes with Glock...
    Bock Cans make good plinking targets... Bottles don't...

    There, I did my good deed for the day.

    Thank you Baba Louie.

    I bought some on the way back from the firing range the other day. Fantastic stuff, this is going to be my beer of choice from now on.

    Last time I was TDY to Raytheon in Greenville, TX...

    I filled my luggage and carry-on bags with Shiner Bock.

    TFL did teach me something!

    Keep a sharp eye on the place where you buy Shiner. They have a pretty small brewery, so they only make one kind at a time and alternate between 4 or 5 different brews on a regular basis. Every once in a while they will run a batch of something special between the regular runs.

    Good stuff! ;)

    I have yet to try it. It would be easier if I knew where I could find it in Arizona.

    Be careful!
    When I first joined TFL, I only had a couple of guns. Then I had to buy a cabinet to put them in. Soon I needed another.
    TFL crowd raved about Shiner so I got some. Now I need another fridge.

    Never tried it but it seems it is fast becoming the official alcoholic beverage around. Shiner Bock Ale you say. Hmmmm!

    I just hope that Dr. Pepper is the official soft drink here.:D

    Shiner Bock = Good

    Shiner Blond = Bad


    here in OK it is everywhere but you have to get in good with the store owner to keep a few cold for you.

    quote "...Shiner Bock Ale..." endquote

    Shiner is admittedly the equivalent of mother's milk, however it is just 'Shiner Bock'. A bock is by definition a lager, not an ale.

    I guess i'm just lucky.. Shiner Bock is available in almost every store, quick-stop, bar and restauraunt here in Houston.. I guess that makes sense, since we're only about 2 hours from the brewery!!

    It's funny, I regularly make trips from Houston to San Antonio.. Shiner is about halfway between them, about 20mi S of Interstate 10... Maybe I'll make a pilgrimage after I get my TFL Alumnus stuff..

    Sippin' a cool one now... :cool: :cool:
