Still operating as the oldest independent brewery in Texas, the Spoetzl Brewery stands as a beacon to all lovers of specialty hand-crafted beers.

First founded in 1909, the brewery would soon come under the stewardship of Bavarian brewer Kosmos Spoetzl, who helped to create one of the most iconic brews in Texas.

Offering two tours on each weekday and a gift shop, the Spoetzl Brewery is an important stop for all beer-lovers and others who just love touring small Texas towns like Shiner.
