Shiner Beer crafts new barbecue joint at iconic Texas brewery
Lewis and Clark, Sonny and Cher, SpongeBob and Patrick. Duos float in and out of pop culture at hummingbird speed. But few have quite as much staying power as beer and barbecue. So, it’s only natural that one of Texas’ most iconic breweries would want to break out the smoker.
According to a release, Shiner Beer is untapping a new market with the recent grand opening of K. Spoetzl BBQ Co. Housed at the newly expanded Spoetzl Brewery, the eatery now welcomes carnivores seven days a week.
Pitmaster Tommy Schuette, the former proprietor of the Shiner Barbeque Co., is leading the charge with the state’s holy trinity of smoked meats, including brisket, sausage, and ribs. Other favorites like pulled pork and chicken are served alongside a meaty assortment of salads, loaded potatoes, and sandwiches.
Of course, no Texas barbecue joint can get away with skimping on the sides. Potato salad and pinto beans are served throughout the week, but weekend guests get a little extra. Diners can also opt for green beans, coleslaw, creamed corn, and giblet rice from Thursday through Saturday.
K. Spoetzl BBQ is now open daily. Hours are 10 am-4 pm, so plan accordingly.
