So besides the classic Shiner Bock, the Ruby Redbird quickly became my 2nd favorite Shiner beer. It really is the perfect summertime beer – the hints of ginger and grapefruit in this light and refreshing brew are to die for and when paired with particular foods, really brings home a brilliant flavor profile. And as a proud Texan, (if you couldn’t tell) the fact that Texas Ruby Red Grapefruits are used, makes it even more awesome. I haven’t seen them in the store the past few weeks, so sadly it looks like my Ruby Redbird enjoyment was shortlived. But hopefully we’ll see this seasonal brew again next summer – if you still find some, definitely try it while you can!
PS: I’m SO excited to announce that at the end of June, I’ll be visiting the legendary Shiner, TX!! I can’t wait to tour the brewery and see the homeland of my favorite brand of brew – and can’t wait to share it with yall! 🙂
