The Shiner Series: FM 966 Farmhouse Ale

18 Apr


I live and work in the country. A small Texas town similar to Shiner. When I give directions to folks from a big city, referencing a Farm to Market road is often met with a confused question mark. FM? What’s that? Always makes me giggle. 🙂

This ale is named after FM 966 located in Shiner, TX. I’d never tried a Farmhouse Ale before, but I really enjoyed this special Spring brew. This ale is super drinkable and delicious – smooth, refreshing, and perfect to sip on a warm Spring day in Texas!

From the label: “A few centuries ago, during the cold winter months, farmhands in Europe brewed a ‘seasonal provision’ Farmhouse Ale to be enjoyed once spring rolled around. In the farmlands of Shiner, TX that tradition lives on which is why our tribute to this style uses Golding, Sterling and Meridian hops for a sweet yet lightly spiced flavor. Our incredibly refreshing farmhouse ale bears the name of the farm to market road just to the south of where our brewery has proudly stood for over 100 years.”
