MIKE'S BEER BEAT                                                                                
New or notable, classic or quaffable, Mike is pouring a glass of it.

Beer: Shiner Strawberry 
Variety: Ale
ABV: 4.3%
Brewer: Spoetzl/Shiner

Mike Sez: I’m sure most of you have had Shiner Bock. Well, that Texas brewery makes several other beers and just added this Strawberry Blonde Ale to its seasonal roster. Just as you can’t listen to the Beatles and Tom Petty all the time, you can’t just drink IPAs, right? So, just as I give a listen to new bands like Fontaines DC and Wet Leg, I decided to give this brew a try.

Conclusion: While I wouldn’t want to drink Strawberry Blonde forever, it’s a light, flavorful alternative to your everyday pale ale or pilsner. The aroma reminds me of Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries. But the flavor is tangy, not sweet. Actually, this might be a good beer to drop a bit of champagne or sparkling wine into. The strawberry letter for this beer? B.
FEATURED PLAYLIST: FEBRUARY NEW MUSIC

Today we present you with the playlist payoff, a full load of soulful, somber, rockin' and slammin' tuneage. All you have to do it hit play and crank the volume.
