Liquor, Beer, and Wine Reviews
We drink, we review, you read

Ever wanted to know what "normal" people thing of all those tasty alcoholic beverages out there? Were you curious what a 1982 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild Paulliac tastes like? Maybe Keystone Light is something you've been curious about trying lately. Or perhaps you've been wanting to try some Macallan 18.

Our goal here is to inform and education you, while giving you honest feedback so that you may thoroughly enjoy your intoxication. Check your butt hurt at the door, because sarcasm and bluntness is going to reign supreme.

Review schedule will be released once we get going, but the tentative plan is to have 5-6 reviews a week, one per day, with probably all but 1 review going to weekly contributors, and the final spot being reserved for a guest writer which will rotate.

Unsweetened Ginger Ale + Light Beer =

Shiner Ruby Redbird



Shiner and I used to be pretty good buddies. Shiner Bock is probably the defacto beer of Texas. And they've put out some pretty good to excellent brews in the past few years (Shiner Black, Shiner Oktoberfest, Shiner 99 Helles Lager, Shiner Frost/Dortmunder Ale, etc.) On the other hand, something hasn't been quite right in the house of Shiner. First there was Smokehaus...the beautiful Helles tainted with what tastes like Liquid Smoke. Then there was Holiday Cheer...I don't think I need to bring that review up again.

And then there's this. I don't even know what to do with this. Thankfully, I was able to buy a single bottle, so I don't have five more of these sitting in my fridge, staring at me every time I open the door, until I can pawn them off on unsuspecting houseguests.

Shiner Ruby Redbird tastes like you mixed a light beer (Shiner Blonde?) with an unsweetened ginger ale. It's not bad, but it's not exactly good either. Heck, it might even go well with some asian foods...but the beer of summer, it's not.

Next summer, just bring back Shiner 99. Please?

I'm going to go wait for Real Ale Lost Gold and Saint Arnold Weedwacker.
