Has anybody seen Rainier Beer in HEB or anywhere in SA? I'd hate to make it back over there after all these months with no way to get a little vitamin R. HEB's website doesn't list what they keep in stock... anybody been down the beer aisle lately?

If not HEB, then maybe Central Market

I've never ben able to find any Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve locally, which was my favorite brew when I was stationed in Idaho; so I think it'd be tough to find any Rainier but if you do then let me know!

Cheers! M2

It's owned by Pabst, which I'm pretty sure is headquartered or has a big operation in SA. I'll get the answer whether it's available or not really soon. It would be nice to know ahead of time because a few cans may come along in my checked luggage if the stuff isn't sold over there.

If it's owned by Pabst, then it's brewed by Miller

But isn't it regional, like Henry Weinhard's?

Seriously, 5 clicks total (including the Google search for "rainier beer") and I was able to determine "Texas: We are sorry, but there were no distributors located within the state you selected. Please select another state."

Rainier

I didn't think they still made Rainier? Didn't their brewery in Seattle close down?
