Schlitz, wearing its original Milwaukee label, is made by the Pabst brewery in San Antonio, and might only be available in Texas and nearby states. It is priced lower than the Big Three (Bud/Miller/Coors), is not available in Light, and is much better than the Big Three. So for a decent beer at a decent price, Schlitz is a very good choice. Give it a try.

It is not the "beer that made Milwaukee famous", although I have heard that the Milwaukee brewery is also making a premium-price beer using their traditional label.

That's incorrect. I'm aware of the Czech brew but what's sold in the UK is the same (lousy) beer that is sold here. It's brewed in England by Belgium-based Anheuser-Busch InBev. While we're talking about "American" megabrewers, let's not forget that SABMiller is based in the UK and Molson Coors is 50% Canadian: something like 80% of America's beer sales are made by foreign-based companies. That's why I'm a big supporter of small, locally owned microbreweries.

CoorsI have yet to find a great Texas-made beer
There are many, many good beers brewed here in Texas. You don't even have to look outside of San Antonio to try them. Pay a visit to Freetail, Tap Exchange, Flying Saucer, Alamo Drafthouse or any of the other local beer joints and give Texas beers a chance to show that they're better than any megabrew.

Ranger Creek abd Freetail beers are delicious. Always fresh and locally made worth the extra bucks to actually taste your beer. Also covenant hill, real ale, and jester king are real good. Bud and miller/coors have low quality beers with ridiculous advertising budgets that dont make up for taste. Branch out of the monopoly beers abd support your mom n pop breweries.

Whatever it is, it comes from Mexico. And I can't bring in a 12-pack. But liquor wholesalers can bring in truckloads, and then double the price. Thanks for the Free Trade Agreement, guys.

There is a new beer coming out later this year -- called Lobo by the Pedernales Brewing Company in Fredericksburg. Promises to be very good. Otherwise, I recommend Real Ale Brewing.

In the old days of Austin we drank Schlitz, Lone Star, or Texas Pride. Every now and then we would load up the car for a trip to Brownwood or Spicewood to stock up on Coors because it was not available for sale in Austin.

Of beer made in Texas, probably Shiner or Franconia (McKinney, Texas).

I never liked Lone Star. It's too Keystone/Natty lightish. I don't get the appeal.
