    Saw this a couple days back at HEB in Barton Creek. Shiner Farmhouse Ale is on the shelves in 12pk and sixers, but I wasn't able to try one. Not sure if this is their spring seasonal or not, I don't see anything on their site about it. I doubt this is a regional brew, packaging is black and gold-ish.

    I bought a 6-pack of it in South Dakota. I really like it. Very satisfying.

    Yes it's a spring seasonal. There are only a couple farmhouse ales I really enjoy but this one was by far the worst I've had. Not a fan at all.

    I didn't get anything "farmhouse" about it at all, for me it was just another uninteresting, unsatisfying brew from Shiner, that seems more and more "Budweiser" like each time I try their beer. :slight_frown:

    Bought one in Wichita today. Not bad, but it could have been much better.

    Saw this on the shelf at HEB in San Antonio on December 28th while I was visiting there so I picked up a 6 pack. Not my favorite but it certainly wasn't bad either.
