A Weirdly Named Texas Beer Has Been Named Top 30 Delicious in America
When you think beers from Texas, San Antonio, TX -based Lone Star usually comes up. Shiner Bock, straight outta Shiner, TX tends to be top of mind as well. But it's actually a lesser-known, weirdly named beer out of Austin, TX that was recently named one of the 30 most delicious beers in the U.S.
Lone Star Original is known for it's iconic name and light crisp taste, and is without a doubt a classic American lager. Zipps Liquor describes the beer that "holds a special place in the hearts of many Texans and beer enthusiasts across the country. This beer has become an iconic symbol of Texas and is often associated with the Lone Star State's rich cultural heritage and love for tradition."
Personally, being more a fan of lagers and IPAs when it comes to beer, I don't gravitate to fruit-flavored ones often, but thanks to this list, I'm intrigued by this Austin-based sour ale.
The folks at 247Tempo recently compiled their list of The Most Delicious Beers in America, and #30 on that list is Atrial Rubicite, brewed at Jester King Brewery in Austin.

"This two-fisted Texan take on wild-fermented Belgian framboise (raspberry-flavored beer), which comes only in 500 ml bottles, is gorgeously garnet in color, and surprisingly dry and vivid on the palate, with plenty of juicy fruit." According to 247Tempo.
