It's well established that I favor an animal on a bottle cap. So, yeah, Shiner is right in my wheelhouse.
Shiner is brewed at the Spoetzl Brewery (named after Kosmos Spoetzl), located in Texas between San Antonio and Houston. Is it weird that I think of Cosmo Kramer and Spatzel when you put those two names together? Cosmo eating Spatzel. Why wasn't that an episode of Seinfeld? (Or was it?!?!)
Anyway, back to the cap. It's not quite a farm animal (read: sheep) but it comes pretty darn close. Bright colors, bold image. It's, well, pretty awesome, something I'd want to look at again and again. I don't know if it's kosher to blog about two hall of fame caps in one week but what can I do? Michael did a great job of bringing home the goods from his trip. And frankly, this is my blog and I can do what I want! Right?! Shiner, you are officially HOF. Congratulations! I say celebrate by having some Spatzel and watching some Seinfeld!
