Only Texans Get It!

Sorry for a delay of posts. Summer in Texas is extended. So naturally cramming in the last moments of fun have taken precedent lately. Here's some great exclusively Texan fanfare to tide you over til the coals have cooled.

ZiegenBock Beer, so delicious only Texans can appreciate it. Literally. It's not sold outside of Texas.

According to ICS Brands website: "Brewed in Houston, ZiegenBock is a beer of the South. Only available in Texas, this American-style amber lager, offers notes of roasted grains in the aroma and a sweet, smooth taste with a hop finish. The select imported hops and specialty malts create a taste worthy of a 2006 Great American Beer Festival Bronze Medal."

JEALOUS? Don't be, it's pretty mediocre.
