About the Brewery
The Lone Star Brewery was founded in 1884 by Adolphus Busch (of Anheuser-Busch) in San Antonio. It was the first large mechanized brewery in the state of Texas. Unfortunately the Brewery would close from 1918-1933 due to prohibition, but by 1965 the company’s annual sales would exceed 1-million barrels. The brewery was sold in 1976 to Olympia Brewing Company which was based out of Tumwater, Washington. The brewery would change ownership a few more times (G. Heileman Brewing Company and Stroh Brewery Company) before the Pabst Brewing Company took over. In 2005 Lone Star would celebrate 65 years as the National Beer of Texas. The brewery is still owned by Pabst Brewing and they currently contract production to Miller Brewing Company in Fort Worth.
Tobin’s Review 4 out of 5
Lone Star Beer has a light hay complexion with a small white head. The beer really doesn’t have much of an aroma, but I do pick up notes of light grain and hops. The beer is very smooth with a very light hops flavor. It’s really easy to drink and I can understand why it’s the National Beer of Texas!
