Shiner beers will arrive in NYC next week

We first reported this news to you back in January, but the beer is now on its way, and Shiner beers will be hitting the shelves and tap lines of New York City next week. The brand will be distributed by Manhattan Beer Distributors. Shiner let the Twitter masses know this afternoon.

For the past couple of years, you could cross the river to New Jersey to pick up the Spoetzl Brewery’s beers nearby, but you couldn’t get them in New York… until this month.

Shiner has been making what is, by definition, craft beer since its inception in 1909. In addition to the flagship Bock, Shiner has a wide array of craft beers - mostly German-style brews - like their Hefeweizen, Bohemian Black Lager, and Dortmunder. They’ve also innovated with fruit brews like the Prickly Pear Lager and the Ruby Redbird, which is brewed with grapefruit and ginger. Its parent, the Gambrinus Company, is the fourth-largest craft brewer in the U.S. according to data released by the Brewers Association yesterday.

With the addition of New York, Shiner is now available in 44 states, so we’re pretty late to the game. But New York is a tough market to enter - even for one of the largest breweries in the nation.

We’re still waiting to see where the first kegs of Shiner land, but you can be sure we’ll let you know via Twitter when we spot them around the city!
