Back in the 80's you could go to Gilley's and catch a show, do some dancing, ride the bull, and get an iced cold Gilley's beer. It was brewed by our friends at the Spoetzel brewery, the folks who brew Shiner. Now we've partnered with No Label Brewing Co., in Katy, Texas. Today the beer is a smooth drinking blonde ale with a light crisp finish. You can find the beer throughout Texas at HEB, Total wine, Specs, and many more great establishments. If you're interested in trying it, you could ask the good folks at your local grocery store or favorite watering hole. Of course if you live outside the great state of Texas we do not yet have distribution but we hope to soon.
