Shiner, From Deep in the Heart of Texas

RECEIVED Mon., Sept. 18, 2006

Dear Editor,
    The Gambrinus Company, owner of the Spoetzl Brewery – Texas' oldest independent brewery – and the Shiner family of beers, in no way sanctioned, approved, or authorized recent advertising in The Other Paper in Columbus, Ohio ("Naked City," News, Sept. 15).
    Born in Shiner and raised in Austin, Shiner beers, throughout its nearly centurylong brewing history, has always embodied and been committed to the people and pride that is Texas. Preserving and protecting that strong Texas heritage is a priority for the Gambrinus Company and for the 53 dedicated employees at the Spoetzl Brewery deep in the heart of Texas.
