Visitors can choose from meats and cuts including brisket, ribs, pulled pork and sausage. All of the meat served at the restaurant is sustainably packaged and locally sourced, the news release states.

Fun Fact: The Spoetzl Brewery was founded in Shiner, Texas (population 2,069), in 1909, by Czech and German immigrants brewing beer with old-world traditions and recipes.

“Since then, the brewery has grown to be one of the largest independent craft brewers in the country with beers available in all 50 states and Mexico. To this day, every drop of the award-winning beer is brewed right in Shiner, TX, where it all started 114 years ago,” Shiner officials said.
