The leading lights from the European chapter of ICIS news – Lewis, Nigel, Graeme – took to the road to drive from Houston to San Antonio on Saturday afternoon.
Says Lewis: “On our journey from Houston to San Antonio we made the difficult to decision to drive a few extra miles to the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner for some free beer.
Visitors can sample four Shiner beers. I think the idea is to get you drunk enough to buy some of the overpriced souvenirs.
All the beers were very nice, but Shiner Blonde was my favourite.
We weren’t the first ICIS visitors on Saturday. We noticed Stephen Burns’ name in the guestbook from a couple of hours earlier.”
