Shiner Beer brewery bought by importer

The Spoetzl Brewery, a southern Texas landmark that produces Shiner Beer, is scheduled to be sold by a Houston-based investment group to a San Antonio businessman, the brewery recently annonced, adding that terms of the agreement were not yet settled.

While the transaction has not been set in stone, brewery officials did announce that Carlos Alvarez, president, Gambrinus Importing Co., one of two U.S. importers of Corona beer, will purchase the independent brewery.

Dan Cook, general sales manager, Gambrinus Import Co. said Alvarez is buying the brewery because of its unique appeal in Texas.

"We realize that Shiner is a tradition in Texas, and we want to make sure we maintain that tradition," Cook reported.
