It’ll Be A Spoetzl Day!

Jul 24, 2021

BBQ for Lunch and a tour of the Spoetzl Brewery

Planned by: Paul Goldfine

Event Details

This month’s drive will end in a tour of the Spoetzl Brewer in Shiner. Because our reserved slots are in the late afternoon, we’ll be starting the drive with lunch.

We’ll meet at Black’s BBQ in Lockhart for some brunch (brisket lunch). Black’s is the oldest BBQ joint in Texas and has been owned by the same family since 1932.

A note to everyone. There is a section of the first leg about 0.8 miles long that is hard packed dirt. I drove it just after it rained and the surface was fine but we will slow down and space out for that section.

At the brewery, we’ll be divided into 2 groups of 30 people each. The 1st group will start the tour at 3:00 PM and the 2nd at 3:30 PM. Ticket will be purchased when we arrive. After, we can meet in the taproom to exchange our tokens for some beverages.

Tour information is below:

Over 21:
$15.00 – Tour, Pint Glass, and One Souvenir Token (to keep as a souvenir or trade in for a 16oz. sample in our taproom)
$20.00 – Tour, Swag Bag, Pint Glass, Sunglasses (subject to change), and Three Souvenir Tokens

Under 21:
$10.00 – Tour, Cinch Bag, Sport Bottle, Snack, and Non-Alcoholic Drink Token

Tours are free for anyone under the age of nine.

Anyone that is Military (active duty/veteran), 1st Responder, or Clergy receives half-off their tour package and 10% off any merchandise purchase. We ask that those that fall under any of these categories bring appropriate ID to show.

Pets are allowed at our brewery but must remain outside all buildings (open air pavilion is permitted), unless they are a registered service animal.

Because we are limited to a total of 60 people, registration will be closed once that number is reached. If you plan to attend, please register early. If you are registered and your plans change, please let us know about your cancellation as soon as possible so we can offer the slot to someone who is waiting. If you can't get in to the initial 60 slots, you're still welcome to come meet us for lunch, and even drive with us, we just can't accommodate you on the tour of the brewery.

We turned on waitlisting for this event so the system will automatically put you on the waitlist (again, for the tours) once we run out of space.
