The famous brewery for Shiner, Texas has just launched a new Mexican-Style Cerveza that’s known as ¡Órale!. Spoetzl Brewery, the maker of Shiner Bock, now ventures into the trendy and rapidly growing Mexican-Style Lager category with this new offering in 12oz cans and bottles.
The name Órale comes from the Mexican term of an interjection used to express approval or a call to action. With the beer, ¡Orale!, it’s a rallying cry for a perfect time spent with friends over a satisfying sessionable cerveza.
¡Órale! is crafted with premium 2-row malt and Lager yeast and brewed with agave. It pours a clear, light gold color with a foamy white head that dissipates fairly quickly that is followed up with aromas of malted barley. ¡Órale! is full of light bodied, malty flavors with a slightly sweet finish that is likely from the added agave.
In all a pleasant Mexican-Style Lager that sits at 4.5% ABV. ¡Órale!can be paired with seasonal favorites such as tacos, hamburgers and hot dogs, BBQ, cheese plates and more.
“I am thrilled at the opportunity to combine my Mexican heritage with a Mexican style lager bearing the Shiner label and the Spoetzl Brewery’s commitment to quality,” says Carlos Alvarez, CEO of The Gambrinus Company in San Antonio, TX, who acquired the Spoetzl Brewery in 1989. “I know Shiner fans will enjoy ¡Orale! – a word that expresses so much in the Spanish language.”
Shiner’s ¡Órale! is now available in 6-and 12-pack cans and bottles at a more affordable $8.99 suggested retail. For more information on Shiner Beer and its full portfolio, visit www.shiner.com.
