Our fellow Texan readership is certainly familiar with Lone Star beer. It is the cheap beer that reminds us to be proud of our home state. Quality-wise, most beer drinkers liken it Bud Light or something else along those lines. Basically, we won’t say we dislike it, but we would sooner drink something with a bit more character.
For the longest time, I always wondered if Lone Star was known outside of Texas, and, if so, what residents of other states would think of it. I got my answer a short while back when I discovered this article from SeriousEats.com, in which a Bostonian has written a review of it.
In this particular series of articles, called “Bottom Shelf Beer,” the author reviews, in a semi-gonzo journalistic manner, beers that are more on the affordable side of price tags.
