SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The taste of beer just got sweeter.

The golden-orange color of Shiner’s Ruby Redbird awakens drinkers with a lemon and ginger aroma.

Nicknamed the “perfect summer brew,” Ruby Redbird is mixed with grapefruit juice and a hint of ginger. What it lacks in carbonation it makes up for in its rich, fruity taste.

“I would drink it with a chicken dish and some rice,” said John’s Grocery employee Spencer Gilbert. “It’s something cold you want outside when it’s hot out.”

Ruby Redbird is a rare beer coming from the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas, a company known for its award-winning dark beers. The light beverage of Ruby Redbird brings a breath of fresh air as summer arrives.
