Texas beer wars

The battlefield is Shiner, the home of Shiner Bock, where signs at a recent music festival blared, rather indiscreetly, "There’s a new Bock in town." Billboards around the tiny town (pop. 2,171) also showed up to promote Crawford Bock, a beer launched by Karbach Brewing, a once-independent Houston brewer now owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, or ABInBev.
