"Meet in the Middle" Trinity Alumni Mixer (Austin/Houston/San Antonio)
Spoetzl Brewery, Shiner, Texas - Saturday, November 11, 2017

Join Trinity University Alumni, Faculty and Friends and ride on the comfort of a chartered bus from one of three departure cities -  Austin, Houston and San Antonio - to experience two Texas legends: Shiner Beer and Smitty’s BBQ.

Shiner's Spoetzl Brewery is typically closed on weekends. Thanks to the hospitality of Trinity friend and supporter Carlos Alvarez, the brewery will be opened that Saturday for a private, behind-the-scenes tour for Alumni and Friends of Trinity University. Afterward, you’ll enjoy lunch from Smitty's Market –the king of Texas BBQ – served under tents on the beautiful lawn of the Brewery.
