Lone Star Beer launches new Texas seasonal beer called Rio Jade. Here’s where you’ll find it.
Lone Star Beer has launching a seasonal beer with hat tips to Austin, the Texas Hill Country and “The New Taste of Texas,” which is how they are branding this new Mexican-style lager called Rio Jade (pronounced Ree-Oh Hah-Day).
To be released this week, the beer marks Lone Star’s foray into seasonal beers.
Rio Jade is a crisp, Mexican-style lager brewed in Austin using local ingredients, including malt from Blacklands Malt, the first malt house to use Texas-grown barley. Unlike Lone Star, Rio Jade is crisp and light, leaning toward spicy, floral and citrus. The whole package sort of evokes tubing in the Hill Country, a plunge into a secret swimming hole or maybe a sunset over Lake Austin. The beer comes packaged an artsy, turquoise six-pack cans for $7.99.
When the quarantine ends, you’ll find it at Mesero restaurants, Haywire and The Ranch in Las Colinas. Or you can plug in your coordinates here and find it in a store near you. (Kroger and Total Wine may be stocking it right now.)
