Lazy Sundays are my favorite and lately they are focused around drinking as well as lazy. Yesterday I tried something new; Shiner Prickly Pear. I’ve been a fan of Shiner Ruby Redbird for a while so Shiner wasn’t the new part. The Ruby Redbird is a perfect summer beer and also pairs well with sushi and Thai! I was a bit skeptical about the Prickly Pear variation because I thought it would be very sweet but I was pleasantly surprised. For those who first associated this with a pear you would eat everyday, cough Kara cough, that is not correct. Prickly pear is a cactus and they grow fruit on them which is the part added to the beer which means this is not a pear cider. This beer paired beautifully with the pork shoulder that was smoked for about 10 hours. Yep Sunday’s are good.
