One of my favourite things about visiting a new place is trying out the local cuisine. On my first night in Texas I tried the Texan beer, Lone Star. I have never seen light beer in any country other than the United States, and to my surprise, I actually like it. I prefer lagers over real ales, so Lone Star was great; refreshing and hydrating in the heat.
Since then, I have tried a lot more drinks and food, including some truly decadent barbequed ribs. To drink, my current favourite is the beer, Shiner, Prickly Pear. It is a summer seasonal made from the fruit of the prickly pear, a cactus native to Shiner, Texas.
