Lone Star Beer: 11 Things You Didn’t Know

Facebook

We’ve all had a Lone Stare Beer. Some of us have had many Lone Star Beers. Regardless of your feelings about the inexpensive brew, it is forever linked to our State through movies, music, and of course it’s name. Here are a few things you didn’t know about Lone Star Beer, according to Thrillist.com.

Former U.S. President, Lyndon Baines Johnson, as a child worked for Lone Star Beer’s president, Harry Jersig. It sponsored the very first Austin City Limits Festival. And at one point covered Willie Nelson’s band’s $90,000 annual beer tab, at concerts.

But that’s not where the beer’s endorsements end, Jerry Jeff Walker recorded a jingle for the company and David Allan Coe gave it his stamp of approval when he said, “”Hi. I’m David Allan Coe, and the first thing I did when I got to Texas was meet Willie Nelson and drink a cold Lone Star, and I liked ‘em both.”

The term “long neck” was popularized by “the national beer of Texas.” Plus it’s appeared in many iconic Texas films, like Urban Cowboy.
