I haven't seen that. It sucks I live in a small town so I don't get to see new beers very often. My and some of my friends have gotton one of the stores in town to start bringing in new stuff. The only Shiner I have had was the ShinerBock. It was okay, tasted more like a soda than a beer.
Kolsch is originally from Cologne. It is served in tall skinny glasses (.2L) you empty them fast, but they come around often to refill. I've been very fortunite I've been to Germany 5 times in the past two years, 3 this year alone. I already have my next trip scheduled in September. Lots of good beer and schnitzel!
My last trip I had some Konnig Ludwig dunkel that was really good. I have the store trying to bring some in.
