Lone Star Beer
Lone Star Beer uses the finest hops from the Pacific Northwest with hearty grains from the Central and Northern Plains. Malted barley and corn extract combine to provide Lone Star with nature's finest ingredients for brewing. Lone Star's ingredients give this beer its full natural flavor. The choicest hops lend complexity and aroma to this beer, and its proprietary mashing regimen creates the perfect balance of alcohol, body, and character.

Lone Star Light
Lone Star Light mimics its full-bodied counterpart with an award winning premium light taste. This beer retains the complimentary ratio of barley, cereal grains, and hops of its parent brand, but offers this taste profile at a reduced alcohol by volume percentage. For maximum flavor and zest, this beer retains the level of hopping and carbonation found in the full-calorie version. Heck, we like our light beers big and bold, just like the state of Texas.
