*Correction: In the show, Brian said Shiner Bock didn’t come around for quite a while after the original Shiner (which is now called Blonde), but it was only four years later that they started brewing the Bock, in 1913. (via Wikipedia)

*Addition: One feature Brian forgot to mention in the show is version control.

*Addition: There was at least one more excellent quote after we stopped the show, but kept recording. We should totally put that here.
