If you like it spicy - try Janak, another good sausage made between Shiner and Hallettsville.

Janak Packing.

Seems quite easy, trouble is most Conservatives are too civil to do it.

Now all they need is an ammo plant to go with it.

Yep, welcome to Texas.

I hope they are going to be giving tours of the plant.

Shiner is turning into Disney World for adults: Beer, sausage and guns, what could be better.

“Are they being given a hard time there. I know they’d be welcomed with open arms here.”

This is rural downstate. We’re just fine with them. It’s that tumor on the northeast corner of the state that will drive them out.

Thanks for the ping. There is another gun manufacture that was going to open in Austin. They decided on Pflugerville because the permitting process is too difficult in Austin.
