Wikipedia: Bock

(...)
Shiner Bock – Spoetzl’s flagship beer. Bock has been brewed since 1913, almost as long as the Spoetzl Brewery has been in business. However, it was not until a few decades ago that Shiner began producing a bock beer year-round. Shiner Bock was considered a Lenten beer, and therefore was only made around that season. Today 73% of the beer made at the Spoetzl Brewery is bock beer.
