The ALAMO beer short story.... Once upon a time, a long, long, time ago, there was a beer called "Alamo". The year was 1884 and the brewery was Lone Star Brewing Company. The good citizens of San Antonio loved this locally brewed beer made with the best barley malt, saazer hops and Texas rice. Then in 1918 came prohibition and the supply of "Alamo" dried up along with all the other beers across this nation. In 1933 prohibition ended and the nation was drinking legal beer again, but not "Alamo". Seems that the dry spell caused people to forget the "Alamo" brand and the trade name went dormant.
