A little more background on this American hero: Scott is 44 years-old and has been drinking Shiner religiously since the early '90s. It was the only beer he would buy. When he moved from Texas to Connecticut in 2004, Scott began driving across state lines to bring back cases and carefully rationed them until he could make his next trip to a neighboring state that stocked the nectar.
In 2009, he joined Facebook with the sole purpose of commenting on every single one of Shiner's posts to "PLEASE BRING SHINER BOCK TO CT". He claims to have typed these words several hundreds of times.
So when the time came for a broader Northeast expansion, the brewery rewarded Kerr's persistence by coordinating with his wife to surprise him in front of his friends and family with a hand-delivered case of the state's very first bottles of Shiner.
