While Homes would go on to win two Tony Awards, the defining song of his career is better known by its alternate name the Pina Colada song.
Even if you’re not from Texas, you know the state has a rich and storied history. That’s why it’s surprising to realize that throughout all the lore and legacy of the Lone Star state, there has never been a commercially produced beer using only Texas ingredients.
