Our favorite singer-songwriter-storyteller
Robert Earl Keen lends his name to a new
craft beer. The new brew, “Robert Earl Keen
Honey Pils,” uses honey from Fain's Honey in
Llano and is produced at

Fredericksburg. The beer was introduced last

Justin’s busy enough with his show at the

inscribed crystal bowl. They thought they
were going to celebrate with the donors and
ended up being guests of honor.
Next year’s “Pickin’ for
Preemies” will be the 10th! Way
