Coaster: Celis Brewery
This one's from the now defunct Celis Brewery in Austin, Texas (obviously). Pierre Celis (of Hoegaarden fame) started the brewery in 1991 making primarily a witbier called Celis White. Unfortunately, Pierre made the poor decision to allow Miller Brewing to buy a controlling interest and in 2001 they closed the brewery.
The Celis line is still produced by Michigan Brewing who bought the rights to produce the beers after the brewery closed.
Somebody must have brought this to me because I have been to Texas only twice and I have never had Celis White (must get around to that someday) as far as I can remember so somebody must have brought this coaster to me.
