Alamo Beer is the name of a fictitious beer brand in the King of The Hill Universe, and the beer which most of the characters are seen drinking. It is the favorite beer of Hank Hill. Although there is an actual brewing company and a trademarked beer brand named “ALAMO”, the brands are not in any way affiliated. The slogan for the brand in the KOTH Universe is referenced by Hank Hill as “From the lukewarm headwaters of the mighty Brazos River”, and is also referenced as the winner of the Munich Beer Festival of 1849. The name of Alamo beer is a direct reference to The Alamo Mission defended during The Battle of The Alamo, which is also depicted and referenced in the series. Alamo Beer is in many ways referential of Lone Star Beer and Budweiser, both popular Adolphus Busch beers.
Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on super-soft Gildan 18500 hoodies via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. With a large front pouch pocket and drawstrings in a matching color, this hoodie is soft, stylish, and a perfect mid-weight for laying in cooler weather or keeping the chill off during summer nights at the beach.

Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current sweatshirts, laying it flat, and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the hoodie laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the sweatshirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam.
*Heather colors are 60/40 polyester/cotton. **Due to the nature of the printing process and different sizes offered, imprint position and scale may vary slightly from the product images, but we do our best to be as accurate as possible.
