(512) Whiskey Barrel Aged Double Pecan Porter (2013)

Discussion in 'US - Southwest' started by Lutter, Jan 25, 2013.

  1. That's the best part about watching all of this. Year after year of so many complaints/issues with the beer and there will still be plenty of people thinking "maybe this is the one," and raid every store in sight.

    Personally, I'll suckle from the teat that flows Parabola and be happy.

    Teets of Parabola. Sounds like a Tool album.

    Anybody know where cases landed in DFW last year?

  5. Well this only be around Austin? I've only had 512 in Austin at a beer festival but never see it here in SA except for on draft at certain places.

    Most of it will go to Austin stores and surrounding areas...a few cases will make it to the other metroplexes but a lot easier to get your hands on it at home base.

    Bring Pipeworks and BCBS. BCBS is practically a form of payment in TX, lol.

    But currency exchange rates are dropping.

    BCBCS and Cherry Rye are still exchanging at a very high rate though.

    lol

    You're correct sir... BCBS is currently trading at 0.4JKU while BCBCS has maintained a value of 1JKU. Futures say that WBADPP will enter the market at 1.2JKU.

    This is on the RLSE trading floor of course (Rob Lutter Stock Exchange). ;)

    I'd put Coffee about even and Cherry Rye Higher.

    Coffee is on average $18-20 plus the Midwest Shelf Wale Tax. Cherry Rye is more like $25-25 + MSW Tax

    I traded a WBDPP and Whiskey Rodeo for 2 x Coffees. Both parties were happy.

    I've traded JK sours 1:1 for BCBCS twice this month straight up (amongst other TX beer in larger $4$ trades)

    BCBCS is still readily available in many places. When I was in Maryland last month, I went into a store with literally a pile of cases of it in the corner (along with cases of BCBS, Big John, Nightstalker, etc.) so I think it trades a lot more readily and easily than Cherry Rye does.

    It's was sitting on the shelves of the place I was at 30 minutes ago. I can probably bring some along once I verify I have a place to stay for SXSW.

    FT: BCBS (x?), ISO: bed in downtown Austin for a couple nights!
     
  19. makes me wish I lived in Austin would be more than happy to provide lodging for bcbs

    LOL. BCBS really IS a form of currency in TX.
     
  21. DanzBorin

    DanzBorin Initiate (0) Texas Apr 11, 2012

    So I'm guessing it would take about 2 cases of BCBS a night for a room in DT Austin during SXSW.

    Yeah if you want a whole room like a sucker. I usually crash on someones couch for the 4 hours of sleep a day I usually require during SXSW. I would expect to pay two bottles of 2012 BCBS for the couch.

    So I'm going to eat some crow and probably catch some shit. Small bottle share last night, someone brought wbdpp and made me open it. It didn't blow my face off.

    I'm sure the video will be posted shortly... I drink with the greatest jerks!

    I hope it's not out next week. I need to be able to take off work and track this down. I missed 2 days last week to a damn upper respiratory infection. I'm going to be irate if I miss out on these again.

    the last years release was real easy to find. was all over austin. some store had it for 2 -3 weeks. if they release the same amount this year should not have a problem getting any.

    I didn't say it but I liked it...and yea "next week" has become a running joke in the Southwest forum due to the Dissident and Abyss releases these past couple of months.

    Eh it wont work. Even with my bad experiences I'm still buying a bottle if I can get it with ease. At the very least it'll make for good trade bait.

    We should and the mad dash, frenzy, chaos and all around wild goose chase will ensue as per every limited release of beer in this city. This process will now be known as the Houston Protocol.
