    This might be the most annoying beer ever. That being said I think this is the week.

    Nahhhhhhhh it's next week of course. But I must agree, this is irritating as hell.

    It might be the most annoying, but it's also #10 on the top 250.

    It's also well worth the annoyance! That is my absolute favorite beer

    I don't doubt it. I got one last year but I have yet to crack it

    It's good. And great by $'s. But top 10 or as you suggest best?

    I would rather drink a half dozen+ other accessible Stouts (both regular and BA)... Unfortunately all those lie outside of our distribution so I will give it the caveat as best BA Stout in Texas..although if I could get a version of Bishops Barrel #1 yearly it would top Abyss IMO. (Mainly because it smells so amazingly great)

    Side note- save me some in FW when this hits ;)

    Abyss is my all time favorite beer and just does it for me. I will make sure not to buy all of it in Fort Worth :).

    Last year (well, Dec. 2011) I was able to find this in the middle of Bumfuck, Texas (Nacogdoches). It was my birthday even! I thought it must have been some sort of sign.... then came Dec. 2012 and NOTHING!

    Needless to say I'm quite disappointed.

    1 bottle limit. Not worth the drive for me.

    Goddamnit. The one day I'm in dallas. If anyone gets an extra bottle, please let me know.

    I'm taking an early lunch break to grab one. I'm lucky that I work next to the METRO rail. Just gonna take the train down there

    would make the drive for 2 but 1 is not worth it.

    The scene at Spec's in Houston.

    It's at Specs Downtown. 1 bottle limit and in the back
  24. jaymesbawned

    jaymesbawned Savant (280) Texas Feb 1, 2011

    Just ran and grabbed one. all in the back, 1 bottle limit. I love my work location. Minutes from Specs, D&Q, and walking distance to WF Waugh and Growlers.

    Perfect timing. Grabbed one during lunch.

    Were you wearing business clothing? If so, I may have run into you....
    I actually have 3 2012 abyss total now. I'll let you guys have a go at the rest. Happy hunting

    Azzy Savant (290) Texas Jul 16, 2012

    There's plenty of people coming buy for it too. I saw a group of guys ask for Avery Abyss.

    This is Texas. I think you would have well within your rights of shooting them down.

    Unbelievable. I can't find beer, and idiots who dont even know what they're buying are grabbing it up. Gotta love the TX beer scene

    Or it could of been a simple mistake. I mean, both Avery and Dechutes make some stellar barrel aged stouts and have been around for quite some time. Lets not jump to conclusions?
  31. DonD

    DonD Aficionado (230) Texas Jun 23, 2008

    Maybe they asked for EVERY Abyss and you simply misheard.

    Avery Made a BA stout? I cant think of any off the top of my head.

    kmello69 Advocate (505) Texas Nov 27, 2011

    At least that makes more sense. :). Sure, I'm jumping to a conclusion, but is it one that isn't possible? Heck no. I see people all the time asking beer guys for stuff and not knowing what they're asking for. Either someone sent them to pick it up, or they heard something about it and can't remember what it's called, etc. happening more and more, as the game of tracking down beers expands.
  38. mmireles

    mmireles Aficionado (210) Texas May 18, 2005

    Eh, I'll wait for a closer Specs to get it... not worth the drive for 1 bottle.
  39. Yea still nothing down in the Galveston area. If it doesn't show I guess I will have to spend a little bit more to get a case from Oregon but very annoying. Come on Abyss I have been drinking you since 07, don't let these beer newbs steal you from me.
