    Funny thing is that my Specs never even got Dissident, but was the first store in town to get Abyss. Makes sense....

    Oh yeah, I forgot Dissident just arrived in Austin a week or so ago... That's crazy

    And Austin got a ton more of it than DFW... lets hope more Abyss for us.

    Apparently enough for it to languish on the shelf of Podunk HEB's.

    Thanks for a 5 case total to FW. Deschutes should get a new distributor

    FW could have been in Houston's shoes and not gotten any.

    NO YELLING ON THE BUS!!! (Chris Farley)

    But yes, what he said. When is Houston getting this? I really hope we aren't getting the shaft again.

    Last December I was able to get a couple of these at a small store in Nacogdoches... needless to say I was very surprised... Hoping the guy gets some more in this year.

    Sending my wife over there tomorrow after work (she works in round rock)... what do you think the odds are it's still around by then?

    They got one case and saw 2 employees grabbing themselves a bottle while I was there. It's possible but slim chance. I'd have her try to go earlier in the day an maybe call first.

    Went to the Spec's in Plano today and the guy there told me he thought they were getting Abyss tomorrow along with some more 120 Minute.

    I'd recommend she call, because chances are pretty slim

    In a way Jail Hooch is kinda like a Lambic when you think about it

    Lol! More like hard cider. Hops are difficult to come by in jail.

    Picked one up at Arbor last night.

    Sunrise tweeted a little while ago that they had it. Considering their case of Dissident ran out in 25 minutes, I'm holding my horses.

    carlosarellano Initiate (20) Jan 16, 2013

    Sunrise got 10 bottles and they were gone within 45m.
     
  31. DanzBorin

    DanzBorin Initiate (0) Texas Apr 11, 2012

    No, they got 12 bottles and told you they got 10.

    Per TABC regulations beer is sold in cases.
     
  32. utx05

    utx05 Disciple (60) Dec 11, 2012

    Well, there you go. Don't worry, if things follow through like they did with Dissident, it'll be a shelf beer in a week.
     
  33. Texas_Speed

    Texas_Speed Savant (325) Texas Aug 22, 2012

    Exactly.

    All I have seen in Austin folks chiming in. Nothing about Houston yet.

    Southpark Meadows and Arbor Walk Specs still had some as of about noon today. Hyde Park Market has 1 bottle in the cooler ($17.99 though) as of about an hour ago.
