    Heard from a credible source that our odds are slim at best. The story I heard was they couldn't secure enough barrels to make the original amount that they had planned so ended up with a very small batch...essentially making the odds of it getting out of Colorado very small. Hope what I'm hearing is wrong...would love to do a side by side with my bottle from last year....

    I'm gonna bring a bottle of last years to Freetail on Saturday.
     
  6. Bottles were pretty scarce even in Denver. Avery released one bottle a person(per day I think) during the week of GABF, but Im hearin they are pretty slim pickins'
     
  7. I believe some of it is coming in keg to Texas for limited Avery events.
     
  8. It's not even that widely available here in CO.

    It was $16 a bottle at Avery during GABF, but passed expecting it would make it here like last year.

    Good thing my partner in CO sent me one. It is very nice guys. I also did read we would get it, got it last year so keep your hopes up and hit up your beer guys.
     
  11. There is a guy on here that works with Avery, you could try asking him.

    I knew I should've bought more of this last year. It was pretty plentiful at Central Market. Still holding onto my last bottle for a special occasion.

    I saw plenty of last year's on the shelves in San Diego when I was there this summer, but decided to hold out for the new batch. Regretting THAT decision.......

    And just when I was out, they pulled me back in. 5 cases total dropped in Austin, and I happened to be in the right place at the right time today.

    Crickets on this for DFW
     
  20. Apparently I was misinformed earlier. It should make it to dfw next week, or week after I'm told now.

    I grabbed one at Arbor Walk the other day and noticed the case production was 418...last year's was 512. That's not that much less...wonder why it's been so scarce this year...? Last year I had no problem grabbing bottles but this year all I heard is that we might not get any. Now I'm hearing a few spots around town should be getting more in the near future...

    Based on current trends I'm guessing it won't come to Houston. I'll cross my fingers, but even if it does, in 2012 it's hard enough to get seasonals, never mind crazy limited stuff.

    Phone report. Specs midtown only location in Houston getting it. 4 cases per Specs Katy and in stock now.
     
  28. Specs Midtown doesnt have it in (or at least not yet). It may be in their system, but they said they dont have it, nor do they know when to expect it

    South Lamar Wine and Spirits got 2 cases. Specs Arbor and Brodie both got one. Not sure where that 5th case went.

    Apparently the five cases had been in HEB stock for some time, but HEB does not sell beers with very high ABV. The beers went from HEB > Distributor > HEB a couple times before they realized they couldn't be sold

    Fifth case went to Specs Airport, but only because Whole Foods apparently rejected it due to a bar code issue.
