Per a post on FB, "Hey Texas.....beer leaves Monday for Austin and HOUSTON!!!!!!!!"
Are we going to get expired bottles of Sculpin like Dallas? I was in Dallas for the holidays and they still have the Sculpin bottles with a best before 10/06/12 on the shelf at Whole Foods. I'm so disappointed as I love this beer and it turns fast, as you would expect.
Hopefully the distributer figures out their issues. I remember calling them last year (Andrews I think it was) and the employees I spoke with didn't even know what Ballast Point was. I thought the point of a distributor was to help a company successfully launch their product and navigate the process.
Yea I agree, I bought some when it 1st came out but haven't found a fresh batch since, $16.99 is quite a bit for a 6 pack. The bombers are like $8.99 as well
They're expired because they never sold.
Also they are expired because you DFW guys can't gulp it down!
This stuff will sell like hotcakes in ATX.
I'll be searching for some Sculpin really soooon.
I'm waiting patiently for Victory at Sea... and by patiently I mean I wantz it real soon.
Tweet from Petrol Station:
Can you feel that? Sculpin is heading to houston.next week
Do we get the liquor as well? That's all I'm really interested in. That and Victory.
Guess who has a bottle of Victory at Sea...
And how did "THIS GUY!" Procure a bottle of said elixer?
Someone give "THIS GUY!" a cookie... .
I'm sure there are more than a handful of SW BA's who are currently holding VaS... (including "this guy"...).
hehehe, yeah! Went to SD for xmas and bought myself several Christmas Presents.
I'll take the Victory, but at $9 a bomber for Sculpin I'd rather have Hop Stoopid or Endeavour.
6-packs are cheaper per oz.
As long as I can get Sculpin fresh, I don't care about paying $15-20 a six pack.
Can't wait for Victory at Sea to hit Texas....
Had A VaS a few weeks back. Probably the best beer i've ever had. Not that it's saying much because I'm pretty newbish, but there ya go.
Ruination is vastly superior. So is Hop Stupid. So is Endeavour.
If it were $9 a six I'd consider it. At $15 it's way too expensive.
Cracked my Sculpin yesterday that I got in SD, and let me just say that it was pretty damn delicious! Very clean and and slightly fruity. Would Drink Again in a couple of weeks hehe.
Well it looks like more SW BA's will be "holding" VaS, since it's now found it's way to DFW. Hopefully you guys down south will be seeing it on your shelves soon too. Nice SD score, btw!
Yeah, excited to try that one.
The SD haul, I was lucky they had all this nice stuff as I only had enough time to visit one store.
Where's the Alpine?
They were out....
Yep...picked one up today.
Were you "nice"... . I'll be heading that way a little later. Hoping there's at least one left.
he had about 5 or so around noon (when I was there). happy new years.
That sucks. At least you got a bunch of other goodness!
I saw Pinthouse posted that Sculpin is going on tomorrow. Hope it's fresh, cant wait to try it out
Perfect. I'm heading to Austin tomorrow and they are definitely on my list of places to go.
Wend to Specs downtown at lunch. Guy there said no one knew when it was coming or who would get it. He said they did not even know what distributor was the one to receive it. Sounds kinda odd to me - but then that's how it works here in Texas.
