    Cherry BB Hellfighter was DIVINE MAN!
    Pants felt a little creamy after I finished my glass.


    But yeah, this is going to be tough to find.

    Bent over backwards for Bodacious
    Had to bribe people for Fragile
    Can't imagine what I will have to do to get this new beauty.

    Plus, it seems like the Karbach hype train is gaining steam. I mean I remember when Krunkin came out... It was so easy to find and they had multiple bottles left at Smith St. when i got out of work at 6:00.

    BM me and I'll get in touch after everything settles.

    Actually have some fra-gee-lay available for trade if anyone's interested. Ended up with more than I need thanks to helpful friends.

    Why would an out of market liquor store get this beer?!

    If this is true it's an absolute slap in the face of the Houston market. Most Specs will be lucky to get 2 cases.

    The first Jester King bottles were sold at West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago. Sometimes this sort of thing happens. Not saying it's right. Which Binny's?

    Binny's is the Specs of the Chicago area.

    Chicago should not be getting this beer.

    It's bad to strip your customer base to have a very small amount go to another market. Especially with how limited the Karbach Barrel aged stuff has been.

    If they want to export anything it should be their base lineup, not rarities.

    I meant to say which Binny's. Thanks either way.

    I agree, I am not sure it is true though. Karback is very adamant about keep their stuff in Houston. I am in Illinois right now, and follow Binny's. Have not heard a thing about it. Me thinks it is a little joke, but always hard to tell with certain posters;)

    I'd assume so too. It would be uncool when so many people in Austin and DFW have been clamoring for Karbach for months and deciding to go to Chicago instead.

    Maybe the rumor was meant to poke fun at the fact that Karbach is very Houston-centric.

    I just purchased a Vespa scooter which I will use to stealthily follow distributor trucks throughout the city... I also purchased a little red wagon to pull behind it and hold my BBHF haul.

    Yeah, I've had several glasses the past two nights there, but when I went there, I asked him about getting a growler fill and he said they were stopping temporarily because they had some people who had issues with the prices.

    Any idea what they where charging? And is this all growler fills or just Hellfighter?
  36. Ford

    Ford Savant (470) Texas Sep 8, 2012

    Shouldn't be to hard to figure out what to charge per ounce.... they can see what Guru Burger, Premium Draught and Petrol Station are charging... at least I would think...

    Anyone know what they are charging for their empty growlers?

    I got a growler fill awhile ago at Petrol for $0.50/oz. Still have a 64oz growler sitting in my fridge from whole foods where I paid $25 (I think?).

    Average around town was 32$ for 64oz Scott that was from the crazy cheap night thanks to pawpaw
