    Headed down to Houston this weekend, any chance of me finding it still sitting in a store? If it's already gone and anyone has one for trade I can get anything from Freetail that they currently have (or anything else I can find around San Antonio) and still have some Pumpkinator I could part with - shoot me a BM :).

    I once knew a guy named Herb, but he was more into red wine (Cabernet, Merlot, etc) than beer.

    He did however run a Hellfighter only store near 99.

    no wonder the heb on fry and 99 was so lame, they put them out in a hidden area (between the wine) AND they labeled it bodacious. Why? Because Bodacious and FraGeeLay and Hellfighter all have the same UPC. Krunkin and Yule have the same UPC as well.

    there is about half a case of HF left as of this morning at 8am.

    I know that Specs on Westheimer and Kirkwood got a shipment yesterday. Not sure how many they have left as they kept them in the back of the beer department.

    There's 4 cases at Kroger on I-10 and studemont, have to ask. 1 per person, but being the charming man that I am, the lady let me have 2. Also they have about 2 cases of Frageelay left too. As well have to ask

    I bought 2 at the HEB Bunker Hill yesterday just before they sold out. Sean, one of their beer guys, said they were hoping to get some more, but probably wouldnt. This probably doesnt help anyone but just FYI....

    They had some yesterday?! If so they lied to me when I went in on Monday.

    I'd love to check this out, but can't make it. Maybe next week at Hay Merchant, but I doubt it. Wednesdays are a tough day to get out for me.
  14. SBoyar1

    SBoyar1 Aficionado (200) Texas Nov 14, 2012

    Yes...I think they released a few Monday night and either saved the rest for Tuesday or got more in....
  15. Ford

    Ford Savant (470) Texas Sep 8, 2012

    Yeah I was thinking of going, but Wednesdays aren't the best for going and having four or more beers.. and the weather outside..is not great.
  16. DanzBorin

    DanzBorin Initiate (0) Texas Apr 11, 2012

    Not putting them out is one thing, but telling me they sold out instead of letting me buy some is pretty crappy. Sadly this isn't the first time they've done this to me. I'm not trying to hawk a case or anything. I'm not some know beer hoarder. lol

    Guess if you aren't buddies you get shut out.

    Love that place!

    It's just a long haul for me. I live near Beltway and Westpark. I can get to Petrol and Back faster than I can get out 290. :(

    When I used to live in Copperfield it was my only local refuge. Sadly I found out about it like 3 years after I moved there.
  23. canadianghetto

    canadianghetto Savant (475) Texas Oct 15, 2011

    Woo Rockwell! I haven't been there in awhile. As far as I know it has only been a great craft beer place for a couple years so you probably didn't miss much. I actually live in Copperfield now.
  24. DanzBorin

    DanzBorin Initiate (0) Texas Apr 11, 2012

    Yeah, I'm sure that once Tiffany took over she helped the craft beer along. I remember driving by there a few times and seeing the sign about having the best burgers but figured it was a gimmick. I heard about the craft beer thing and went to check it out and found out the burgers were indeed tasty as advertised.

    Are you on their email list? Next time you stop in, sign up. They do some email only releases that require password and don't put it on twitter or faebook. They sent this out Tuesday morning. Not sure if they purposely held back a specific amount or got more delivered.

    "Karbach Hellfighter Release (kind of again!)

    limit 2, no password, just come find me in the dept. if you got some yesterday here or somewhere else, please be kind to our other beer fans and let them grab some. limit 2 - thanks as always! "

    A ton of stores didn't get shipped until Tuesday, some even today, that is more likely the case. A ton of Krogers and HEB didn't get anything until yesterday or today so sounds right

    Seabrook/League City must have just got their Karbach delivery today. Nasa Specs and 2094 Specs both are stocked right now. The Specs on NASA doesn't even have a limit.

    I ended up with 6... 2 from NASA , 2 from 2094 store and 2 from Bay Area Blvd. Hit me up if you have something worth a trade and want another.
