    This is Austin, not Houston.

    Move at a normal pace. It takes at least a week to run dry. I saw it in places 3+ months after release last time around.

    I still have 9 bottles of DR 11 if anyone in the Houston area wants to trade for some message me. I would like to get a few more DR 12 to age.

    My guess is that we will start seeing Divine Reserve in 4 packs since they went that direction with Icon. That would help make it more widely available.

    You should totally put that DR11 on the trading forum. Some nincompoop will trade ya something for it!

    They just wanted to make sure that people would still hoard cases even though it wasn't a style that was meant for cellaring.

    I actually really like this idea. I'm ok with getting fewer if it's easier to find.

    Somebody who tried their first craft beer will hear about it and decide he needs 2 cases.

    I do not understand this. Saint Arnold released the beer, while specifically stating that it was young and needed to be aged for a year. I'm waiting until it passes the year mark to make a judgement on how it's developed. I have 2 DR12 sitting in my closet. And another 8-9 or so in a temp-controlled chest freezer and mini-fridge. You know. For science.

    I had 10/11 fresh........just like 12.

    Maybe when I try 12 after a year I'll like it. But Fresh it wasn't like 10 or 11.

    Different strokes for different folks.

    DanzBorin Initiate (0) Texas Apr 11, 2012

    All styles of beer are treated differently though. Obviously the 12 needed some age. I've got quite a bit sitting and waiting for a bit to crack in to them. Had it fresh on tap and it was okay. From the first glass I could tell it needed time.

    Just had one last week... still needs a lot of time.

    DR10 needs to be swallowed down NOW. Falling fast.

    I'll break one out tonight. ;)

    hard part is moving all the beer out of the way to get to it... lol

    I have the exact same problem. I really thought this would last a lot longer :confused:

    I personally loved fresh, cold, cask DR12 - Nothing like it.

    Yes. Yes we are. I take my job seriously, but not myself.
