    Stopped by CM N Lamar since we were up north and found another bottle of Funk Metal (there was 1 more left as of 8:30pm) and also a Buddha's Brew hiding with some Wytchmaker.

    Nom nom.

    Need to pick up some Uberkind tomorrow... couldn't find the beer person at all in N Lamar while we were doing our shopping (doh!). Also saw RC Small Batch #2, #3, & #4 if anyone is lookin'.

    Any word on Thrash Metal being made again/collecting dust anywhere in Houston?

    It's been like 5-6 months since I've seen Thrash.

    That said, it was around for way too long.

    It's still on the shelf at Rosedale Market in Austin.

    You're right. It was bad. Very bad. Would have drain poured it but we were camping and the guy who brought Coors Light liked it, so I gave it to him. Maybe it'll be his intro to craft beer.

    Krumb Savant (280) Texas Jan 30, 2008

    To me, it was bad because of contamination issues. Mostly, chlorophenols. I don't know if it was due to residual cleaning solution (lack of proper rinsing), or if their water has too much chlorine. Either way, those were the off-flavors I got. Remove that issue, and they'd have some enjoyable beers.

    They have some at bay area specs in South Houston by NASA.

    Picked up a couple Uberkinds at CM Dallas last night. There were about a half dozen left on the shelf at 8pmish.
  16. What is the normal price for Weasel Rodeo and Das Wunderkind? Saw both today but they were $15-16 so decided to grab two 6 packs of Deschutes instead for the same price as one of those bottles.

    kevinscott Savant (315) Texas Oct 21, 2008

    Sounds like normal prices from what I've seen.

    kmello69 Advocate (505) Texas Nov 27, 2011

    Uberkind is now at Specs Round Rock. Only 2 cases, and 1 was almost gone already, so it probably won't last long. $15.99
  19. Lutter

    Lutter Advocate (650) Texas Jun 30, 2010

    Das Wunderkind should be closer to 11-12. Das Uberkind is around 15.

    Weasel Rodeo ain't worth 15 (my 2 bottles had no carb). Whiskey Rodeo is worth 18 though. :)

    This reminds me... I need to drink my Beer Geek Rodeo.

    My last Whiskey Rodeo can never be drank. They need to make that stuff yearly.
  20. Lutter

    Lutter Advocate (650) Texas Jun 30, 2010

    Drank half of my first Funk Metal today. Gushed a little, but not violently. It all made it into the glass.
  21. It must have been Uberkind. I can't justify paying that price for a beer I might not even like. Wish Jester King came in 12oz bottles.
  22. Lutter

    Lutter Advocate (650) Texas Jun 30, 2010

    Not possible right now, since they hand bottle everything.

    It's priced right for a sour. It's also mind blowingly awesome.

    FYI, South Houston is a city that is a good deal north of Bay Area Specs. The city in question is Webster or Clear Lake, which covers anything from FM 2351 off 45 all the way south to FM 518.

    I'm sure you have all been dying to know my thoughts on the buddahs brew... So here you go.

    Jeff, this has to be a different blend of yeast, it does not have the harsh chemical finish that all the other sours have it is there, but in a much smaller amount. It has a crisp smoother finish. Much better. Please use this sour yeast cocktail for your sours. :)

    While I don't completely agree with your assessment of their other sours (but I think I understand it and agree in part), I agree completely about this beer. It's just very smooth and drinkable...it kept me coming back to my glass for more. Was very happy to hear it and other variations of it will come out in the future. Bonnie was much the same (although I wish it had been just a lil more tart).

    Apparently Seth should change his name to Pavlov because my mouth is salivating and I'm going to pop a Buddhas myself

    I had Beer Geek Rodeo, along with Weasel and Whiskey, a little under a month ago. BGR has become super smooth with a nice bite. The people I was drinking with all agreed the pepper bite/spice was slowly dying off. So if you want that heat drink now. I'm saving a bottle of BGR to try again about this time next year.

    Buddah's Brew is soooo good.

    They used English yeast for that one for some reason or other.

    I don't know if this can be attributed to the beer, but the Lubbock area has some of the worst water I have ever tasted. Not surprisingly, the locals think it's just fine.

    It definitely is, which made me a little sad. Had a bottle in Sep. and it had a lot less of a bite than when fresh. Going to break out my last bottle for Xmas/New Year's.

    I think the next Buddha's release is going to go a lot quicker because I've talked to a ton of people that bought 1 bottle because they were unsure about it and they absolutely loved it. It was only a 100 case release, iirc.

    Blueberry Kombucha on the next one FTW, Jeff. :)

  39. is there any Buddhas left in Austin? this is the only release I missed

    Lutter Advocate (650) Texas Jun 30, 2010

    I found a bottle at CM Lamar stuck in with some Wytchmaker 2 days ago, but i think that was a lark... I believe CM Westgate was out as of last week.

    I never saw it at Spec's. Bottle shops in South Austin are out.

    If I had to guess, I'd say your best luck would be at Rosedale Market.
