We do off premise too, 1 bottle limit for both.
Also forgot to mention, Specs Midtown had plenty of OG black metal
And Wytchmaker, too. Yum!
Sunrise Minimart-Jester King Craft Brewery
Thanks for giving us 1 case of jester king Das Uberkind. I have 12 happy customers.. And 60 pissed off customers...
Case in point...posted by Sunrise Minimart today on FB
Picked up a bottle of Überkind at Lonestar tonight.
Got a bottle at the shell in south Houston on NASA and blackhawk. Thanks guys!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sounds like normal prices from what I've seen.
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
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.
Drank half of my first Funk Metal today. Gushed a little, but not violently. It all made it into the glass.
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.
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 think I saw some at the Spec's on Mason Rd.
NO! They went against farmhousing it? In before shit storm.
Pretty sure there is still some at Stella Link Rd Specs and the Holcomb one
I should have grabbed more Buddha
I saw a few a day or two ago at the Spec's on 290 & Jones Road. I picked one up myself.
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.
El Cedro is on the taplist for this weekend.
Le Petit Prince Organic Farmhouse Table Beer
Black Metal Imperial Stout
Bonnie the Rare Berliner Weisse
Funk Metal Sour Barrel Aged Stout (special 2 oz. sample)
RU-55 Sour Barrel Aged Red Ale (special 2 oz. sample)
Special Guest Keg(s):
Beer Here Dead Cat (Denmark)
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.
Just left the heb at kuykendahl@1488 they had roughly a case of both gotsland, buddahs, and bonnie on the shelf.
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.
is there any Buddhas left in Austin? this is the only release I missed
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.
