Or call out to Bee Caves (Specs or Twin), because things last a good bit longer out there
I just left the downtown/midtown/Smith street Spec's with the last bottle of Das Überkind! They had plenty of OG Wytchmaker (that's weird, right?) and they just put on the shelf some (off-topic) 2013 Boulevard Rye-on-Rye.
The last time I was out there and got some boxers thats where I got it from. The twin liquors across the street had some too.
Yup, I meant Twin Liquors, but somehow had Total Wine on my mind (from another thread). D'oh!
Ah no! Just got into Houston last night, been looking at HEB/Specs in the Cypress area to no avail!
They used English yeast for that one for some reason or other.[/quote]
Glad I'm not the one who noticed this.
Only the Midtown Specs gets special JK releases. They neglect the outlying stores completely.
Only THAT specs gets the special releases. Hebs are hit/miss
Yeah, HEB locations just depend. The one by me doesn't get much, if any Jester King.

3/6 hebs near me get 0 jk.
My HEB is a big goose egg on JK but we do get Karbach special releases.
Just picked up another Uberkind from CM and this one has the new bottlecap!
Got 2 at Beer and Wine World in Mansfield. Both have the new cap.
The ones I got at Specs RR had the new caps too. Cool stuff.
My girlfriend says I'm easily excited, lol.
My other bottles were from Stanley's @ The Brewery, which might be why they only have gold caps. Who knows.
Mine had plain caps and were purchased at Specs.
Bought at Specs. The cap is the reason I decided to buy it.
AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH! D&Q tweeted they have OG Black Metal on the shelf! Curses!!!! I'm outta beer money! Oh, he also tweeted he has Weasel Rodeo out as well.
I saw four bottles at WhipIn onThursday afternoon.
During our Das Uberkind bottling day (10/17/12), we ran out of the plain gold caps and switched over to the new ones. It's the same beer, but some of the batch has the plain gold caps and some has the new caps.
The caps are awesome.
I wish some could have made it to Houston.
Ended up finding Uberkind at Central market on westheimer/weslayan had 4 cases sitting on the floor as of Noon today. Grabbed two bottles to split with my family while I'm home! Also had commercial suicide and some others on the floor, no funk metal though. Found a ton of OG black metal at specs over on Richmond west of 610 too.
Spec's Brodie still has Funk Metal & Das Uberkind.
I was more interested in Buffalo Trace Single-Barrel for $19.99. Hubba hubba.
I would gladly send you money for OG BM
id even let you have a bottle for your troubles LOL
then again, thats an awful long drive.
I still see OG Black Metal at a lot of smaller Specs and HEBs around town in Houston.
The shell on blackhawk and NASA got it. It's owned by the same guys that own nobi public house...
I meant the caps. LOL
I still cant find Bhudda's Brew... For those who havent gotten Funk Metal there is about 15 sitting at Whole Foods on Waugh. $14.99 and no limit.
No offense, but since your name has been turned into a verb and is synonymous with hording, I can't help but chuckle.
Can buying 2-3 bottles of releases be called "Careful Luttering?" I wanna be a verb.
Beer karma is real?!
As long as you don't loiter to Lutter then, it should be ok to Lutter.
I did it once, and yeah, even Azzy has trouble finding a bottle at times.
I have 7, you just AZZYED!
You want to share buddy?
If I had more, I'd share. I wish I had 7.
Azzy, if you'd like, I can see if Stanley's @ JK has some next weekend and hold some for ya in Austin. My girlfriend has been bothering me to go out there.
Haven't been since friday, but a few spring/woodlands hebs had buddahs on the shelves
