    A little late to reply, but Houston bottle share is the second Sunday at Gingerman.

    Also, replying to BCS (I will still never refer to it the other way, this is the way it originally was, and for ever after), I have been known to drink that stuff in the dead hate of summer in Houston. Followed by a dram of Willett:D. Anyway, I can't wait to get some more Prairie Artisan. Great stuff.

    I love my OK trading partner. He is absolutely top notch. *Picture he sent me. I don't have the beers in hand yet, and there will be at least 1 more Prairie Noir added*.

    All 4 of the new releases are excellent. Everybody is going crazy for the artwork - how about some metal tackers? I need some for my garage :)

    Gold is my favorite of the four. You hit the nail on the head comparing it to an Imperial Berliner

    Missed that addition. Great to know. And I re-read my post and hopefully I didn't come across to anyone as suggesting you are anything less than responsive and connected to us..thanks for that..it's great to have such a short feedback loop with brewers

    Unfortunately this Kickstarter comes at a difficult time in my balance sheet but the great news for BA's is I'm training up at the Fort Worth Saucer and I can hopefully start to push your beer soon. I am excited to introduce your beers to my community and I have every expectation that Standard can and will be a staple here

    Where is that posted and what's the other one for April? I'm super stoked that I'll get a 2nd bottle in that case so I can wait for the psycho TX weather to get frigid a few weeks from now and crack open the Noir while watching the fake fireplace and jazz playing from my Sony TV that runs Google Android.

    Have you ever noticed the beers aren't really that.....rare? A few have been pretty tasty, but I could easily trade for them if I wanted them. That being said, I'm eager to get my palate all over that Seizoen Bretta and Boon 2009 unblended 3yr old lambic

    The other selection for the month is Birra Amiata - Contessa from Italy. As far as where I seen it... Monthly allocation email.

    Ah I don't get those because I got mine as a gift for a few months. Have you tried the coffe and chocolate barrel aged beer last month? I want to bring that to a bottle share or open it for myself soon.

    I'll probably have about 60 cases of Noir to sell in OK too.

    Thanks I forgot you can do that. I need to get the info from my mom so I can skip that Italian beer. The Birra Gold honey bock tasted horribly medicinal.

    Digging the Prairie Somewhere right now with the lady. Totally misplaced the great lime flavor for citrus hops. After letting it warm up it really sticks out though. Saw that Pirate Noir is being bottled. Considering how much I loved Noir's coconut notes a rum barrel version is going to knock my socks off.

    Good times ahead but...send us bottles and kegs before we break out the pitchforks!

    Drinking the Gold now. Of the new bombers, both the Prairie Somewhere and the Gold I would have been disappointed not having the chance to try. If I had to choose...damn...perhaps the Somewhere beer only because the lime notes are so unique.

    I'll be popping nearly the entire PAA line-up at my beer tasting April 13th if you want to try them before then.

    I'm keeping a bottle of Prairie Noir to myself. :rolleyes:

    HookemHops13 Advocate (515) Texas Mar 21, 2013

    Good thing is I don't have to choose. He can bring down however many I want so Ill let him know to look out for those two. From the rest of the thread I guess I let him know the Prairie Noir is high on my list as well....


    May have to take ya up on that. Nice meeting/trading with you today, craziest thing but I actually found a bottle of the WBADPP on my way home today... Now I can hold onto one and give one a try soon!

    Same. But I already forgot your name. I almost always get it remembered the 2nd time though. Crazy you still found a bottle of WBADPP.

    Yeah. Prairie Noir is the shit. It is reminiscent of a slightly weaker BCBS. Rightfully delicious in its own. I believe I discussed in another thread somewhere that BCBS to me is more of a "winter" beer or special occasion, while Prairie Noir is just as good while being an every day/all-day drinking beer.

    Anyways, let me know if you want to come to the tasting. No beer necessary to bring. I created a thread in this forum. Got at least 1 yes and several maybes.

    Was talking(pestering really) to our Fort Worth Favorite Brands reps and they hadn't received any final confirmation regarding PAA in their portfolio. Any sitrep on when I can start to tap this up here in TX?
