Specs Downtown got 7 from what I was told.
So did Arbor already run out?
I might pick one up...if there's any left by now.
I'm glad that I don't buy beer from them anymore, yet still come up with all these beers.
Where is everyone finding info on Black Crack? ABV, Production amount, blending with fresh hatchet.... basically, where is the source? I've managed to find that it does in fact exist and people are in a frenzy to be the first to upload it to multiple sites so they're forgoing filling out information just to "be first". The bottles tell me nothing.
E1G got black crack
specs dezavala has some. got one for 11.99
Specs Brodie had it today as well (no idea if they still do)
Ugh, I paid like $16 at Sunrise. I mean, I'll take it, but I wish I could be in Austin again to get one of those at $10.99. Sheesh.
No more. Last one went around 9pm.
Man, it's killing me more than I thought it would just sitting back and watching this sell without buying any. Must....restrain.....self.....
No one can resist dat black crack!
... except maybe me. I'm still reeling from all that WBADPP I told myself I wouldn't buy.... but then did. The ol' barrel-aged siren's song.
I've been really toning down my beer addiction, so I won't be getting any unless it sits for a while at one of the many possible places in Austin. I was happy to find BA raspy and Schneider mein Nelson tonight at whole foods. Felt no need to run for 512 double pecan this year. From some of the forum responses it seems like I made the right descision. I was quite alright with the heavy carb last year because it suits the beer well. A thin bodied BA beer, being flat isn't going to do it any favors. I'm somewhat partial to southern star but the blending down makes it sound like it may or not be worth the effort/price to get one. I still won't turn down an easy chance to try it.
must be that black crack we got today that i am refusing to close the store tonight? keep it coming SXSW'ers -
Huh? You didn't buy any and obviously haven't popped a bottle but you're convinced it's "flat". False...think you need to do your own research before you start throwing the "flat" word around.
I don't think you have to worry about this sitting on shelves.
You're right. I haven't tried it yet but I from what I gather from numerous people on BA and other forums it seems like its 50/50 on whether or not people feel that it is very undercarbed. I've been around long enough to know that some of the people saying it is undercarbed do actually generally know what they're talking about. Sounds like there could be variation in carb from one bottle to the next.
Plenty of black crack at Specs Brodie... Probably close to three full cases sitting by the beer guys station.
Just came here to post this. Just picked up 2. A good amount left.
They only let me buy one and it looked like 1 1/2 cases left at 1:15pm.
I didn't even ask how many I was allowed to purchase. I just saw the open box and grabbed two.
The new guy was guarding them when I went in. I think the other guy would have let me get two.
Per Southern Star: (2 minutes ago)
HEB in Sterling Ridge just got their shipment of Black Crack. Just an FYI!
Houston BA's: D&Q still has a few bottles as of a few minutes ago. I picked one up for the sake of curiosity. Also got a southern star rauchbier!
yeah, gave y'all time to acquire this, I just bought a case lol.
i love onslo in keeping up appearances
Does that mean I can keep the other two?
thank you, i worked hard to make it in the business!
As an Okie, I really hate to praise you guys, but I really like the Pine Belt Ale.
Any coming to dfw?
looks like a case left at specs Brodie, only got one tho cuz I haven't heard any reviews
That's just way too much logic. Unlike the genious in the RC Small Batch thread who bought multiple cases sight unseen and later cried and complained about how bad they all were.
I swear, the more hype you people put on a beer that has zero known taste value, the less interested I get in finding some.
I'm not sure I like being called "you people" but otherwise think this is spot-on.
People hoarding beers before they've even tasted it makes no sense. Another reason why I am backing off "the game" - I can't afford to buy a bunch of mistakes
Yes, its coming.
Am I the genius in that thread? Just to be clear, I've had all 4 small batch beers, at each release, prior to buying cases. Did not enjoy 1 so only bought 2-3 bottles to share, enjoyed 2 & 3 so bought a case each, and thoroughly enjoyed 4 so bought 2 cases.
My complaining was the lacto infection that destroyed the beer after bottling, months later, and was continually ignored then denied by RC. I also don't remember any "hype" on the small batch series tbh.
I've moved on from the case game, mostly because of financial reasons, but I've come to realize that buying cases upon cases of beer simply for trade bait/ammo is a really, really douchey thing to do.
I maybe could have afforded a case at 10.99 ea but if it sucks I'd rather have a case of something tasty lol
