    I live in Mansfield. Stopped by Beer & Wine World in Mansfield on the way home. They typically get hosed by BEK on stuff. Was expecting the "None" response but was thrilled to hear they got a case and the owner was saving a bottle for me. He has a few left. The remaining bottles are behind the counter and not displayed so you will need to ask for it.

    As you know, B&WW is always a tad bit more. I think pre-tax it was $16.85ish. It was $13.99 at Whole Foods.

    Had a nice long chat with Jamie and the team from Community last night at Live Oak. Very humble and happy team. Jamie did not believe that the barleywine Brad brought to the share wasn't oxidized. I also had a chance to hear the story behind its name and its creation.

    Moreover I heard they are purchasing barrels (or perhaps already have) and we should start to see the full breadth of their brewing skill sooner rather than later.

    Anyone seen or heard about Ska Pocket Protector porter coming to DFW? It was widely available in beer stores last month in Durango - hoping its headed our way because it was outstanding.

    I don't want to start a whole cellaring debate because I have beers in different closets, designated beer fridge, etc but that one has been "properly" cellared in the wine fridge since the day I got it. The wine fridge is the best I have for "proper" cellaring due to the temp I have it set at.

    I'm not saying that made a difference but, again, it's one of the few I beers I have that has been stored there for its entire life.

    Jamie thought I was blowing smoke up his skirt when I mentioned that I thought it was every bit as good as MoAS and close to te Bligh's. of course it was late in the share but it was still sexy.

    Jamie did mention that he has a keg of Fritz waiting for its namesake to be old enough...pretty cool conversation.

    And if you haven't tried their Pale Ale it's really really good...I would drink it over SNPA everyday and most IPA's as well

    Agree, what's left in terms of JK stuff?

    FYI - there is a new HEB that just got approved to go in Southeast Fort Worth...which I like.

    gtermi Champion (750) Texas Apr 21, 2010

    He is cleaning out space to make room for something that sells. For some reason the Jester Kings just don't sell in Burleson (like how the original Wytchmaker still sitting on shelves here)

    H0rnedFr0gs Savant (425) Texas Mar 12, 2012

    I saw tons of Stoic languishing on the shelf many many months after it was gone here. He gets better access than he should to some great beers. Glad to hear that HEB is moving closer... Their buying power alone should bring more cases to FW than before

    gtermi Champion (750) Texas Apr 21, 2010

    All I know is John busts his ass to please the few beer advocates that come in there and he always seems to get great beer. He is by far the best beer manager of any store that I have been to; It just sucks that Burleson doesn't have near the craft beer lovers that Fort Worth has.

    Not sure if you're spelling it wrong, or it's just a different John but the beer and wine manager @HEB(Burleson) is John Mosher... and a very cool dude he is.

    If that were in Austin... I would literally buy all the Mad Meg and Petit Prince. Mad Meg is severely underloved and ages extremely well.

    Also, is that Dogfish Head Black and Blue I see there for $7.77. That's a farking deal!

    gtermi Champion (750) Texas Apr 21, 2010

    Nope that's where the Boxers Revenge was.
  38. If I had the time and space for more beer I'd clear out several bottles each of Price, Wytchmaker and Noble King. You other louses can have the mad meg.
