    An extra case of Buddha's Brew hit Kings in case anyone missed out.

    What side of town in particular? Dallas? Fort Worth?
  4. I'll be in the Irving area, so getting to Dallas won't be an issue.

    Drive over to Hall's and see Fern. Take 183 to 360 north...glade rd exit, go left, about a mile or two down, it will be the "gas station" past the overpass on the right...or the attachment to the gas station...whatever.

    Only issue is that while Halls has the best selection it is also popular so typically things don't stick around long. The Whole Foods in Arlington might have some things but typically you have to know what you are asking for since they keep it in the back (a pain sometimes). While I haven't been I would suggest Craft and Growlers if you have some empties growlers lying around.

    Well because of the antiquated booze laws in TX, you can only buy Freetail at Freetail in San Antonio, since it's a brewpub. Setting up a trade is your best bet if you're only going to be in DFW. Good luck!

    Oh well, I'll see what's available in the area.

    The closest place to Irving that'll have it is probably Lonestar, but the full list is here: http://www.lakewoodbrewingcompany.com/?p=1559. And yes, Temptress is mighty tasty.

    No ├╝ber in Fort Worth yet but I was at places before the Virtuoso truck came around. Based on the funk release it could be next week. As stated in the thread small batch 4 is at Kings though, still 3-4 Buddhas

    I was told by CM Southlake that they wouldn't be receiving Abyss due to label approval problems. However, I saw that the label approved on 12/13/12. Anybody have any insight on this little conundrum?

    Will be staying in downtown FTW right after christmas for a couple days. Looking for good bottle shops in town. Saw there isn't anything downtown.

    Looking specifically to get some Rahr BA stout/and or Freetail stuff. I'll be coming from Colorado so would be willing to trade if the Rahr BA is sold out at the stores.

    Freetail is on-site sale only, so you would have to trade for it, or go to San Antonio.

    H0rnedFr0gs Savant (425) Texas Mar 12, 2012

    Central Market will have a great selection and is only a few miles west of DTown...Rahr BBWW is everywhere now and if you wanted a case it could be easily found. Specs is the cheapest at 6.99 for that beer (cash only) up to 8.99.

    If you have growlers go to Brewed off Magnolia. You could sneak away with some tasty Texas stuff.

    I went to the Central Market in Fort Worth today and there were still around 20 cases of the Rahr BBWW

    For those in FW... The Gingerman(Camp Bowie) has bottles of SA Bishop's Barrel 1(just under a case left as of tonight). No take home, unfortunately, but really worth a try. Also worth mentioning, give Peticolas Wintervention a try if you haven't already. Really good winterwarmer.

    On a related note: Just down the street from Gman, Majestic(Camp Bowie and Hulen) is having a 30% off EVERYTHING/Blowout Sale. I saw people mostly buying liquor and BMC crap, and the craft section was also slightly "picked through"... but if you hurry you might find some gems. I picked up Old Raspy(2x 4packs), Chimay Cinq Cents, St. Bern. Abt12, Merry Mischief, some Ayinger, a Roch 8, and a'11 Sisyphus.

    Sorry Fern, I cheated on you *hides face*...,

    CM Fort Worth has cases of Uber on the floor. Love the new caps

    Can't wait for the share. Building up some fun things to break out as best I can. Someone want to start a google docs?

    Also I can't say how I know this but anyone in the Fort Worth area who has missed out on that (512) bottled goodness, an slim of '10 will probably go on later today. Once I confirm ill add details
