Jester King Salt Lick

Discussion in 'US - Southwest' started by mikeincharleston, Mar 9, 2013.

  1. Any word on bottles? Just saw on FB that kegs were going out and they were waiting on bottles. My brother lives near the whip in (is there more than one)? He wants some too but he doesn't keep up with beer culture so I gotta tell him when it's there. Any help is much appreciated

    Probably still waiting on label approval and/or bottle conditioning. BA's who are at the brewery today will most likely report whether or not bottles are available at Stanley's. I thought Ol Oi was going to beat Salt Lick to shelves but I could be wrong...

    It's like right there. I literally thought it was part of the brewery when we first started going there and couldn't figure out why they weren't drinking there instead of in the sun.

    Mike,

    Jester King beers always appear at Stanleys Pizza (which is on the JK property) a few weeks before they hit the stores. So the easiest way to secure bottles is often just to go to Jester King on a Saturday during their tour/tastings (1-4 every Sat) and buy bottles there. They're including it in the tastings as of this week, which means it should likely be available in bottles soon. Let me know if you need anything.

    Salt Lick bottles are ready in terms of the beer. We're waiting on label approval, followed by label printing.

    Had the Salt Lick today, imo it was the best out of the 10 tastings I had. Really looking forward to getting a bottle of this when it hits stores.

    When my local pub had JK night, Salt Lick was the stand out for me also. I can't wait to grab a few bottles and put my smoker to use on some brisket and pork butt.

    Assuming Whip In in South Austin...if they don't have it, Sunrise Minimart on Anderson near Burnet does. It's called Censored now. If the bottles aren't out, ask the awesome workers. It's $14 I think.

    South Lamar Wine & Spirits definitely has it and they're less than 2 miles from Whip In. $13.99 there.

    SA: Big Hops and Gabriel's have Salt Lick. Probably Spec's De Zavala and Central Market too, but I don't know for sure.
