    Anyone know a Store that has Boxers on the shelf? Didn't like it the first time I tried it so want to give it another chance

    That's funny, I didn't see any news reports of a cashier being throttled to death in a Gabriel's. I mean, I assume that's what happened next. ;)

    The Whip In told my wife that Boxers Revenge sold out within 24 hrs. She did bring me a bottle of Black Butte XXIV. Winner!

    DNQ is all out of Boxer's at around 11am, but there's a good amount of Weasel.

    Is there any chance whatsoever of finding Whiskey Barrel in Houston or has that ship just sailed totally by this point?

    I'm going to say that ship has left the dock, but it couldn't hurt to ask. I was just at an heb on northside and they had weasle on the shelf, so I asked about whiskey and the guy went in the back and found an empty box. So who knows, maybe it sold out earlier today.

    Whole Foods in SA just got a case of Whiskey and I think even more Weasel today. No Bonnie

    Central Market Westgate had it for a few weeks... they might even still have some (haven't been there for about a week).

    They seemed to get the King's share in Austin.

    There are still several bottles of Boxers and >3< bottles of Bonnie left (have to ask for Bonnie).

    2 Cases of Black Butte 24 came in today. $12.99 ea.

    Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I rarely make it up to Austin. I'm in New Braunfels.

    Saw two bottles of Weasel sitting on the shelf at the downtown Houston Specs last night

    At this point Weasel is probably off the radar of hard to find.

    I see it at every Specs and at quite a few HEBs (The ones with decent beer departments) in Houston.

    As far as Houston goes:

    Bonnie seems to exist in limited quantities in the wild.

    Whiskey is long gone

    I saw several bottles of Weasel still sitting on the shelves at Specs Arbor Walk (Austin) today. Didnt seem to have any of the other 2 left, and no more Flanders Fred. :(

    Central Market Westgate had Boxer's, Drinkin the Sunbelt and Weasel Rodeo today during lunch. All at the wine counter.

    Danielbt Savant (380) Texas May 4, 2012

    JK did say they bottled twice as much Weasel as they did Beer Geek Rodeo, so that's not surprising. I expect it will act like Boxer's and stick around for a few months here and there.

    You just gotta know who to ask. I can go get a bottle of Whiskey Rodeo right now.

    pwsoldier Advocate (540) Texas Apr 26, 2007

    San Antonio:
    HEB 1604/Blanco has a little over a case each of Whiskey and Weasel. Both are priced very close to what Gabriel's and Spec's are charging. They still have plenty of Boxer's too, and they're still overcharging for it.

    Gabriel's has a few bottles of Bonnie left and plenty of Sunbelt.

    I'm finding "plenty of Sunbelt" to be a theme in most of the liquor/beer stores here in Austin. Whole Foods Downtown is literally drowning in the stuff. They had about 5 cases on the floor, bottles upon bottles in the beer fridge and even about a case spread out on their tasting table when we were there the other day.

    kmello69 Advocate (505) Texas Nov 27, 2011

    Same thing at Specs Arbor Walk. There was a pile of Jester King boxes under the shelves, and when I looked at them, every one was "Drinkin" Seems they made plenty of that one to go around.

    Why are you trying to start shit? The post you quoted was made a week and a half ago, and the ISO thread was made yesterday. They obviously found some, and probably didn't ignore bottle limits to do it, which was the context for the post in the first place.

    Hell, I was worried I wouldn't find any at that point too. I did, and now have a couple bottles stashed.
     
  36. BeanBone

    BeanBone Savant (445) Texas Oct 12, 2006

    Yeah, I figured :)

    Seriously though, if anyone has any spare Whiskey Barrel Rodeo for trade, lemme know what you're interested in, I have a lot of different stuff available.

    I'm not. At all. I just find some humor in people begging folks to use their likely one bottle limit to acquire beer for others who then subsequently trade the same beer. All while calling out people who also obtain bottles to trade.

    I was going to say something yesterday about how she was begging people to trade her a bottle and now she's trading bottles. I hope she bought those and didn't get it from a generous person that may have only had a few.
