    OMG Karbach, you're killing me with all these tap takeovers!

    There's not very much in this world that makes me jealous of Harris County, but Karbach has been doing it lately with all these tappings.

    They and SA are 2 of the few things we have in Harris county that are worthy.

  5. For anyone who missed out on Fra-Gee-Lay and BBA Hellfighter:

    Hubcap Grill in the Heights has a bunch of each in their cooler for order with your burger. I suppose you could always just walk up and order the beer and skip the burger if you're not hungry :)

    Talked to my guy up there, said they got them a few days after release day and the hype had worn down. I was surprised to see them there a week later. And here I was running all over town getting 1 or 2 per store when it dropped. Always seems to happen that way.

    Deal. I have 2 Pumpkinators. I'd rather meet up since we're both in Houston. I live in Cypress and work in West Chase. I plan to be in Willowbrook and The Woodlands (for a quick minute) Saturday.

    I just got a BBA Hellfighter in a trade and I can't decide whether to drink it now or age it, or try to trade for 1 more. Just so I can drink 1 and save 1. It will be my 1st offering from Karbach and I am very much looking forward to it.
     
  29. StArnoldFan

    StArnoldFan Advocate (680) Texas Dec 28, 2012

    Drink it now. It's not hot and tastes wonderful now. I'm sure it will do well with age but I wouldn't hold on to it without trying 1 fresh. I just drank my last 1 or I'd hook it up so you'd have 1 fresh and 1 to age.

    Hellfighter is awesome, You'd do yourself a disservice if you didn't drink one now. I got lucky and found another one with my purchase of Abyss today.

    Any Houston BA who missed out on some Abyss care to do a trade for a BBA Hellfighter? It appears I've finally given in to the Karbach hype-train with this release. :) I have other beers, but figured I'd take care of a frustrated Houstonian who got denied Abyss. Shoot me a BM if interested...

    Get some Weisse Versa to buddy. It hangs with Live Oak hef and in my eyes surpasses it.

    Wish I could get more BBA Hellfighter man! I'm down to my last bottle....

    It is pretty damn depressing... :oops:
     
  39. Had some of the BBA Hellfighter last night at the O'Bannon's take over...holy crap. That beer is pure, unadulterated magic.

    Also loved the Bodacious and Fra Gee Lay, which were the only three I could afford — I figured if I'm dropping money like that, I might as well get the uncommon stuff, right?

  40. Was in Houston over the weekend and picked up the 4 regulars and some Pontificator. Have had all four of the regulars, and I am very impressed with them. Really enjoy the wheat.
