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.
Man wish I could have made it today.
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
Just went to Specs by my house to get some Weisse Versa for this hot ass January day and noticed they have 5 Hellfighters just sitting in the cooler near the back. No Limit. Specs 3126 NASA 77586
Nice! BB HellFighter is the sh!t!
I'm in. Brewing my entry this weekend...hopefully enough time to bottle condition/cool down before the judging.
I left them there, I have been fortunate enough to snatch up 6 bottles release day and a growler from Nobi. Ill let someone else have these hidden gems.
Thats some good shit right there. Well done, sir.
and thanks to your report here, I picked up two of them on Monday...leaving four more... I can't believe they made it all day there Saturday.. and who knows how long they have been in there...
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.
Supposedly Fiesta in Katy (I-10 & Mason) has plenty of hellfighter, yule and pontificator. This is as of 8 hrs ago. Source: twitter.
No mas, mucho pontificator though.
I would love to snag another Hell-Fighter
Wonder if Nasa location still has some
Man... I was hoping to get in on some extra Hellfighter... lol
I was there yesterday and still had 2 left in the same cooler
yeah i went at 11am, only pontificator left.
At Specs on NASA or the Fiesta in Katy? I dont even think the Specs on NASA has Pontificator so your prob talking about the Fiesta is out
30 minute drive to get there on the hope of it being there
ISO: 2 Pumpkinators or 1 Pumpkinator & 1 Divine 12 Bomber FT: Hellfighter
I can do 1 and 1. It may be hard to set up a swap place though... lol
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.
ISO: Bodacious FT: 2012 Pumpkinator
I have 2 Pumpkinator 2012s for you as well.
I already traded a hellfighter with tx_beer_man for some pumpkinator and 2 hellfighters to acbe for an abyss and dissident. Thx anyway.
ISO: 2 Bodacious, FT Barrel Aged Old Rasputin
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.
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.
Where is that?
I appreciate the tip man. I'll have to crack it open here pretty soon. So now begins the search for bottle #2...
Good Luck!!!!!!! lol
Shouldn't be that hard to do.
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...
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?
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.
