    Hay Merchant on cask. Hope the flavor translates to bottles.

    Really, did not know Hop Delusion had been released yet? From what I had at the brewery a few weeks ago, this stuff is awesome.

    Just had some at Hay Merchant, can't beat $3 happy hour. All gone now. I am far from a hop head, but this stuff is amazing, well I knew that already. Obviously not on cask though. Looks like a few casks leaked out already. Good stuff.

    Mephisto is way fruiter and almost vinous. I feel like I'd say it's more complex too.

    Hmm... I haven't had a Meph in months, but that was my first thought when I smelled and tasted bcbs. Guess you gave me a reason to pick one up this weekend.

    Or if you wanna split one I have an extra. The label describes the qualities of the beer. And I found the label to be extremely accurate. It was a wonderful beer fresh, but I remember a few months ago when flying saucer downtown tapped a 2 yr old keg of it. DIVINE!

    Deal

    Also, I'm drinking a Karbach Kolsch. It'll be draft only. And it's tasty as F*CK! My favorite beer from them so far

    At least I hear it'll be draft only. REALLY hoping they'll can it. It deserves a permanent year-round lineup. Get rid of their lowest selling beer and replace it with the Kolsch.

    Any one know if they released a new tasting glass? The last one I have is 5, and am curious if a 6 or beyond has been released.

    I know they have one of those can glasses now, but I don't know about taster glasses. I only have the one that says This Side Up.

    Ah, what? Those can glasses are bad ass. Might need to stop by today and see what's up.
     
  20. The 6th glass was released last night.

    Like what was said before, the 6th glass was released on Friday and will be around for awhile. The new Hopadillo can-style glass came out as well. Us volunteers accidentally put on Test Batch 2 for a few minutes today, if anyone got to enjoy it.

    Are people tracking Hellfighter in this thread or another one?

    Just to clarify. The Kolsch will be available starting in June. It will be draft AND cans and called Love Street Summer Seasonal. Get a sneak peek at this weekend's party at the brewery!

    Is Hellfighter going to be a year-round offering or just a limited seasonal release?

    But only if it's exclusive to their old fashioned barn burner event.

    You guys get good music festivals, we get Karbach. Actually Austin still sounds a lot better.

    Yep. One-time use paper bags too!

    My girlfriend literally has 100 reusable bags though, so it's fine.

    There's also a LOT of exceptions. Like if a paper bag has handles and can handle a certain grade of weight... that's fine. They also still have bags for produce, loose dry goods (granola, nuts, etc...), and meat/fish... carry out, and dry cleaning.

    Places like Best Buy, Walmart, or Target (stores that dont mainly sell food) also no longer have bags though... which can be awkward.

    Central Market has the higher grade paper bags (I think HEB too). I but most of my beer at CM, so it works for me. Spec's gave me a box on Saturday to carry out, so that's still fine.

    It will be a limited seasonal release like Yule Shoot Your Eye Out, Pontificator and the next in line...Hop Delusion.

    Thanks. I thought they mentioned on Twitter that they were releasing two year-round IPA's this year and I was hoping that Hop Delusion would be one of them.

    No knock on Hellfighter, but I dont know why places were limiting it along with Saint Arnold. The mass hysteria and hoarding only applies to DR releases. I haven't got any Hellfighter yet, but I have no fear that I will be able to find it when I look.
