    CM Southlake has 3 cases left. I got the last 6er out of the first case. Beer guy said there was plenty available so he only ordered 4.

    I bought the last 6 pack on the shelf at Escarpment HEB today. Not sure if there is more in the back or not. Only posting this to show that it is in some HEB's in Austin.

    Picked up a six-pack of Sucks at HEB Central Market today after work. It's not on the shelf; I had to ask for it. They also had Stone Perfect Crime and Dogfish Head 120.

    I was in Houston on Tuesday and missed Sucks by a couple days... has anyone seen this at the Specs in Beaumont by any chance? I forgot to call them up today.

    I hope it comes back around again. I didn't see a single 6 pack anywhere. I didn't look too terribly hard, but last year I had no problems buying any. I probably went through a case over the course of a month.

    Am I the only one who thinks Maximus is better than Sucks?
     
  26. DanzBorin

    DanzBorin Savant (425) Texas Apr 11, 2012

    Maximus has always been one of the least favorite beers they make.

    I'll take Maximus.

    Maximus is good fresh, but I see a lot of old stock sitting around.

    Gonna try to land a case or two of Sucks this week. Hoarders gonna hoard.

    I wonder if this will be the same bottle date or fresher?

    Also I saw a sixer at the flag store. It was only $11.99. I was surprised it wasn't marked up more b/c of where I was.
     
  30. DanzBorin

    DanzBorin Savant (425) Texas Apr 11, 2012

    Probably same bottle date. From what I've heard, distributors will release these slowly to keep stores from being overwhelmed by it all at once.

    "Did you bring enough for EVERYBODY?"

    Hope so. 20 cases just hit the floor at Westgate CM.

    The bottles at CM were bottled on Jan 5, 2013 so a few weeks fresher than the first batch that landed.

    I know that the Specs in Round Rock just got another shipment, so I'd assume thats the new batch. Dont know if they have any left, though.
