    Krunkin is being tested today to see if it's ready (had it from the bright tank, tasting pretty good), still on track for the 8th release if all goes well. Bodacious will be the following week on the same time as pumpkinator

    More news from Gabriel's: We're expecting 50 cases of Alaskan Winter Ale tomorrow. Due to the volume, we'll be selling it at a discounted price (not sure exactly what price yet).

    Why yes, yes it does!


    And will it be availble in cans or bottles as well?

    I was talking about red lobster guy lol. I think we all buy beer early on, specially on dates were limited bottles come out or you see something on the shelve that catches your eye.

    I WILL admit that the kid at the register looked at me funny (it WAS 10am on a Monday, at a grocery store....) but then had the audacity to say "I won't ask to see your ID, because you look WAY older than 21." I couldnt decide whether to laugh or punch him in the face..... :eek:

    Anyone know if the Santa Fe Java Stout made it to Austin? Would love to try some of that.

    kmello69 Advocate (505) Texas Nov 27, 2011

    My understanding is that its coming, but I dont think its here yet. Apparently the distributor wants to wait until the weather cools down a little bit. But I have good word that its coming.

    I know this might be a stretch, but with the change in TX label laws anyone know if we might see Augustiner beers here. IMO the best of the Munich beers.

    I think I saw it at CM Westgate today. I bumped into their Ben E Keith rep who's often there at the same time as me early in the morning. He was pointing out some new arrivals but after the excesses of the past two weeks I was trying my best not to hear what he was saying by sticking my fingers in my ears and going "Weewooweewooweewoo".

    Didn't stop me from buying a Bitches Brew and a Full Sail Big Daddy J's Malt Liquor though :oops:

    Also saw some of that this morning.

    blatherbeard Savant (420) Texas Sep 30, 2007

    Dont know if this is news but I picked up some Post Road Pumpkin Ale at Kmello's specs up in RR. (Brooklyn brewery if you didnt know, which i didnt at the time)

    along with a bottle of BBXIV which i was excited to see, and some weasel rodeo since i hadnt had any yet.

    mattchow Savant (380) Texas Jun 24, 2012

    Anyone in Houston have Bitches Brew?
     
  35. Its hitting stores today (Thursday)... finally
     
  36. Lutter

    Lutter Advocate (650) Texas Jun 30, 2010

    Did they have any more BBXIV? I'd love to grab another bottle next time I'm up north.

    Let us know in the Jester King thread how the carbonation is on that Weasel Rodeo... there's been some issues with bottles (namely mine and a few others) that had no carbonation at all.
     
  37. blatherbeard

    blatherbeard Savant (420) Texas Sep 30, 2007

    will do when i drink WR, and yes they had a full shelf of BBXIV, unfortunately i only had limited funds.

    Got mine at Specs on westhiemer/old farm. I think 9.99/6pk

    make sure you drink my itself or with mexican food. Tried my first one with an italian sandwich without thinking and it was crap. next time by itself it was good, and when I had it with chipotle, it was really good...lol
