    I went to a bunch of different places over the last couple of days, but couldn't find either of these guys I'm hoping to try. I've been to:

    Gabriel's Superstore
    Whole Foods (near Gabriel's)
    Spec's De Zavala
    Spec's Airport
    Whole Foods Quarry

    If someone could give me a place where I have a 90-100% chance of picking up either RU-55 or El Cedro somewhere in San Antonio, I'd be grateful.

    I saw RU-55 not long ago at the Central Market in Lincoln Heights.

    Don't think El Cedro has made it yet. The only other place you haven't mentioned is Specs at the forum. But I was there yesterday and they were out of most JK stuff. Gabriel's San Marcos maybe? I'm driving through Austin tomorrow and I'll see if I can find you a bottle of RU-55. How time sensitive is this?

    Gabriel's SM has three cases of El Cedro as of 1100, I didn't look for the RU-55.

    Gabriel's SA got 10 cases of El Cedro, but they can't sell it yet. I saw both Cedro and RU at Central Market. I'm sitting on two cases of Cedro at Big Hops, but we're not open yet. :(

    Will Central Market sell me beer on Sunday? Trying to navigate the TX liquor laws.

    El Cedro acquired, going to hit Specs 281/1604 on my way to Spring Branch and may have to segue over to Gabriel's San Marcos if I don't get it there for some reason.

    I've been dreaming of how delicious it was the first time and thought I couldn't wait anymore. Have a bottle chilling for a birthday party in a few hours. And no one gets to try it. All mein. They can drink the other beers I'm bringing.

    Thanks to everyone who helped me find these. I nabbed the last two RU-55 at Specs Legacy, and there are still 3 Funk Metal on the shelf. Final tally:

    3 Boxer's Revenge
    2 RU-55
    2 El Cedro
    2 Funk Metal
    1 Das Uberkind
    1 Noble King
    1 Weasel Rodeo

    Wish that the Noble King was a Drinkin' in the Sunbelt after I had both, but such is life.
