Anywhere besides D&Q get it today? Wanted to pick up a pack to enjoy during Monday Night Football.
From what I read Specs and some smaller retail outlets got it today. HEB & Kroger will have it next week due to paperwork problems.
None at Specs Mason Rd
Hay Merchant just put it on tap
Whole Foods rep said that no grocery stores will have Icon this week due to Saint Arnold-Silver Eagle paperwork mishap. I guess only D&Q and some Spec's may get it.
On tap at the brewery during tours.
What are 4 packs selling for?
Apparently Kroger on Shepherd and 11th has some.
Didn't SA and BAs say this will be available for 3 months? Why so anxious?
Hopefully. I'd like to get a pack of it to try out.
They really need to inform Houston SA fans of this. I saw this cat down at Spec's Downtown filling his truck up with cases. Managed to get a pic:
For those concerned w/ availability, don't worry. It will be brewed for the next couple months.
Won't stop people from shanking each other to get it. lol
That damn cat!
Did everyone else think it was really good for the style, I loved it, tried it a bit early but though this was great when I didn't think it was a style I would like
I thought it was kinda meh. I love the style but its just meh. Didn't do much for me just like most other Saint Arnold offerings. Exceptions being Pumpkinator, Endeavor, and a few of the DR offerings.
Right there with you. Why do they even bother putting out a beer unless it's 9% or more. If I can't get smashed on two bottles I don't want to drink it. I'm tired of all these Texas breweries making drinkable beers, screw the masses.
Sounds like you may be making a couple of assumptions about kjkinsey there, partner.
What everyone is failing to understand is there was a cat that bought up most of the cases from Smith Street... wearing a tie... that is what is important here.
Business cat loves Saint Arnold's, man.
That cat is a straight pimp, His tailgate says PUSSY WAGON and his tie matches his 4 shoes.
The labels are classy.
Drinking one now. Solid, very enjoyable beer. It's not a huge, complex beer, but it's a pale, not an IPA, so it seems to be right on the mark. Good start for the series.
bought a 4 pack from d&q, can't wait to try it! how much was a 4 pack anyway? lol.
Azzy in disguise.
Wait a tick... look at his avatar:
I'm not saying it has to be a big beer to be any good. It just seems that for Saint Arnolds to make a great tasting brew they tend to be a little higher in abv. Given that, I have had many great, really flavorful beers that were sessionable. Commercial Suicide for example. Tons of flavor 3.5% abv.
Now on tap at Rockwell's
Picked up a 4pk from Specs Rayford today $7.99
I picked up a single at HEB. Going to see what it's all about in the next couple of days.
Its out already? well SHIT, gotta catch em all
but its just in houston for now, if i remember the earlier thread postings, right?
Yep, just Houston at the moment. Specs Mason Rd has it now. Still waiting on Ranger Creek #4
Damn you guys... And there was a crapload of Icon at HEB Central and Specs Downtown.
I work nights so it's my evening time. With that said, poured an ICON up. A little darker than expected. Taste is good. Nice balanced malt body with a nice floral taste with a hint of citrus to round it out. Very refreshing after a good work out and long night at work. Good beef Saint Arnold. Will be buying more.
Nice.. i have a couple on ice right now... will be having them at the family Christmas party this evening.
there was plenty at Westheimer/Kirkwood Specs this week.
Had one tonight... it's very, very good... I'll be picking up another four pack before they are gone.
I was surprised at how good it really was.
Not bad, not great. It's very easy drinking.
I think they made a beer that could be a regular in their lineup.
