    Yeah, while every year people bitch about it not being as good, I still love it. I had a friend shop me two cases from Florida when they got it.

    My goal was to wait until it was gold. Well, I only have one case left...

    It's a meme like Rare still being on shelves in Kentucky. Either way it's great.

    For real, I will take any ST that people do not want. It's not outstanding, but I think they are all (that I have had anyways) good and unique. At the very lleast a break from the norm.

    I'm anxious to try a Choklat as well. Not familiar with Mocha, yet...
     
  9. Don't lose faith quite yet, word round the campfire is they are talking with a distributor now, along with Firestone Walker. Couple those with the rest of the GI lineup, could be a good year to be a Texas beer drinker.

    Woo hoo, Choklat is delish! creme brulee is also lovely! I would imagine theyre really coming if theyre paying that much $$ to get approvals and handing out free beer to places like nobi...

    uneartlhy and hop sun are great beers. I like most of their stuff. I hate the creme brulee but the wife likes it. oat, javah, mokah, choklat are damn good for what they are.
     
  17. DanzBorin

    DanzBorin Initiate (0) Texas Apr 11, 2012

    Oat and Javah are on Hiatus. Mokah and Creme brûlée are the Blackwater Series for now.

    DanzBorin Initiate (0) Texas Apr 11, 2012

    Sorry had that wrong Mokah also on Hiatus.

    Choklat and Creme Brûlée are the only 2.

    They gave samples to bar owners and such to try, not free beer AT those places. They got to sample their line up, thats why they posted a pic.

    rainerschuhsler Savant (360) Texas May 17, 2012

    Ah, so it would be safe to assume Nobi at least is getting some when it rolls into Texas? Hopefully it hits Houston at the same time as Austin and DFW (fingers crossed).
     
  24. April 3rd rollout statewide, I believe

  25. Sounds right. We got the sell sheets a few days ago and I remember an early April release date. We've got some samples around the office, got my hands on a few and thought they were pretty tasty, mostly just the 2X stuff though.

    I'm curious if this will land with the same thud GI did.

    All their shit. Overly damn sweet. I haven't had unearthly, I loved pumpkin but everything else... I hated it. Ill give it another go once its here see if I can appreciate their sweet beers.

    Thud? If being able to actually get beer from a brewery and not having to bust ass searching for bottles is a thud, I sure as shit hope Southern Tier is a thud.

    I was talking about ST earlier with the craft brand manager from Silver Eagle and he seems pretty confident that Firestone Walker will be coming to SA and Houston next month as well. Oddly enough, he seemed reluctant to confirm the April 3rd rollout date, just that it's coming next month.

    I think for alot of people it's the vanity of not being able to get the beer in state so they seek it, once it's here they just let it sit. Some give it a try but others just skip by it. I'm looking forward to trying everything of theirs I haven't had yet and stocking up on Pumpking.

    I had the Southern Tier IPA when I was in Florida. Didn't change my life, but it was quite tasty. Reminded me of the Saint Arnold Elissa a bit, but at 7.3% abv, with more of a kick.
