    Just wondering if this beer will make its way to TX the way Rumpkin did. I'd definitely like to get my hands on a couple bottles.

    Anyone heard anything yet?

    I'm sure we will have the arbitrary 2 month delay we always enjoy here in Texas...it will hit sooner or later, probably later.

    From their facebook page:

    Avery Brewing Company Hey all! We can only guarantee availability of a bottle (or 12) on the release day here at the Avery Tap Room, and will do our best to get some out there.

    I would be very surprised to see uncle jacobs stout in Texas... though i said that about rumpkin. However, unless Im mistaken, Uncle Jacobs is a smaller bottle count than rumpkin..... I guess we'll see

    Hmm...this contradicts what I'd been reading in the CO forums, sounded like people were able to pick it up at local bottle shops (although with limited capacity like a 512 WB2xPP release).

    A lot of the questions before that reply were if it was making it's way to other states. One of them being TX...

    It's funny that this thread came up because I just sent Avery an email about it this morning. The label says the same case count as rumpkin(512 cases).

    How does Uncle Jacob compare to Mephistopheles?

    The label actually says 694 cases and it's friggin' delicious. It's on shelves here, but 1 bottle limit everywhere I've seen.

    Hello. They have 70 cases or so ready to ship to Texas as soon as the label gets approved. I got this from the horse's mouth, aka an Avery rep.

    On a somewhat similar subject, have you guys noticed Out of Bounds Stout is really the only beer that has never made it down here? At least I've never seen it here in Dallas. I am not counting the small batches of Barrel Aged Series or one offs like the Ale To The President, but Out Of Bounds Stout is a yearly beer, and it's basically the only beer in their portfolio that is not sold here. My guess is that the label never got approved by TABC before, and it just has to be resubmitted now.

    Here's the response I got back

    "We do have some Uncle Jacob's slated to roll to TX, but we haven't heard back from the state as to whether or not it'll be approved in the state. I'd expect we'll hear back in the next few weeks and have the beer out there in about a month."

    Signing on this thread to get updates as it rolls out. Looks like a perfect bottle to store with the Demon series

    Yes!

    I can't seem to age any of the Demon series. No matter how many bottles I get I drink'em fresh. Soooo goooood!

    Is a case of 12oz bottles 24 or 12 for this beer?
     
  22. SalukiAlum

    SalukiAlum Advocate (550) Colorado Dec 19, 2010

    They come in 6 packs. But my understanding is cases are 24x 12 oz bottles and 12x bombers. I could be wrong, but that's what I assumed was the norm?
     
  23. mattisloco

    mattisloco Savant (475) Texas Feb 13, 2007

    I believe these will be sold individually, not in 6pks. Thats typically what Avery does with their higher alcohol beers.
     
  24. mattisloco

    mattisloco Savant (475) Texas Feb 13, 2007

    And they are 12oz, no bombers in Texas of this one.

    I have a few bottles from trades and a buddy found some for me when he was in Denver last week. They are 12 oz bottles sold individually. Killer beer. Like a BA Mephistopheles.

    H0rnedFr0gs Advocate (510) Texas Mar 12, 2012 Verified

    Just assume between $7-8
     
  28. mattisloco

    mattisloco Savant (475) Texas Feb 13, 2007

    I'd assume it's higher. Mephistopheles' is around $11 a bottle and Uncle Jacob is higher in alcohol... I do hope you're right though.

    Central Market in Fort Worth had it (Meph, Beast, Samuel) for 7.99, same for King's liquor. No need to rehash the retail pricing battle though. I love Meph at $7.99, I would pass at $11 though...it's alot of cash to drop down to have to hold on to it for a year or two

    It went $10 at the brewery. I would guess it would be a minimum of that price

    Rumpkin was $11 no reason for this to be less.

  36. I received one from a friend in CO last week and shared it with a friend this weekend. Tasty stuff. Worth a try for sure.

    A case, in this case, is 24 bottles. Anytime you have 12oz bottles, a case is always 24 bottles (I have yet to see otherwise anyway).

    In the case of bombers, or 22oz bottles, a case is 12 bottles. In the case of 750ml bottles, a case is 12 bottles, unless it's Cantillon or a few other Belgians, which are 6 bottles to a case.

    Cheers,
    Chad
