    Yep, the Sugar Land Specs gets it every year... which is where i usually get it at. I'll drop by there today to check.

    The places I've never seen it before in the previous years is at an HEB or Whole Foods here in the Houston area...

    Spec's Smith Street/Midtown/Downtown is all the same location.

    Just left Specs. The guy told me he couldn't tell me how many we're left. He seemed very annoyed about Abyss, though.

    Was it a Hispanic guy? And I'm sure he was. He has to be going back and forth to pass out the beer all day and make sure he's b
    Not giving out to other people. I'm sure he is tired from walking circles

    It was not a Hispanic guy and he should be excited that it's finally here.

    I know the person I got it from in the morning also seemed a bit ticked off. He would go get a few bottles and when he came back to hand them off there was a new line of people asking for it.

    2010, Abyss could be found on shelves for at least a two month period. It was just about as the beer hype train in Houston was being installed. Late 2010 was still awesome for beer shopping..as in no fighting mobs for a bottle of limited release beer...good old days.
