    I will be in Houston for the week. Do any stores carry ABW?

    ABW is not in Houston yet. Have to go to Austin.

    I think DFW gets ABW as well now, correct me if I'm wrong.

    I don't think you can buy packaged Austin Beerworks in Houston (yet), but Nobi Public House tweeted over the weekend that they'll be tapping some soon. As far as I know, they'll be the first place to have it in Houston.

    @nobipub: "@AustinBeerworks Black Thunder, and Fire Eagle will be pouring from our taps soon!"

    Sugar Land flying saucer has had Black Thunder in cans a few months back. Not sure if they still do.

    On another note they did not have ABW but I did find a lonely bottle of Abyss 2012 in Katy

    Well shit. I wish I could have tried Sputnik. I even tried to work out a trade with a couple people in Austin with no success. I guess I should start going to Cottonwood.

    Yes, yes you do. Roasted, coffee, awesome.

    Craft Pride is the last place that I know of that has it on tap.

    We had a bunch of package come in to Houston a year or so ago (maybe more), but I think that was a one-shot deal. I've heard rumblings that it'll be back in Houston soon. I hope that's correct, I dug what I got to try.

    Still no plans on the horizon to leave the Austin-area. We're growing about as fast as we're comfortable with, and Houston is a hungry beast.
