    Shared a bottle of this last week and didn't care for it. Definitely wouldnt pay what it's going for on draught or bottle.

    Loved the XIV.

    They obviously are clueless...good thing not all the Specs beer guys in the Austin area are morons. I was told by Sunrise that next week is what they are being told. "Next week"...where have I heard that before...?

    Specs Brodie has gone to shit since Ruben left. They're quite arrogant (or at least Dan is) and will freely badmouth every other beer dept. member from his own store, to every other Austin area store. Needless to say, they could have dark lord for $2 a case and I probably still wouldn't shop there. (I would; however, have no problem having someone else pick it up for me I guess).

    Specs Houston just posted on Fb that they have the Old Raspy XV in (assuming at the central location). No word if this means Austin stores will have it soon too

    Growlers Free and Wine to Go guys quoted me $18 on the BA Old Rasputy!

    That's not too bad!

    As of 12:15pm they still had at least 4 bottles on the shelf. One less than they did at 12:14pm. (asssuming you mean Growler Beer & Wine on Waugh).

    Spec's Smith had on Saturday morning. My pops, who enjoys craft beer but only discovers them at the local pizza shop, picked up one and bragged about it to some length. I managed to pick up a few too....looking forward to it cooling down.

    That's what I'm thinking...at least giving it some months before opening the first one.

    Sunrise Minimart JUST (like 4 minutes ago) tweeted that they have it. I imagine it will be hitting town all over this week

    i was at downtown specs when i saw the tag for this last Friday, one person said it was coming off the truck, another said it was coming later. I didn't have time to wait around to figure out who was right lol.

    Cool. Thanks for posting, I need to go to North Austin tonight to take care of some wedding stuff anyways. Any idea on the price? I'm assuming that I'll need some lube. :-D

    If it doesn't get kicked back because of stupid UPC issues, there should be some at CM Westgate tomorrow.

    A couple of days ago I saw about six bottles on the HEB on Buffalo Speedway just south of 59. Not sure if they're still around, though... I didn't buy one. There wasn't a price label for it, and I'm sure it's over $20... Don't think I can bring myself to spend that much on it.

    I drank one the other day (fresh). It was delicious. I like it a bit better than the BCBS '12 I drank a few days prior. I'll definitely be aging the other I got.

    Im slowly weaning my way off all specs really(except round rock). Arbor walk has been an abomination off and on since i moved here, brodie, as well as being a bit south for me, has always come off a bit snobby imo.

    Prob shouldnt be advertising this because the quantity will be limited im sure. But the Brat Haus in Scottsdale will have a barrel of BA Old Rasp on tap the Tuesday of AZ beer week.

    Specs Arbor Walk is selling them. Not sure how many left...you have to ask of course and 1 per. $21.84 plus tax...
